The Soap Myth
Author: Jeff Cohen
Description: A young journalist explores the controversy surrounding the Nazi atrocity of making soap from the fat of murdered Jews – weighing a holocaust survivor’s eye-witness testimony against scholars’ insistence on evidentiary fact as a primary criteria and the pressures imposed by historical “revisionists” – i.e. anti-Semitic holocaust deniers. The play explores how history itself is determined.
