Grade 11 Play to follow (must purchase tickets)
And a Child Shall Lead is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the “Jewish city” established by the Nazis hear Prague as a way station before the death camps.  In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty – playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper – all at peril.  Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war. 
Due to the sensitive subject matter of this play, we are recommending it for age 10 and up. It is a view of the Holocaust through the eyes of children, and a way of honouring their memory through sharing their poems and stories.  Furthermore, it is a connection to issues that are still present today. If you have further questions about the content, please do not hesitate to contact the director, Chani Wiens, at wiensc@umei.ca.
