And Then They Came for Me
And Then They Came for Me is a play by American author James Still. It is a multimedia production, which combines tapes of interviews with Anne Frank's friends who survived the Holocaust – Ed Silverberg (formerly Helmuth "Hello" Silberberg) and Eva Geiringer Schloss - with live actors recreating the scenes from their lives. It is part oral history, part drama, part remembrance, and is ensemble driven.
