Anne Frank in the 21st Century
March 14, 2018
7 p.m. Social Hall Jewish Community Campus
More than 70 years ago, before the end of WW2, a young girl died in concentration camp Bergen-Belsen. Two years later her diary was published and now she is one of the most famous icons of the Holocaust. Or maybe she is an icon of more than the Holocaust alone; an icon of injustice, racism and prejudice. The image of Anne has changed over the decades, but the place where she has written her famous diary attracts more than 1 million visitors a year. And who owns Anne Frank? I think we all do as we have all our own vision of her.
