The Mitzvah Project
Saturday, March 5, 7:30 pm
Historic Fifth Street School, 401 S. Fourth St., 702-229-ARTS

Admission $10 Advance/$15 door

Roger Grunwald presents The Mitzvah Project, a one-person play and lecture that examines one of the most astonishing stories of the Second World War.

The Mitzvah Project is a combination of theater, history lesson and conversation, currently on a national tour, in which actor, playwright and child of survivor, Roger Grunwald, explores one of the most shocking aspects of the Jewish experience during the Second World War. Through the story of Christoph Rosenberg, a German half-Jew, the one-person drama, created with director and co-author Annie McGreevey, reveals the surprising history of tens of thousands of German men known as “mischling”, the derogatory term the Nazis used to characterize those descended from one or two Jewish grandparents, who served in Hitler’s army. Grunwald’s post-play lecture delves deeper into the history that produced these mischling-soldiers; men who were the product of two centuries of German-Jewish assimilation, intermarriage, conversion and the striving of a people committed to calling the German Fatherland their home. After the lecture, Mr. Grunwald will lead a discussion with the audience. For more information, go to
