Award-winning actors Ed Asner and Tovah Feldshuh star in a concert reading of The Soap Myth, a powerful play about survival, memory, and truth. Set more than fifty years after WWII, a young Jewish reporter grapples with different versions of the same story -  did the Nazis make soap from the corpses of murdered Jews?  Ed Asner portrays Milton Saltzman, a Holocaust survivor committed to proving that this atrocity happened while Tovah Feldshuh plays dual roles of a Holocaust scholar and a Holocaust denier - both of whom reject Saltzmans memory. Performed in tribute to Yom HaShoah, The Soap Myth dramatizes the painful confrontation between survivors, scholars, and Holocaust deniers, and questions who has the right to write history. Written by Jeff Cohen and directed by Pam Berlin, the production features Ned Eisenberg in multiple roles including Holocaust scholar Daniel Silver and Liba Vaynberg as journalist Annie Blumberg. The concert reading at the Center for Jewish History is part of the productions National Tour.

This performance will be filmed by ALL ARTS, a new broadcast channel and streaming platform produced and distributed by WLIW, a member of the WNET family of public media organizations. Visit for information on how to watch.

The program will be followed by a Q&A with Ed Asner, Tovah Feldshuh, Jeff Cohen, and cast.

Presented by Center for Jewish History, YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, WNET's ALL ARTS and Burke Cohen Entertainment
