Ellen Burstyn, Kathleen Turner, and other celebrities will take part in Holocaust Remembrance Day Monday at Remembrance Readings events, where they’ll read plays set during the time of the Holocaust, according to the Associated Press.

The readings will take place at theaters across the country with the goal of “raising Holocaust awareness by having play readings chosen from the Holocaust Theater Catalog,” according to the National Jewish Theater Foundation’s website. The plays include Jeff Cohen’s “The Soap Myth” about a Jewish journalist writing a profile of a Holocaust survivor and Jesse Eisenberg’s “The Revisionist,” which follows an American writer who grows close with a Polish relative.
