A stage adaptation of the book The Diary of Anne Frank, probably the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the Holocaust, is performing throughout Montenegro for the first time ever, with the support by EAJC.
This incredible play has premiered at the cultural center “Budo Tomović“ in Podgorica, on June 11, opening as well in Niksić on June 15 and in Bijelo Polje on June 16. The play got a great response from the young audience.
The play will travel to 15 other Montenegrin municipalities, reaching out to the young generation and inspiring to never forget the inhuman tragedy happened during the Holocaust.
“Thanks to the cooperation between the Jewish Community of Montenegro and the “Akord” Cultural Creative Centre, this remarkable play can touch the hearts of the young people of Montenegro. The rising anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence make this play more necessary than ever”, – said EAJC President Mikhail Mirilashvili.
“The tragedy of a Jewish girl and her family is one of the most enlightening and vital stories in the world. IWe are proud that the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress was instrumental in presenting the play in Montenegro for the first time”, – said EAJC Director General of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress Haim Ben-Yaakov.
