Subject:        Merchant of Auschwitz?

Heard a (rumor?) that there was a production of "Merchant..." given by
prisoners in a concentration camp.  Can anyone confirm, deny or tell how
and when this rumor began? I was doing some research on post holocaust
productions of the play and ran across an experimental piece dealing
with the issue, but it did not seem to be based in Fact.

Regards,
Brantley
