In this joint presentation and performance, Witek Dąbrowski and Leora Tec will present the work of Brama Grodzka-Teatr NN, a cultural institution and theater dedicated to preserving the memory of the Jews of Lublin, Poland, and staffed entirely by non-Jewish Poles.

They will describe how their two divergent backgrounds led them to the same ultimate goal of Jewish remembrance, and how their histories and meeting ultimately became a part of that story. Interwoven into the presentation will be Dąbrowski’s one-man interpretation of a selection of stories authored by Nobel Prize-winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer. These stories reanimate the world of Singer’s youth in the Jewish Poland of 100 years ago. The presentation by Tec and Dąbrowski will be in English, while Dąbrowski’s performance will be in Polish with English supertitles.

A complimentary guided tour of the Vilna and its history will run approximately 45 minutes before the start of the program.

Offered in partnership with the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center at NEHGS.

Witek Dąbrowski is an actor and storyteller. He is a founding member and the deputy director of The Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre Centre in Lublin, Poland. Leora Tec is a writer and speaker.
