Thank you to L.A. Theatre Works for making these audio plays available for free listening until June 1, 2020.

 

Judgment at Nuremberg

 

Abby Mann’s classic story about the Nuremberg trials, under which German leaders were found guilty of crimes against humanity in 1945 and 1946. Even today, the play remains a shattering indictment of the consequences of unchecked authority and the seductive power of group thought.

Includes an audience talkback with Judge Bruce Einhorn, who served at the Justice Department supervising litigation against Nazi war criminals and is currently a professor at Pepperdine University.

Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in September of 2015.

Kindertransport

 

Diane Samuels’ play about families, secrets and survival takes us to the days of the impending Holocaust. As conditions deteriorated in Germany in the 1930s, many tried in vain to escape. But thanks to a British humanitarian effort, about 10,000 Jewish children from Germany and neighboring countries were relocated to live with families in the United Kingdom, while their parents stayed behind. This passage to freedom became known as Kindertransport.

Original sound and scoring by Peter Salem.

Includes a conversation with Kindertransport survivor, Hilda Fogelson.

Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in June of 2013.
