Wiesenthal

A Play About Nazi-Hunter, Simon Wiesenthal

Northshore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie

October 20-21, 2018

“Heartfelt, deeply moving and compelling; he makes history come alive. Wiesenthal should be required viewing for all.”

Huffington Post

 
Simon Wiesenthal “the Nazi-hunter” was an ordinary man who did extraordinary things. His promise to the six million who died in concentration camps and to those that survive was “you will never be forgotten.” Starring award-winning actor and writer Tom Dugan, the one-man play Wiesenthal tells the incredibly compelling story of a holocaust survivor who was responsible for bringing over 1,100 Nazi war criminals to justice!
 
Intelligent, funny, flawed and noble, Wiesenthal was a universal hero and was nicknamed the “Jewish James Bond.” His unbelievable dedication and tenacity over decades is honored in this play, which gives equal weight to his wisdom and wit during his long, purposeful life.  Among the many that Wiesenthal helped bring to justice is chief of the Gestapo’s Jewish Department who implemented the Jewish genocide, Adolf Eichmann. After being challenged by Austrian Holocaust deniers to prove that Anne Frank actually existed, Wiesenthal located the Gestapo officer, Karl Silberbauer, who found and arrested Anne Frank and her family.

“Wiesenthal succeeds with skill and unexpected humor in bringing its heroic figure to life.”

New York Post
 

 

“For your benefit, learn from our tragedy. It is not a written law that the next victims must be Jews. It can also be other people. We saw it begin in Germany with Jews, but people from more than twenty other nations were also murdered. When I started this work, I said to myself, ‘I will look for the murderers of all the victims, not only the Jewish victims. I will fight for justice.’”

—Simon Wiesenthal
