Directed by Kris Winter and Tami Weiss, "And Then They Came for Me" was A.I.M.'s opening event (March, 2015), a production that encompassed arts integration through a deeply moving true story about the lives of Eva Schloss and Ed Silverburg.
The song "Don't Laugh At Me" was written by Allen Shamblin and Steve Seskin. Yarrow performed the song live while this slideshow featuring Menomonie's children played in the background. Their photographs captured their response to the question, "What does it feel like to be bullied?"
