Comedy Tackles Anti-Semitism

The tricky subject of anti-Semitism is explored through comedy in Teatr Na Woli’s production of Tuvia tenenbom’s Last Jew in Europe.

The play, which has English subtitles and uses documentary material, tells the story of love between a Polish man and his beautiful fiancée in the city of £ód¼. Knowing his bride-to-be’s xenophobic aversion to Jews, the groom never reveals his Jewish identity to her, claiming instead to be a ”Christian atheist.”

But two days before their wedding, a Mormon missionary from Utah, on an assignment to uncover Jewish families in £ód¼, arrives in town and declares that the groom is none other than the son of a famous German Nazi—and that the bride is actually Jewish. Will the two still marry each other?

The play, directed by Olga Chajdas, has received positive reviews from top Polish theater critics.
