About the program:

The Sydney Jewish Museum is partnering with the Monkey Baa Theatre Company to provide students with the unique opportunity of both seeing the performance of Hitler’s Daughter at Monkey Baa and visiting the Sydney Jewish Museum for an interactive session that includes personal testimony from a child survivor of the Holocaust and an age-appropriate tour of the Museum. The interactive session will focus on artefacts in the museum and the issues raised in the novel. This session will allow teachers to deepen students’ understanding of the novel and the play by providing a rich historical and personal backdrop.
