Monday, April 2
Holocaust Survivor Steen Metz
Laboratory Theater of Florida is proud to unveil its first community talk for its new Repair the World Education Center. On Monday, April 2 Holocaust Survivor Steen Metz, will speak about his experiences within a concentration camp in the Czech Republic. Mr. Metz will be the first speaker within our tolerance and cultural education programming this season. His riveting question and answer discussion coincides with Holocaust Remembrance Month in April.
In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah. For the most part, Yom Hashoah has been observed with candle lighting, speakers, poems, prayers and singing. Often, six candles are lit to represent the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust. During this time, Holocaust survivors speak about their experiences or share in the readings. Throughout Florida, synagogues and Jewish service organizations will hold Holocaust remembrance events available for the public to attend. Though we are not a religious organization, we are a center for all people. It is through theater and the arts that people get a chance to share and learn about each other. It is our mission to enlighten, bring awareness and break down the walls of fear and hatred with education and understanding.
Holocaust Survivor Steen Metz, will speak about his experiences within a concentration camp in the Czech Republic. He will share with patrons on an intimate level what it was like to be yanked from his home by Nazis at the age of eight with his parents and herded like livestock onto boxcars with little air, no food or water. Mr. Metz will not not mince words or edit what it was like to live within the cramped and flea infested confines of a concentration camp. Listen as he speaks from the eyes of a child what it was like to watch his mother be abused by cruel Nazi officers and to find out his beloved father was starved and beaten to death. Mr. Metz, is a warm, affable husband, father and grandfather who spends his senior years and retirement telling his story throughout the country. He accepts no pay or renumeration for his captivating talks and discussions. His only request is that each person that hears his story share with four more people so that the Holocaust may never be forgotten or denied.
At Laboratory Theater we have the honor and privilege of hosting Mr. Metz for a heartfelt talk on at 7 p.m., Monday, April 7.
There is no fee to listen to Mr. Metz but a $10 donation is suggested. Proceeds will be given to the Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Southwest Florida in Mr. Metz's honor.
