Teens raise their voices to raise awareness

Gatineau, Quebec, March 16, 2007 — More than 40 Montreal teenagers will raise their voices in Gatineau to sensitize their peers to the plight of young people facing racism, genocide and anti-Semitism. Young Actors for Young Audiences (YAYA) bring their acclaimed production of No More Raisins, No More Almonds: Children’s Ghetto Songs to the Canadian Museum of Civilization on March 29 and 30.

No More Raisins, No More Almonds is an hour-long play, based on songs, written during the Holocaust, about the experiences of children and teenagers living in the ghettos of World War II Europe. It is presented in English with the songs in their original Yiddish. Most of the performers are students at Bialik High School in Montreal.

No More Raisins, No More Almonds is written by Holocaust survivor and educator Batia Bettman, and directed by Bryna Wasserman, Artistic and Executive Director of the Leanor and Alvin Segal Theatre and the Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre.
