Keeping the Stories of Jewish Poland Alive with Witek Dąbrowski & Leora Tec


In this joint presentation-performance Witek Dabrowski and Leora Tec will present the work of Brama Grodzka – Teatr NN, a cultural institution and theatre dedicated to preserving the memory of the Jews of Lublin, Poland and staffed entirely by non Jewish Poles. They will describe how their two divergent backgrounds led them to the same ultimate goal of Jewish remembrance, and how their histories and meeting ultimately became a part of that story. Interwoven into the presentation will be Witek’s one man interpretation of a selection of stories authored by Nobel Prize winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer. These stories reanimate the world of Singer’s youth – the Jewish Poland of 100 years ago.

The presentation by Ms. Tec and Mr. Dabrowski will be in English, while Mr. Dabrowski’s performance will be in Polish with English supertitles.


Witek Dabrowski is an actor and storyteller. He is a founding member and the Deputy Director of The “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre in Lublin, Poland.

Leora Tec is a writer and speaker. She is the founder and director of Bridge To Poland, and the American ambassador to and special projects partner of, The “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre.
