From his St. Louis suburban den, Holocaust survivor Henryk Altman faces an interviewer. From the time his mother gives him pork bone as a teething ring, Henryk struggles with what is meant to be a “good Jew.” Fifteen when Poland was invaded, Henryk navigates the ghetto, escaping Treblinka twice, and “passing for white” to get through the war. He makes his way from Poland, through Germany, making it to Norway when the war ended. He did not make it out by being good. “No one can be good and survive a thing like that. Told with humor and hope, this survivor’s stories are unique to him but universal to all. The play is based on a multitude of interviews from a single survivor.
