Holocaust Education: Lida Stein and the Righteous Gentile
Lida Stein and the Righteous Gentile
Lida Stein and the Righteous Gentile is a play about ordinary people from ordinary families caught up in the extraordinary political and social upheaval of the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
This 8-person play focuses on the relationship between two teenage German girls: Lida Stein, who is Jewish, and her best friend, Dora Krause, who is not.
The two girls, their families and friends are all swept up in life-altering decisions about friendship, politics and family loyalty in difficult times.
Lida Stein and the Righteous Gentile examines the all-too timely issues of tolerance, bullying, bigotry, diversity, and the choices and consequences each one of us makes in life. This moving story, which is performed by professional actors, runs 55-minutes in length and is ideal for school assemblies.
A brief Q & A follows in which the audience is introduced to the actors and the topics of bullying and being a bystander are discussed along with the importance of speaking up and doing the right thing even when you’re scared.
Where is the show performed?
Lida Stein and the Righteous Gentile has been performed in public schools, Hebrew schools, synagogues, churches, senior centers and JCC’s.
It is a gripping play that has been enjoyed by both adults and students and serves as an excellent springboard for discussions about bullying and antisemitism.
Now, more than ever, is the time for Holocaust education.
