progra12In an exclusive performance for The Graduate Center, George Bartenieff, one of the stars of New York Off- and Off-Off Broadway theatre since the early 1960s, will present The Klemperer Diaries, possibly the most important documents recording firsthand experiences of German fascism, and a timely portrayal of one man’s struggle to maintain his humanity in the face of barbarism. Protected by his non-Jewish wife Eva Schlemmer and his record as a front-line veteran of WWI, Klemperer began early on to record in his diary forbidden sentiments of resistance while keeping a careful record of the new restrictive laws and prohibitions. The New York Times wrote about this major performance in Bartenieff’s career: “Virtuosic … a masterpiece.” Directed and coadapted by Karen Malpede. A discussion will follow with George Bartenieff, graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and winner of three OBIE awards, and Dr. Steven Gorelick, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, The Graduate Center, CUNY, and 2001 recipient of a residential faculty fellowship at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, to examine The Klemperer Diaries.
