Thousands of children spent years, during World War II, hiding from their enemies, the Nazis, in dark, dank basements, attic rooms, convents, or haylofts.
Each day brought new threats of discovery and annihilation. Yet, in spite of all the terror they experienced, they consider themselves the lucky ones. After all, they escaped the death camps where the Nazis killed their parents and families.
Ed Lessing, one of the surviving Hidden Children of the Holocaust, tells the compelling story of his two-and-a-half years in hiding and his experiences in the Dutch Resistance as a teenager during the Holocaust years.
Ed’s story, which can be found in the book, The Hidden Children, by Jane Marks, emphasizes the courage of his mother, father and others who helped him survive.

|Imagination In Motion|
•Teaches Students How to Work Together
•Fun & Dynamic
Welcome to “Imagination in Motion”, the brainchild of Paul Rajeckas & Neil Intraub, physical theater practitioners who have presented thousands of children’s performances over the past thirty years!
Rajeckas & Intraub are a modern day Laurel & Hardy. Their sense of play and resilient on-stage friendship created Imagination in Motion!
The program is an athletic physical theater performance that plays like a live cartoon – drawing on various theatrical styles, including mime, modern dance and vaudeville – but turns these traditions upside down by combining them with dialogue, audience participation and a delightfully original soundtrack.
Highlights include the creation of a mechanical man who runs amok while the audience cheers, a boy’s struggle to escape from within a video game, and a giant vacuum cleaner that sucks both performers offstage.
Classroom workshops and Residency Available
Grades K-5 & 6-12
