Bring Remember: The Story of Abe Price to your classroom, school, or cultural center to experience a vital true story through a unique theatrical experience.

 Remember: The Story of Abe Price by Jeffrey Binder, a new original play based on a true story, is brought to you in partnership with The Holocaust Museum and Cohen Education Center of Naples.

At just 16-years-old, Abraham Piasecki’s life is uprooted by the Nazi invasion of Poland. From living in the the ghetto of Kielce to imprisonment at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Remember brings to life the harrowing true story of a Holocaust survivor who escaped Nazi captivity five times. This immersive, challenging, and ultimately captivating story of resilience brings us into one man’s memories and asks us to never forget.

Remember performances are available to all schools and education institutions. It is suitable for churches, synagogues, and community organizations.

For classroom performances, Remember features a 3-day educational experience that includes the following:

1) A pre-show lesson about the history of the Holocaust.
2) A 45-minute performance of Remember plus a post-show actor talkback.

3) A post-performance activity designed to encourage students to reflect and discuss content, themes, and their response to the play.
