Nesaquake Middle School eighth graders watched a powerful play on Tuesday morning in the school’s auditorium.

Port Jefferson-based Theatre Three presented “From the Fires: Voices of the Holocaust.”

The play traces the life of Rachel Gold, a Berlin teenager, and her experiences from 1937 through 1945, as the Nazis rose to power.

The play follows Gold from the inception of the Nuremberg Laws through deportation to Auschwitz and finally the death march to Mauthausen.

The students recently had heard in the same auditorium from 94-year-old Holocaust survivor Werner Reich.
