Berlin Diary by Andrea Stolowitz

The playwright's great-grandfather kept a journal for his descendants after escaping to New York City in 1939 as a German Jew. Following the complicated lure of genealogy, Stolowitz goes back to Berlin to bring the story of her unknown ancestors out of the archives into the light. The record keeps as many secrets as it shares; how do people become verschollen, lost, like library books?

This public reading is part of a weeklong workshop supported by the Jerry A. Tishman Playwrights Creativity Fund.

The Jerry A. Tishman Playwrights Creativity Fund supports 3-5 day playwright-driven projects. The Fund is sustained in perpetuity by the Jerry A. Tishman Living Trust, with current support from the Scherman Foundation's Katharine S. & Axel Rosin Fund and the Time Warner Foundation. It was established in 2008 by a lead grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
