Can You Hear Them Crying?

By: Virginia Burton Stringer

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 11 girls, 4 boys, adjustable
Time: 30-45 minutes

Poetry, dance, symbolic scenery and costumes all work together to make this an unforgettable tribute to the thousands of children that did not survive their imprisonment at the Theresienstadt, Czechoslovakia concentration camp. In English translation, the narrative features actual stories and poems written by the lost children themselves. Their own words poignantly describe scenes of their daily life in the ghetto -- their moments of hope and despair.

Optional Extra: Holocaust Study Guide (36 pages): Designed as a pre- and post-performance study guide for Can You Hear Them Crying? this book may also be used as a supplemental study unit for the Holocaust, its history, and meaning. Included are historical perspectives, four maps, photos, definitions, a play analysis, biographies, and many projects and exercises for classroom use.
