Powerful Borderlines documentary-drama Yizkor goes on tour

24th January 2019

A powerful New Vic Borderlines documentary drama inspired by Holocaust survivors is returning to the stage for performances across the UK.

Yizkor will be staged at the National Holocaust Memorial Centre, Newark, on Holocaust Memorial Day, Sunday 27 January, before heading back to the New Vic on Monday 28 January for performances at 2.00pm and 7.00pm.

The production will then visit the newly opened Huddersfield Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre on Wednesday and Thursday 30 and 31 January.

In the New Vic’s documentary style, Yizkor was written using the testimonies of teenagers who lived during the Holocaust and aims to encourage young people to understand and tackle prejudice.

Written and directed by Susan Moffat, director of award-winning community programme New Vic Borderlines, Yizkor was inspired by Holocaust survivors, Ibi and Waldemar Ginsburg, who worked with Borderlines as part of its Holocaust education programme.

In recent years the production has toured schools and colleges across Staffordshire, with Borderlines working with thousands of the county’s young people to ensure important stories of Holocaust survivors are heard by future generations.

Tickets for Yizkor at the New Vic are priced from £7.50 to £10.00 and are available by telephoning New Vic Box Office on 01782 717962.
