On May 29, 2000, The Washington Post published "Putting a New Spin on an Old Show; Passion Play Takes a Kinder Look at Judaism." The article discusses the revision of a Passion play that has taken place every decade in Oberammergau, Germany since 1634. "Many of the story's most ardent critics now declare this version, which premiered May 21, a milestone in decades-long efforts to expunge negative images of Jews."
