In conjunction with the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center and Burke-Cohen Entertainment, the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust presents a special staged reading of “Righteous,” a new play by Drama Desk Award-winner Jeff Cohen, on Monday, Aug. 24, at 7:30 p.m., via Zoom.
“Righteous” is the true story of Eduard Schulte, a captain of German industry and member of Hitler’s inner circle who warned the world of Hitler’s plan to murder all of the Jews in Europe. Schulte’s alarm reached the desk of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in December 1942.
Schulte’s identity was a closely guarded secret for over 40 years, and his heroic act to stop the Holocaust was kept hidden from his family and the world. “Righteous” uncovers a compelling and poignant portrait of a man who risked his life and the lives of his family to stand up against evil. In 1988, Schulte was posthumously honored by Yad Vashem.
The reading stars Frank Wood, Johanna Day, Jessica Hecht, Denis O’Hare, Richard Kind and Peter Jacobson. It is being held in conjunction with the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, the Florida Holocaust Museum, the United Jewish Association of Toronto and the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. A $10 donation is suggested. For information, visit lamoth.org/news–events/events/righteous-.
