The Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice will commemorate Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Rememberance Day, by welcoming two of Charlotte's most respected actors, Charles LaBorde and Dennis Delamar. The actors will perform an adaptation from Kressman Taylor's "Address Unknown." This powerful work, capturing the correspondence between two German businessmen, was first published in 1938 and served as a wake-up call to Americans about the dangers and inevitable consequences of the growing European conflict. Today, it serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of intolerance. A dessert reception will immediately follow the performance.
