Finding hope in the darkest corners. One of the most powerful stories of the 20th century, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic in war-torn Amsterdam. Anne’s daily existence – her fears, her hopes, her laughter, her grief, and her family’s desperate attempt to preserve humanity in an inhumane world drive this transcendentally powerful true-life tale. Incorporating newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank as well as survivor accounts to create an impassioned story of the lives of Jews persecuted under Nazi rule, this is a story that continues to linger in our minds throughout the generations because of its optimism and intrinsic truth: No matter how dire the circumstances, faith in the good of people is what keeps the world in balance – even when all seems lost.
