The New Diana Theatre Department will present Auschwitz Lullaby A Play in One Act Tuesday, April 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the Norton Lovell Auditorium.

Admission is free.

Inspired by actual events recounted in inmate diaries, this play tells the story of Jewish pathologist Dr. Isaac Jonah who, along with his wife and daughter, is interred at Auschwitz concentration camp in 1944 where he is assigned to work in the laboratory of Dr. Josef Mengele. Jonah searches for strength when he is asked to help in the escape of Lena, a young girl who has miraculously survived the gassing that killed her entire family.

He must weigh the safety of his own family against the life of this innocent girl.

The nearly successful attempt leads Jonah to perform the most courageous act of his life as he goes against everything his religion and his medical degree have taught him.

Parental guidance is suggested for young children.
