Henryk Altman doesn’t see himself as a Good Jew. He escaped Treblinka twice, joined the Resistance, navigated form the ghettos of Warsaw, through Germany and onto Norway, often “passing for white.” But as he will explain, no one survives war by being good.

Fascinating stories and great characters make for great theatre. Henryk’s journey offers hope and humor, as he gets away with... a lot of things.
