DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - eTradeWire -- (Delray Beach, FL – December 5, 2022) Marjorie Waldo, President & CEO of Arts Garage, today issued a public statement on antisemitism and the Holocaust by playwright Tyler Ellman, who's play Tap Dancing Through Auschwitz will be presented at Arts Garage on December 22 and 24.

Public Statement by Tyler Ellman

Last month—November 9, 2022—marked 84 years since Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass, an egregious moment in history that initiated the slaughter of millions.

Among them are my family that resided in a little town in Hungary, now modern-day Ukraine, called Svalyava

The black and white videos with violins playing in the background educating us about the Holocaust just are not cutting it anymore.

Here is why

We need to do better connecting with the younger generations.

THEY are the ones who will continue to tell the stories and history of what happened. THEY are the ones who will raise the next generation and share the horrors of our past. And THEY are our only hope, of creating a better and more loving future.

We should give what every high school kid would consider their DREAM - spending the entire class period watching a movie… Yes, a movie. Watching compelling, but educational movies in school, like Schindler's List, Defiance, and even JoJo Rabbit.

We can all be that tiny ripple of hope.

When I went to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Israel, I felt something that I never wanted a single person to feel. I felt like a fish in a fishbowl. How could someone hate me so much for just being me? How can someone hate others for them being who they are?

From that day forward, I never wanted a single person to feel like that again. Starting at the age of 16, I began my mission to educate others. I befriended child survivors, who after suffering horrendous childhoods, are some of the most compassionate, open-minded, strongest, and most loving people I know.

This is more than antisemitism – it's a lesson for the world at large. This is what happens when we generalize, discriminate, and turn the other cheek. This is not just about reaching young Jewish audiences but in fact ALL young audiences.
