St.Paul performing arts performs true-life holocaust experience

St. Paul Catholic High School

Quick Note: This moving performance is not suitable for very young children. We recommend knowing if your child has had an introduction to the Holocaust in school.

Many courageous people during the Holocaust risked their liberty and their lives to help the persecuted Jews escape the torture that awaited them if Nazi soldiers found them.

Marsia Pawlina Szul was one such person.

A play about the story of her courage in harboring a mother, her newborn boy, young daughter, and another young Jewish girl opens on Friday, November 10 th and runs through Sunday, November 12 th at the St. Paul Catholic High School’s Theater.

Pawlina led the Nazi solders away from the family, hiding in a homemade bunker in their barn for two years. When she was discovered, she suffered unspeakable torture by the Nazis, yet she remained silent.

Angel in the Night is the winner of the American Alliance for Theater and Education’s Distinguished Play Award. This play is inspiring, even more so because it is based on the real actions of one brave young Polish woman.

The characters said they suffered with the horrible events Pawlina and all victims endured throughout the play.

“We are grateful to learn of love, respect, and adoration the Jewish characters feel for Pawlina, their savior during World War II.”

She is honored now in the Avenue of the Righteous Parks found outside Jerusalem and in Evanston, Illinois.

“Don’t miss your chance to see Connecticut’s award-winning high school theaters’ production of this true store of courage, compassion and heroism!”

Angel in the Night opens on Friday, November 10 th and runs through Sunday, November 12 th at the St. Paul Catholic High School’s Theater.

Performances are at 7pm Friday and Saturday with a 2pm matinee on Sunday.

Tickets may be reserved and purchased online at www.spchs.com Tickets are $8 students, $15 adults, $12 over 65.
