The Mitzvah Project is a combination of theatre, 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 “mischlinge” — the derogatory term the Nazis used to characterize those descended from one or two Jewish grandparents — who served in Hitler’s army. After the lecture, Mr. Grunwald leads a discussion with the audience.

Roger Grunwald has been a professional performing artist for over thirty years. Roger was honored with a grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) for the creation of

The Mitzvah Project. He is a veteran theatre, film, TV and voice actor and has appeared in over 70 stage productions in the United States and Europe.

Roger was also an activist-builder, fundraiser and Public Relations Director for the non-profit All Stars Project (ASP), which has pioneered an innovative approach to youth development using theatrical performance.
