2023 Global Classroom Performance

Perseverance banner


This year in October students in Pennsylvania and across the globe will watch a streamed performance of Perseverance based on the book Perseverance: One Holocaust Survivor's Journey from Poland to America by Melvin Goldman and Lee Goldman Kikel and adapted for the stage by L.E. McCullough.

The world premiere of Perseverance brings to the stage a powerful memoir of healing and renewal. Few visitors to the G&S Jewelry Store in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood during the 1960s and ’70s were aware that the cheerful proprietor, Melvin Goldman, had spent his teens enduring the horrors of Auschwitz before arriving as a penniless refugee in postwar Pittsburgh intent on reshaping his family’s destiny and replacing Darkness with Light, one shop patron at a time.

Students will discuss the play, the literature, and topics related to the Holocaust as they connect across the globe and explore how they can make a significant positive impact in their schools and communities.

In the past, we have joined students from the following countries:
Dominican Republic, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Poland, Rwanda, South Africa, and the United States

This year the Global Classroom is scheduled during the week of October 16, 2023
