The Neville Public Museum

The Mitzvah Project


11:00 am to 12:30 pm

The Mitzvah Project is a combination of theater, history lesson and conversation in which actor and child of survivor, Roger Grunwald, explores one of the most shocking aspects of the Jewish experience during the Second World War.

Through the story of Christoph Rosenberg, a German half-Jew, the one-person drama - created with director and co-author Annie McGreevey - reveals the surprising history of tens of thousands of German men known as "mischlings" - the derogatory term the Nazis used to characterize those descended from one or two Jewish grandparents - who served in Hitler's army.

Following the performance Grunwald will lead a presentation and discussion with the audience that delves deeper into the topic.

Space is extremely limited and preregistration is required.  Please call or email Ryan at (920) 448-7840 or

This program is possible thanks to a generous grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council.
