Educators of grades 7-12 are invited to join Dr. F.K. Clementi, Associate Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of South Carolina, in her exploration of Anne Frank as a writer, a humorist and a resister.
To the world, Anne Frank remains an immortal icon of the Holocaust. However, we often overlook her historical and literary role. This workshop offers insight into Frank’s diary as a literary work of art in its own right. By focusing on Anne’s narrative and rhetorical devices, participants will see a new interpretation of the diary. With the help of photos, videos, and direct textual quotes participants will explore Frank’s relationship with her mother and the people she loved, her understanding of their historical circumstances, and her deliberate acts of resistance.
Your $10 registration fee included light dinner and all materials. Registration available below.
Dr. Clementi’s talk is made possible by a generous gift from Peter Stern, in honor of his parents Catherine and Herbert Stern.
