Description

The Diary of Anne Frank
by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
A New Version
by Wendy Kesselman
from her original adaptation
World Premiere

September 8 - October 2, 2022

This transcendently powerful adaption for a current generation brings new life to the story of Anne Frank, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl who lived through the 1942 Nazi occupation of Holland. It tracks the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, capturing the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence while also painting a coming-of-age story about a spirited young woman. Anne Frank’s account, told through her extraordinary diary, is a compelling self-portrait of a young writer whose promising life was tragically cut short and it continues to serve as an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of human history.

 

Accompanied by the exhibit Let Me Be Myself: The Story of Anne Frank

 

This guided visiting exhibit from the Anne Frank Center discusses the life and struggles of Anne Frank from her birth in Frankfort, Germany in 1929 to her death in the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp in 1945. It then jumps forward to the present, creating a personalized experience that has visitors learning about their own individual identities and how people continue to face discrimination and exclusion today.
