Alumna Sally Shatzkes in the News

The Drama Therapy Program is proud to celebrate the accomplishments of one of our graduates, Sally Shatzkes, who uses drama therapy to connect with survivors of the Holocaust and have their stories told. The Witness Theater Project, which is directed by Shatzkes, brings Holocaust survivors together with high school students. Through weekly meetings with the students, the survivors share their often harrowing stories which are then performed by the students in honor of Holocaust Rememberence Day. This work has earned Shatzkes some very worthy press, with articles in the Wall Street Journal and The Daily News.
