Holocaust Theater Catalog Launch

Screening of the Filmed Play “The Soap Myth”

The University of Miami Sue and Leonard Miller Center for Contemporary Judaic Studies, the George Feldenkreis Program in Judaic Studies and The National Jewish Theater Foundation (NJTF) launch the ground-breaking digital Holocaust Theater Catalog with a screening of the filmed play "The Soap Myth".

The National Jewish Theater Foundation has designated the Miller Center at the University of Miami as the permanent home for its digital Holocaust Theater Catalog - a website project of the NJTF Holocaust Theater International Initiative (HTII). In addition to more than  550 current titles and authors, entries include synopses, prominent production(s), experiences chronicled, publisher, rights holder, authors, country of origin, language, cast breakdowns, etc. – as much information as available for each work. The catalog will continue to be refined, updated and grow through the inclusion of new material submitted from worldwide sources in all relevant languages.

“The Soap Myth,” written by Jeff Cohen and directed by Arnold Mittelman, tells the story of a young investigative reporter caught between numerous versions of the same story. “The Soap Myth” questions who has the right to write history – the people who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it, or those who would seek to distort it?
