New Vic Borderlines

Developed with the support of the Imperial War Museum Fellowship in Holocaust Education

As part of United Nations Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 New Vic Borderlines are presenting YIZKOR

‘The best play about the Holocaust that I have ever seen….
accurate, moving, engaging and relevant’
Ruth-Anne Lenga, Institute of Education
Head of Holocaust Education Development Programme

YIZKOR follows the experiences of two teenagers Ariella and Moshe between May 1939 and May 1944.

The play has been created using words written in letters and diaries, witness and survivor testimonies of teenagers during the Holocaust. The words spoken are authentic and accurate.

Throughout the play the voices of Ibi and Waldemar Ginsburg, two Holocaust survivors who worked with us to develop the play are heard. The play is set in a Shtetl in Eastern Europe and allows audiences to gain an important insight into a way of life, a culture, a community that was all but wiped out as a result of the Holocaust.

Each performance will be introduced by Aida Haughton MBE, UN Translator and survivor of the Bosnian Genocide. Audiences are invited to participate in an interactive discussion following each performance and make their own ‘This Day’ pledge to stand up against prejudice, discrimination and hate.

Friday performance will take place in the Studio at 7.30pm

Monday performances will take place at 2.00pm and 7.30pm on the main stage

Every audience member will receive an empty Yizkor Passport typical of the era. They can use the information on the back to discover about individuals and communities affected by the Holocaust and add details to the passport. In this way they can acknowledge respect and remember
