A Film About the Life of Anne Frank", this special film was

created by the Anne Frank Centre located in the house of Anne's

hiding in Amsterdam. It places Anne's diary in historical context,

explaining the rise of the Nazis in Germany, the begin of World

War II, and the German invasion of Holland, all while it follows

Anne and her family on their flight from their home in Frankfurt

into the care of a group of Dutch Christians. Anne's life before

and during the years of hiding, as described in her diary, is

transformed from history to reality as the camera travels to her

old classroom, family home, to the hiding place, and even to

Auschwitz, tracing the footsteps of Anne and her loved ones in

space and time.

"Anne Frank's Diary" presents the comprehensive picture of the world in which Anne

lived, with commentary "by Anne herself" on each place, person, and event, and the

most thorough, informative historical narration available, as only the world-famous Anne

Frank Huis Museum could provide. From her happy life in Frankfurt to the history of the

diary's publication, this film turns what might otherwise seem "just a story" into the living

memorial of a most extraordinary little girl.

Originally entitled "Dear Kitty"

The Holocaust and Yad Vashem

While many know the figures and the general history associated with the Holocaust

("Shoah" in Hebrew, literally "catastrophe"), few understand the political developments

that led up to the rise of Hitler and the drastic social changes that he managed to

introduce practically overnight. "The Holocaust and Yad Vashem" chronicles these

developments and the "Zeitgeist" ("spirit of the times") of the German people from the

end of World War I through the rise to power of the Nazis, their polemical speeches,

book-burnings, terrifying rallies, the "German war machine's" weapons manufacture and

European conquest. From the seemingly innocent faces of the Nazi Youth Movement to

the anything but innocent Nurenberg race laws, "The Holocaust and Yad Vashem" makes

clear once and for all the social and political changes that turned this "most enlightened

nation" into an army of bloodthirsty monsters.

Behind this "proud nationalist triumph" lurk the scenes from Jewish life under their rule:

in the ghettos, on transports, in the concentration, work, and death camps. The true

decimation of European Jewry becomes strikingly clear when these scenes of misery and

death are contrasted with those of a flourishing, productive, and most happy European

Jewish community before the war. Many of these brave souls would not give up their

right to the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness without a fight: the Jewish

Underground, resistance and freedom fighters, and the various ghetto uprisings are

equally portrayed as crucial elements in the Jewish struggle to maintain morale... and

survival. Beginning and ending at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum in

Jerusalem, the film is itself the best answer to the question of who really triumphed in

this most horrid catastrophe.

"Yad", the word for "memorial" in the Holy Language, is also the word for "hand"... and

truly our remembrance, the cry of "Never Again!", depends not upon empty words, but

upon our actions.
