On November 11, Taurel portrayed Irving Greenwald in “An American Soldier’s Journey Home: The Story of Irving Greenwald” on stage in the Library’s Coolidge Auditorium, not far from the World War I exhibition and the diary on display. Taurel’s one-man show wove together archival images, music, and diary excerpts to narrate Greenwald’s entrance into the service and his experiences in France. Clad in period uniform and using a minimum of props, Taurel vividly conveyed the intensity and terror of trench warfare, the jubilation of the troops following the Armistice, and Greenwald’s love for his family, particularly his wife, Leah.  Read the rest at the Library of Congress blog post here.
