|The Westerbork Theater Group's first production, "Bunter Abend"
(Colorful Evening), is staged in July and August 1943.
Max Ehrlich is the director, but also plays a speaking role.
Essentially, the program consists of scenes taken from the repertoires of each of the individual performers.
However, one new song in particular becomes the first Westerbork hit tune: "Hachscharah Song" (Hachscharahlied), about the girls in the Zionist workgroup by the same name in Westerbork.
The show is a big success and as a result the Theater Group gets permission to recruit further members... thereby saving a few more people from transport to the extermination camps in the East.
|The program lists 10 scenes:
