The play, Remember – The Story of Abe Price by Jeffrey Binder is another way the Museum presents a Survivor’s story to students.
Remember is a professionally written and acted play that combines the acting and writing expertise of Gulfshore Playhouse with the historical knowledge of the Holocaust Museum & Cohen Education Center.
The presentation tells the story of the late Holocaust Survivor and Museum Co-Founder Abe Price and his family during the Holocaust to students in a classroom setting. The play equates to a Survivor talk’s ability to show students history in a personal light.
An introductory, pre-performance workshop, presented by a Holocaust Museum Educator, provides an overview of the Holocaust and gives glimpses and direction for what the students will see in the play. Options for a second introductory workshop are available. Following the play, time-permitting, the actors are available for a Q&A with the students. A final workshop is hosted by Gulfshore Playhouse, where they relate the play to the students’ current world.
