As part of professional development for teachers being held on Friday, Jan. 27, a group of Elgin Area School District U-46 high schoolers will conduct a table reading of a play based on the accounts of Holocaust survivors. The professional development session coincides with International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The play, "Thin Edge of the Wedge," was written by Phyllis Zimbler Miller, a 1966 graduate of Elgin High School. It is based on first-hand accounts she published, and interviews she conducted, while working as a reporter and editor for the Jewish Exponent, an English-language weekly newspaper in Philadelphia in the 1970s.
