Abstract (English):Historical authenticity in popular media has to be harmonized with aesthetic and dramatic considerations. With concepts like documentary theater (Dokumentartheater), theater-makers challenge historical authenticity and try to make historical sources accessible on stage. The author created another unique theater project based on collected sources. Her play The 614th Commandment is a result of over two years of research on the intersections of public history, documentary theater, and Jewish collective memory undertaken as part of the author’s Master’s thesis research for her Public History degree at the Free University of Berlin. The play itself is based on over 200 interviews conducted with American Jews in Los Angeles, California. She was inspired to embark on this project because of her both her own family history as well as her own experiences living in Berlin. Both the essay and the play deal with the intergenerational passing down of historical trauma and memory and ask how – or if – remembering such painful history can ever become less painful.
