This is The Diary of Anne Frank: the iconic dramatization of the legendary journals of a Jewish girl hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam during World War II. It is the world-renowned play that movingly details the inhuman darkness waiting to claim its incandescently human heroine.

DID YOU KNOW?

A Pulitzer Prize - winning theatrical version of The Diary of Anne Frank opened on Broadway in 1955, starring Susan Strasberg, daughter of Lee Strasberg, legendary founder of The Actors Studio. In 1997, a reworked version of the play appeared on Broadway with Natalie Portman playing Anne.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Anne Frank and her family, along with four others, spent 25 months during World War II in an annex of rooms above her father’s office. After being betrayed to the Nazis, all were arrested and deported to concentration camps. In March of 1945, nine months after she was arrested, Anne Frank died of typhus at Bergen-Belsen. She was 15 years old. Her diary, saved during the war by a family member’s aid, was first published in 1947. Its popularity inspired the 1955 play The Diary of Anne Frank, by the screenwriters Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. Today, her diary has been translated into 67 languages and is one of the most widely read books in the world.

“It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” – Anne Frank
