"Loss and Found" at Santa Monica Playhouse

The latest project of former Museum Board members Renee and Klara Firestone, th is live narrative piece chronicles a particularly difficult, but defining, chapter in their family's life that was long held in the shadows. They hope that bringing this story to light will bring meaning and healing to those who may have had a similar experience. The powerful triple narrative takes the audience on a single journey in three perspectives, as a young adoptee searches for her identity and answers to questions of her Jewish/African-American heritage, while her biological mother and grandmother receive the reunion they had long hoped for.

SURVIVOR SPEAKER SERIES:
Joseph Alexander 
Sunday, July 2 at 3:00 pm


Joseph Alexander was born in 1922 in Kowal, Poland. He and his family enjoyed a comfortable and stable life until Nazi Germany invaded Poland in 1939. At the beginning of the war, Joseph's family fled and joined other relatives in the town of Blonie. In late 1940, Blonie's Jews were transported to the Warsaw Ghetto. Joseph's father bribed some guards to let Joseph and two of his siblings escape back to Kowal. This was the last time he saw the rest of his family. From Kowal, Joseph was sent to different concentration camps including Auschwitz-Birkenau. After the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, he was sent from Auschwitz back to the Warsaw Ghetto to clean up the destruction's aftermath. As the Polish Home Army advanced toward Warsaw, Joseph was sent to camps in Germany, including Dachau, and then on a death march. He was liberated by American troops in 1945. He immigrated to the United States in 1949 where he married and had three children.

The talk will be preceded by a docent-led tour at 2:00 pm.
