‘Coming to See Aunt Sophie’


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A play that made its debut in Germany has come to the United States.

The debut Saturday happened right here in Terre Haute at the C.A.N.D.L.E.S. Holocaust Museum and Education Center.

The play, ‘Coming to See Aunt Sophie’ recounts a true story about a Polish-Catholic Jan Karski who risked his life sharing the news of the news of the Holocaust in hopes to stop the massacre.

The play’s writer, Arthur Feinsod, said he hopes the audience will come away from the play feeling a sense of community and togetherness.

“I feel that this play has something to say to the whole community about the importance of people from different religions and different cultures to work together,” Feinsod said. “Work across boundaries to help each other in various situations.”

The fully staged and designed production will be performed at Indiana State University’s new theater on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
