  Dit programma wordt in het ENGELS opgevoerd

  Mr. Natale seamlessly portrays more than 15 characters;
  including German director, Max Ehrlich,
  actress Camilla Spira,
  Commandant Gemmeker
  and the beloved Dutch singing duo:
  Johnny and Jones.
  Natale developed The Westerbork Serenade
  after much research as well as interviews with survivors.
  In English, he dynamically incorporates period sketches,
  songs and accounts to make the audience acutely feel
  what it is to perform for one's life. Westerbork was not
  a death camp. It was crowded and food was scarce,
  but one could survive there. It even had a hospital,
  schools and a shop offering goods previously looted
  from the Jews. Administration of the camp was run by
  German speaking Jewish inmates. The SS commandant's pet project was a weekly cabaret show in the camp. The cabaret featured top Jewish entertainers from Germany and Holland. If one was in the show, one was "exempt" from transport - temporarily. By the end of the war however, most of the performers from Westerbork were also sent to their deaths in eastern camps, joining the eventual six million who died.
