AND THEN THEY CAME FOR ME
REMEMBERING THE WORLD OF ANNE FRANK AND EVA SCHLOSS
One of the most widely produced new plays, And Then They Came for Me is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Ed was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary. Eva Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Her family went into hiding the same day as the Frank family. And like the Frank family, they were betrayed. On Eva's 15th birthday, her family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps.
Eva and her mother survived, and after the war her mother married Otto Frank (Anne's
father). Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, the ensemble-driven And Then They Came for Me breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in world-wide productions.
"This production is like a historic newsreel brought to life on the stage. And it works."
(Charles Epstein, WICR Radio, Indianapolis)
AATE Distinguished Play Award winner 2000
"The stark reality struck me as no production of The Diary of Anne Frank ever has. It was stunning
and brought tears to my eyes and those of others around me."
Judith Klein, The Jewish Journal, Boston
"It'll stay with you for the rest of your life." —The Indianapolis Star
"Take heed…lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and…teach them to your
children and to your children's children." —Deuteronomy 4:9
“Eva's story starts where Anne Frank's Diary ends” New York Daily News.
“It is a great tribute to the immense moral courage of people like Eva Schloss and her step-sister
Anne Frank that, more than 60 years on from the end of the Second World War, reflecting on their
life stories can help us develop a fairer and better society in the 21st Century both in Britain and
internationally. I want to congratulate all those involved in this unique production, for the impact it
has had to date and, I am sure, will continue to do so” Prime Minister David Cameron
“In the 21st Century we must continue to work together to combat all forms of extreme hatred. This
play is a solemn reminder of the devastating effects of not challenging the promoters of extreme
hatred. I wish Eva Schloss and the play's producer/director Nic Careem every success with this
production. Charles Kennedy MP
