There is no "other." The "other" is us.

The Mitzvah Project is a one-hour, Holocaust/social justice-themed, theatrical-educational

program. It is currently being presented at high schools and colleges across America on the Zoom platform. Roger Grunwald is the co-creator, actor and lecturer.

"...Roger Grunwald's Mitzvah Project presentation on Zoom was a captivating and inspiring learning  experience for our students!”  — Dr. John M. Moore, Shaker Heights High

School, Shaker Heights, (OH)

Comprised of a short play, lecture and talkback, the 60-minute program engages several critical

socio-historical questions: “Who decides the meaning of culture, race and ethnicity?” “How is one’s identity determined?”  “Why do we demonize ‘the other?’” 


...The Mitzvah Project is the most successful educational program we have offered in these pandemic times.” Donald Berry, PhD, Gulf Coast Center for Holocaust and

Human Rights Education, Mobile (AL)


As a classically trained actor and proud son of an Auschwitz survivor, Grunwald’s goal is to make

sure that, with his mother’s generation dying out, the world does not forget and young people will

be able learn these critical lessons of history.  NEXT PAGE
