The Diary of Anne Frank

Dec 01, 2016

By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

13-year-old Anne Frank, hiding in an Amsterdam attic with her family and a few of their friends during the Nazi occupation and persecution of the Jews, kept a diary glowing with dignity, hope, and humour for two dark years. Only Anne’s father survived the death camps. He published Anne’s diary, which became one of the most famous books of the 20th century, and a powerful play. The Diary of Anne Frank was co-directed by Amy De Felice and Professor of Drama Daniel vanHeyst.
