Because the world is three generations removed from the Holocaust there are few survivors left to bear witness. As a result our collective remembrance rituals are becoming historically remote and less personally tangible. In lieu of first person testimony to bear witness, theater is the most effective proxy for conveying the emotional and intellectual incomprehensibility of the Holocaust. It is the most powerful way to portray and reinforce its monumental truth, and make it abhorrently tangible again.
