The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century. Inside a secret attic annex in Amsterdam, 13-year-old Anne and seven other Jews hide as the Nazis deport the Jews of Holland to their deaths. For more than two years, all that will stand between them and the concentration camps is their trust in one another and the bravery of those harboring them. This powerful new adaptation captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence while Anne’s transcendent spirit is revealed as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”
