About the event

"Remnants" is a collection of short monologues based on survivors that Hank Greenspan (oral historian/playwright at University of Michigan) interviewed/schmoozed with over a 30 years period. They speak to some of the horrors themselves but mainly to the varied (and continuously evolving) ways in which these survivors have and continue to relate to their past. It is a very different approach to testimony. I feel that it is particularly relevant right now given that we are fast approaching a moment in which survivors themselves will no longer be here to share their stories.

Performed by: Laen Hershler 

Henry “Hank” Greenspan is an emeritus psychologist, oral historian and playwright at the University of Michigan who has been interviewing, writing about, and teaching about genocide and its survivors since the 1970s.  He is the author of On Listening to Holocaust Survivors: Beyond Testimony and numerous articles on memory and its retelling.

Laen Hershler is a Vancouver based theatre artist and teacher. He has performed extensively both within Canada and Internationally and has been a recurring sessional instructor at the UBC performance department. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in the field of Research-based theatre. Of particular significance, he is also a proud alumnus of the Jewish Young Peoples Theatre at Peretz.
