About this Event

Staged Reading – My Lost Bar Mitzvah

Wednesday, December 12 at 7:30 p.m.

Written by: Alicia DesMarteau

Directed by: Tom Carson

A play inspired by the true story of George Stern’s 13th year on the run from the Nazis in Hungary during the Holocaust. It was commissioned by a Holocaust survivor, George Stern.

George Stern shows up for bar mitzvah class 70 years late. Why so late? The answer unfolds as George and his rabbi prepare for his bar mitzvah. A month before George’s 13th birthday, Germany invades Hungary. George’s family is forced into a ghetto. George escapes and hides by passing as a gentile. His courage and wit shine through the darkness of the Holocaust. By the end, his bar mitzvah is no longer lost.
