In Forced to Flee, we bear witness to the memories, struggles and dreams of youth forced to flee violent conflict and persecution in Burma, also known as Myanmar. The visual stories in this exhibit illustrate that emotions conveyed and evoked by a single narrative image can tell a story of a thousand words, open hearts and build bridges for understanding.

The exhibit was curated by Seattle resident Erika Berg who facilitates visual storytelling workshops in all too often marginalized and misunderstood communities, including refugee communities from war-torn countries around the world. Forced to Flee won the 2016 Indie Book Award for Social Change.  PLAN YOUR VISIT

It captures the essence of a young 18 year old girl, who after just experiencing the Holocaust, finds the strength to tell her story, a story she will never tell again. A video introduction by Isaac Habib, son of Lucia Capelluto from the Kahal Shalom Synagogue in Rhodes, will be followed by a dramatic reading of Lucia Capelluto’s testimony by actress Claire Marx.

The conference will dive into the controversial role of the Roman Catholic Church and its relationship to the events of the Holocaust. The speakers will present on the heated debate about the role of Pope Pius XII, examine the role of Catholic anti-Semitism, inaction by many Church leaders, and actions taken by those resisting the Nazis. By contrast speakers will share the courageous stories of individual Catholics who resisted, such as Bernhard Litchenberg.

The final sessions will focus on the changing nature of the Catholic Church vis a vis the Jewish people, with the aim of understanding efforts to improve Jewish-Catholic relations and understanding, providing attendees with a message of hope that antisemitism can be defeated. Sponsored in part by the Holocaust Center for Humanity.

DarkRoad SeattlePublicTheaterOffered by Seattle Public Theater in partnership with the Holocaust Center for Humanity. "Dark Road" is a drama centering around the story of two sisters struggling to live with dignity during the rise of the Third Reich in Nazi Germany. This mature work will explore our human instinct for survival, the bonds of family, and the seductive power of evil.

Students will experience what it's like to be a part of a professional theatrical production, from auditioning, to memorizing their lines, to being fitted for costumes, all before the class culminates in a performance on Seattle Public Theater's stage.

Class Times: Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:30-9:00pm | Rehearsals: October 2- November 8 | Tech: November: 13-16 | Performances: November 17 at 7:00pm, 18 at 2:00pm & 7:00pm

Seattle Public Theater provides quality arts education programs to a diverse population that promotes lifelong learning in order to empower people to be active agents of change in the world around them.
