The Georgia Ensemble Theatre brought a performance of James Still’s Holocaust play “And Then They Came for Me” to the Walker School in Marietta on Friday, March 16, to enhance the Middle School curriculum.
The multimedia show re-creates the world of Anne Frank through the stories of two survivors who knew her, Ed Silverberg (her first boyfriend) and Eva Schloss (whose mother married Anne’s father after the war).
The Middle School is integrating the production into the curriculum. Sixth-graders have connected the show to their study of the Holocaust and Anne Frank in English classes. Seventh-graders are using it in their study of “To Kill a Mockingbird” in English. Eighth-graders are discussing the show in history classes.
