It will be performed by three Deaf actors in ASL and voice interpreted in English for non-ASL users.

The fates of the deaf in Nazi Germany has been a neglected topic in the story of the Holocaust. It is only recently that this almost unknown chapter of history has been the subject of documentation and research. – Director Bentein Baardson
