The play is an important tool, not just for Jewish children, but for all children to learn about racism, social responsibility and individual choice.
— Judith Kamber, Dean Emerita of Professional Development, Northern Essex Community College

Terezin has toured schools, colleges, churches, synagogues, and theaters throughout the United States and internationally for over forty years. It has been translated into several languages.  The play has been performed off Broadway, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, in Germany, including in Berlin and near Frankfurt, as well as at the Terezin concentration camp in the Czech Republic and at Auschwitz in Poland. 

Educators can use the play as a a multi-media experience to teach about racism, anti-Semitism, intolerance, bullying, and discrimination as well as the Holocaust.  The play brings these topics to life in a powerful way that textbooks and classrooms cannot convey.  The play helps young people to acquire pro-social skills and not to tolerate bullying and discrimination. 

We provide a companion curriculum and educational materials to educators and community leaders for use before and after the play, that meet State academic standards.  Performances of the play are followed by questions and conversations among the director (Anna Smulowitz), our cast and the audience.  

Performances of Terezin are approximately 75 minutes. This play is appropriate for children ages 12 and up, as well as for adults.

If you’ve not seen this play, you have missed a very deep involvement of your heart . . . and soul.
— Millie Blaustein, audience member
