On May 15, Moishe House Philadelphia, the largest organization serving Jewish young adults in their 20s and 30s, in partnership with the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and the Holocaust Awareness Museum and Education Center, hosted “It Happened to Us,” a Holocaust remembrance event that featured monologues of Holocaust survivor testimony. Some of these monologues were based on performers’ own family Holocaust histories. The event concluded with personal testimony by Holocaust survivor Gunter Hauer about growing up as a Jew in Berlin and witnessing the rise of Nazism before fleeing to Shanghai in 1939. The pieces were workshopped and developed by local theater artist Amber Emory.
