§ Comment “March 21, 2003 . . . Dear Sirs, I’m honored to send you the synopsis of the monodrama written by me, ‘The Revenge’ (‘Then… there’) [whose] plot takes place during the Holocaust simultaneously in Jerusalem and in the concentration camp Birkenau. I would like to point out that the National Theatre of Romania presented a [radiophonic] version of the play, in Romanian, on the occasion on the Holocaust Remembrance Day last April, to millions of listeners [starring] the excellent Romanian actor, Maestrostefan Iordache. With the recommendation of the Romanian ambassador to Israel, Israel’s National Theatre “Habima” invited Mr. Iordache to perform “The Revenge” in the fifth national festival of ‘Theatronetto’ (enclosed is a copy of the letter of ‘Habima’’s invitation). The play ‘The Revenge’ was nominated in 2001 to the UNITAR (The Romanian Theatre Union) reward, which is the Romanian theatre Oscar. In 2002 the Romanian Writers Association from Israel decided to award the prestigious Sion reward to the author for the play ‘The Revenge’ and for his literal activities. I would like to note that the Ministry of Education (the pedagogical secretary – the central supervision of theatre teaching) recommended theatre teachers to present and discuss the play. The authority for the Holocaust remembrance ‘Yad Vashem’ awarded the author a grant for relevant literature and announced that the play was transferred to their [archives] and was added to the archives collection. If you would like to read the whole play, I’ll be glad to send you the complete version of ‘The Revenge’. Your opinion would be greatly appreciated, I’ll be grateful if you decide to recommend the presentation of ‘The Revenge’ in the theatre and television. Thank you in advance, Yonah Atlas, Member of the Writers Association.”
