The National Jewish Theater Foundation/ Holocaust Theater International Initiative commemorated World Theater Day, March 27th with a world wide screening of The Soap Myth. This NJTF produced filmed play was shown at the London Jewish Museum to a live audience while it was simultaneously made available via London based  Digital Theatre to internet audiences all over the world. After the screening a panel discussion led by NJTF President Arnold Mittelman, theater artists and scholars confirmed  the importance of Holocaust related Theater ( both live and filmed) in future Holocaust Education and Awareness. The questions were provided by the live audience, the panel and via social media from audiences who had viewed the play internationally.

The event was covered by The Jewish News, London’s largest Jewish newspaper, see article below.
