Dr. Hank Greenspan
Psychologist, Playwright, and Sociologist, University of Michigan
"Greenspan delivered an emotional, heartfelt performance in which survivors reflected on the destruction and aftermath of their lives." (Eastern Echo)
REMNANTS is based on twenty years of conversations with Holocaust survivors. Forty minutes in length, the piece is stark and minimalist, each segment recreating moments in which survivors reflect not only on the destruction but also on their lives in the aftermath. REMNANTS was produced for radio in 1992 and distributed to NPR stations across the USA. As a stage play, REMNANTS has been presented at 200+ venues throughout the U.S. and Canada as well as in Britain, Israel, and the Czech Republic.
Presented as part of the 23rd Annual Jewish American and Holocaust Literature Conference. Public programs are underwritten by The Betsy - South Beach, The Knight Foundation, and PG Family Foundation for 2017. Public programs are free, but you must register to attend.
The community is also invited to purchase access to the entire conference for a fee of $50 per day. See jahlit.com for tickets and access for scholar-presenters.
