To mark the Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January 2021, the Romanian Cultural Institute and the Embassy of Romania in the United Kingdom cordially invite you to the theatre performance “Yes, My Führer” (La ordin, Führer!) directed by Mihai Măniuțiu for the Jewish State Theatre in Bucharest.

The play, written by Austrian writer Brigitte Schwaiger, whose grandmother died in the Holocaust, stars renowned actress Maia Morgenstern as its lead character and has been presented in 2020 at the National Theatre Festival in Romania.

This monodrama is a meticulous study of a woman who focuses her life on the figure of the Führer and the principles of Nazi ideology, her fascination becoming an obsession.
