The Cleveland Israel Arts Connection was delighted to connect with Israeli playwright/actor Hadar Galron, who adapted Jacob Buchan's story, “Whistle: My Mother was Mengele’s Secretary,” about being raised “invisible” by Holocaust survivors. Her character, at 45, is just now assessing her own damaged state, wondering how she might finally break through and be a little happy. Second generation survivors respond to her portrayal of a woman who just wants to get her whistle back.

The discussion was moderated by Faye Sholiton, playwright and founder, Interplay Jewish Theatre.

Featured panelists included:
Hadar Gilron, playwright, screenwriter, actress, director, songwriter, and comedienne
Anne Lukas, board chair, Kol Israel Foundation
Hedy Milgrom, Jewish Federation of Cleveland
