Date Tue, Sep 13, 11:00am - 12:30pm
Duration   1h 30m

As international audiences flock to Oberammergau, Germany, to see its famous passion play portraying the last week of Jesus’s life, join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to learn how the production has changed since the Holocaust. Presented every ten years since 1634, the play’s script, staging, and costumes reflected and promoted the deep-seated anti-Judaism of European Christianity.

During this program co-presented with the Washington National Cathedral, hear from the play’s director and a pastor who specializes in Jewish-Christian relations about how dialogue and changes in Catholic teaching about Jews and Judaism affected the play.

Rev. Dr. Peter Pettit, Teaching Pastor, St. Paul Lutheran Church, Davenport, Iowa
Christian Stückl, Play Director, 2022 Oberammergau Passion Play, Oberammergau, Germany

Dr. Rebecca Carter-Chand, Director, Programs on Ethics, Religion, and the Holocaust, Mandel Center, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
