A sold-out hit in NYC’s 2022 United Solo Festival, this true story of WWII survival is back for One-Night-Only at the remarkable Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in downtown Manhattan. Good Jew features Frank Blocker as Holocaust survivor Henryk Altman and is co-authored with his late partner Murray Scott Changar. Based on multiple interviews with Mr. Changar’s late father, this solo play is directed by Jamibeth Margolis, granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, and produced by Peculiar Works Project.

Welcome to Henry Altman’s St. Louis den, 1986, where he reveals extraordinary adventures of survival during the Holocaust. He’s a man of quick wit, many skills, and the ability to speak four languages. Coming from the Warsaw ghetto, he escaped the Treblinka death-camp (twice!), joined the Resistance, blew up trains, and played cat-and-mouse with the SS throughout WWII. There will never be enough stories of Holocaust survival, but there are none like the ones of Henryk Altman.
