WALLA WALLA — A staged reading of “Auschwitz and After” will include a talk-back session with Pat Henry, a professor emeritus of foreign languages and literature at Whitman College.

Henry was inspired to write the play adaptation due to his interest in Holocaust studies. Adapted from Charlotte Delbo’s memoirs, it recounts the comradeship that allowed a group of French women to survive imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps and their difficulty in creating new lives upon their return to Paris.

The event is Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Power House Theater, 111 N. Sixth Ave., Walla Walla. Tickets are $12 for adults and free for students.
