The Middletown Arts Center presents the powerful and compassionate one-woman play, Silent Witnesses, written and performed by acclaimed actress Stephanie Satie on Sunday, April 5, 2020 at 3 p.m. Satie gives voice to four extraordinary women who are child survivors of the Holocaust during World War II.
Silent Witnesses is not the story of victims. It is an uplifting story of survival. Reenacting details based on interviews and conversations with child survivors, these stories are unique in the realm of Holocaust narratives. Their memories were shaped through a child’s lens, yet infused with the wisdom of the adults they’ve become.
Satie’s script, set in modern Los Angeles, begins decades after World War II as a group of women meet moderated by a therapist. The women have one thing in common: all of them, including the therapist, survived the Holocaust as children.
Silent Witnesses won Best Documentary Script from the United Solo Festival in New York in 2014 and received the Women in Arts and Media Coalition Collaboration Award in 2013.
