Jewish Museum-FIU premieres Holocaust-themed play

The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU has commissioned a new dramatic work based on the museum’s current exhibition, Stitching History from the Holocaust. The one act play is called “A Stitch in Time” and tells the true story of Paul and Hedwig “Hedy” Strnad. The young couple perished in the Holocaust after failed attempts in 1939 to secure visas to flee to the United States from Prague. The work premieres Sunday, Jan. 29, at the Miami Beach museum.
