Steeple Players Present: And Then They Came for Me
Thank you to everyone who came out to see the Steeple Players' production of And Then They Came For Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank. This poignant, multimedia play by award-winning playwright, James Still, weaves videotaped interviews of two teen-age friends of Anne Frank – Holocaust survivors Eva Schloss and Ed Silverberg – with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during WWII. The message of And Then They Came For Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank resonates beyond the 20th century genocide in Europe. As performed by a racially diverse cast, the play speaks to the senseless persecution of people worldwide based on nationality, religion, race, and gender.
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, I did not speak out
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.”
~ 1950's poem by Lutheran Pastor Martin Niemöller
