Dramatic Reading by Rabbi Polak
In this video clip, Rabbi Joseph Polak, an infant survivor of two concentration camps, his son Yankel, and wife Reizel, read the last part of the chapter "Tanya" from the rabbi's award winning memoir, After The Holocaust, The Bells Still Ring. The Polak family conducted a dramatic reading before older students of the Kesher After School as part of Yom Hashoah/Holocaust Memorial week. "Tanya" is the only fictional chapter in Rabbi Polak's book. Setting the Scene: Rabbi Polak (on the left) takes on the role of an angel, while his son Yankel (middle) plays the rabbi in-utero who is arguing against being born, and Reizel (right) reads the role of the narrator. Written in the form of a play, this chapter, is a must read-out-loud. The memoir, which has been well received both in this country and abroad, is a searing piece of literature, both in scope and concept. In a question and answer period following this presentation, Rabbi Polak recounted to Kesher After School students how he was reunited with his mother after the Holocaust. 5/3/2016
