The heart of this performance focuses on the question as to how we can preserve first-hand accounts of the Holocaust once there are no longer any surviving eyewitnesses. The "disappearance" of Holocaust witnesses raises different questions and the artists in this unique production focus on this topic. As the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles, how can the horrors of the Holocaust be conveyed once there are no longer any living witnesses? Can video interviews, (which are available in large numbers in archives and on the internet) fill the gap?
Internationally renowned Israeli director David Maayan already addressed memory culture in various ways through his earlier work in theater. Together with actress Theresa Martini and musician Theresa Aigner, they have created new formats of remembrance.
Actress Theresa Martini transforms herself into contemporary witness Inge Ginsberg. Theresa Aigner sings and plays songs by Holocaust survivor Aleksander Kulisiewicz.
Ida Kelarová, one of the most important interpreters of Roma songs, performs Holocaust era songs together with her husband Desiderius Dužda.
