The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (NYTF), winner of a 2019 Drama Desk Award, on Sunday night celebrated the opening of Hannah Senesh, an award-winning play based on the diaries and poems of a heroic young woman who risked her life to save European Jews from the Holocaust, and who paid the ultimate price.

The programming provides artistic expression concurrent with the exhibition Auschwitz: Not long ago. Not far away. being presented at the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, Edmond J. Safra Plaza, 36 Battery Place, NYC. Hannah Senesh is being performed (in English) through August 18. Tickets start at $49 and are available at www.nytf.org or by calling 212-213-2120 Ext. 200.
