On her 13th birthday, Anne Frank receives a diary as a gift. Just weeks later her family enters into hiding in Amsterdam. For more than two years, Anne carefully records her thoughts, feelings, and observations in her now-iconic diary, one of the most widely read books in the world today. Through photos, narratives, and artefacts, Anne Frank – A History for Today illuminates the effect of National Socialism on one Jewish family, and explores the legacy of this history for all Canadians.
The program also features Out of the Archive: A Companion to Anne Frank — A History for Today, an artefact-based exhibit of child survivors who settled in Canada after the war.
Exhibit produced by The Anne Frank House. Supported by
the Consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands,
Isaac & Sophie Waldman Endowment Fund, and
Ralph Markin & Bob Markin, in honour of a dear friend, Leslie Spiro z"l.
