"In celebrating the spirit of optimism that shines through the thoughts and dreams of one extraordinary thirteen-year-old during the darkest of times, Bernard Kops has created a dramatic masterpiece" (Time Out) "This play has been a catalyst in stimulating young people not only to question the past but also to confront the very real issues of racism today." (Jenny Culank, Artistic Director of Classworks Theatre, Cambridge) In 1942 Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl, was forced into hiding with seven others in a secret annexe in Amsterdam. Dreams of Anne Frank vividly brings her story to life in a poignant and highly charged drama. Using actors, movement and song Bernard Kops re-imagines and explores Anne Frank's hidden world, a world in which she lived, fell in love and dreamed of freedom. Dreams of Anne Frank won the 1993 Time Out award for best children's production and has been performed around the world. Commentary and notes by Bernard Kops

The life story of Anne Frank set chronologically against the significant events of the Holocaust, e.g. Kristallnacht, the Kindertransports and D-Day. Spanning Anne's short life from 1929 to 1945, and the early rise of Hitler to the liberation of the concentration camps, this highly moving account examines both the fate of the Frank family and the wider picture of the Holocaust. Photographs illustrate this engaging yet ultimately harrowing biography, together with short extracts from autobiographies, diaries and letters of other young people who had personal experience of the Holocaust, providing a contrast to Anne's life in hiding.

Holocaust Memory in American Passover Ritual

Passover is among the most widely observed holidays for American Jews. During this festival of redemption, Jewish families retell the biblical story of Exodus using a ritual book known as a haggadah, often weaving modern tales of oppression through the biblical narrative. References to the Holocaust are some of the most common additions to contemporary haggadot. However, the parallel between ancient and modern oppression, which seems obvious to some, raises troubling questions for many others. Is it possible to find any redemptive meaning in the Nazi genocide? Are we adding value to this unforgivable moment in history? Liora Gubkin critiques commemorations that violate memory by erasing the value of everyday life that was lost and collapse the diversity of responses both during the Shoah and afterward. She recounts oral testimonies from Holocaust survivors, cites references to the holiday in popular American culture, and analyzes examples of actual haggadot. Ultimately, Gubkin concludes that it is possible and important to make a space for Holocaust commemoration, all the time recognizing that haggadot must be constantly revisited and “performed.”

"Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl has been read by millions around the world and many of them have, since the house was opened as a museum in 1960, traveled to Amsterdam to see the building and the hiding place where Anne Frank wrote her diary." "Visitors to 263 Prinsengracht are taken on a journey back in time; in each of the rooms, excerpts from Anne's diary provide an impression of what happened there during the hiding period - and visitors can trace the lives of each of the inhabitants of the Secret Annex and the four employees of Anne's father, Otto Frank. This book takes readers on the same journey, following the same route that visitors make on the physical tour. The same excerpts from the diary that appear in the house are included - with the addition of background information by the museum directors and designers, the words of Anne's father, comments from some of the people who have been affected by Anne's words, and a comprehensive history of the publication of the diary." "The photographs compiled here are in black-and-white and in color; the reader experiences the house and its relics, and sees photos of Anne's family and their friends, as well as the people who helped them, and the changing Amsterdam neighborhood where they lived."--BOOK JACKET.

Found and Lost

A luminous memoir from the Holocaust writer, Alison Leslie Gold, told through a series of letters to the living and the dead. Alison Leslie Gold is best known for her works that have kept alive stories from the time of the Holocaust, stories of courage and survival - most famously her Anne Frank Remembered, co-authored with Miep Gies (who risked her life to protect the Frank family). She has never chosen to write about her own life or what made her into a gatherer of other people's stories, until now, in Found and Lost. Starting with her childhood experience of running her primary school 'Lost and Found' depot, Gold charts the origin of her need to save objects, stories, people - including herself - whom she has sensed to be on a road to perdition. After a series of deaths of people close to her (mother, lover, mentor, friend), she develops, though a series of letters, a meditation on aging, friendship, loss and the forces that link us to the dead. The letters tell of her early activism; her descent into alcoholism and subsequent recovery; and they tell of her discovery of the power of writing to give shape and meaning to a life. Found and Lost is both a tender memorial to the extraordinary people in her life, and a compelling tale of redemption.

Oculta con su familia, otra familia jud�a (los Van Pels) y un dentista (Dussel), en una buhardilla de unos almacenes de �msterdam durante la ocupaci�n nazi de Pa�ses Bajos, Ana Frank con trece a�os, cuenta en su diario, al que llam� �Kitty�, la vida del grupo. Ayudados por varios empleados de la oficina, permanecieron durante m�s de dos a�os en el achterhuis (conocido como �la casa de atr�s�) hasta que, finalmente, fueron delatados y detenidos. Ana escribi� un diario entre el 12 de junio de 1942 y el 1 de agosto de 1944. El 4 de agosto de 1944, unos vecinos (se desconocen los nombres) delatan a los ocho escondidos en "la casa de atr�s". Adem�s del Diario escribi� varios cuentos que han sido publicados paulatinamente desde 1960. Su hermana, Margot Frank tambi�n escribi� un diario, pero nunca se encontr� ning�n rastro de �ste.El 4 de agosto de 1944, una comisi�n de agentes de la Gestapo al mando del SS Oberscharf�hrer Karl Silberbauer detienen a todos los ocupantes y son llevados a diferentes campos de concentraci�n.Despu�s de permanecer durante un tiempo en los campos de concentraci�n de Westerbork en Pa�ses Bajos y Auschwitz en Polonia, Ana y su hermana mayor, Margot, fueron deportadas a Bergen-Belsen, donde ambas murieron durante una epidemia de tifus entre finales de febrero y mediados de marzo de 1945 (el tifus fue causado por la extrema falta de higiene en el campo de concentraci�n). Edith Holl�nder (madre de Margot y Ana) muere de inanici�n en el campo de concentraci�n de Auschwitz-Birkenau. Hermann Van Pels (uno de los ocho escondidos) fue enviado el 6 de septiembre de 1944 a las c�maras de gas de Auschwitz, donde muere semanas m�s tarde. Su esposa, Auguste Van Pels, muere a mediados de abril de 1945 en el campo de concentraci�n de Theresienstadt. Peter Van Pels muere el 5 de mayo de 1945, tres d�as antes de la liberaci�n. En cuanto a Fritz Pfeffer, muri� en el campo de concentraci�n de Neuengamme, el 20 de diciembre de 1944.Su padre, Otto Frank, fue el �nico de los escondidos que sobrevivi� a los campos de concentraci�n. Cuando regres� a �msterdam, Miep Gies, una de las personas que les hab�a ayudado durante su estancia en el anexo, le entreg� el diario contenido en cinco libros y un c�mulo de hojas sueltas que su hija hab�a escrito mientras estaban escondidos. En 1947 seg�n el deseo de Ana, su padre decide publicar el diario y, desde entonces, se ha convertido en uno de los libros m�s le�dos en todo el mundo.El libro fue todo un �xito en todo el mundo, en especial en Israel, Estados Unidos y Reino Unido, pa�s donde permaneci� como n.�1 en las listas de libros m�s vendidos durante 20 semanas consecutivas.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The twentieth anniversary edition of the classic story of an incredible group of students and the teacher who inspired them, featuring updates on the students’ lives, new journal entries, and an introduction by Erin Gruwell Now a public television documentary, Freedom Writers: Stories from the Heart In 1994, an idealistic first-year teacher in Long Beach, California, named Erin Gruwell confronted a room of “unteachable, at-risk” students. She had intercepted a note with an ugly racial caricature and angrily declared that this was precisely the sort of thing that led to the Holocaust. She was met by uncomprehending looks—none of her students had heard of one of the defining moments of the twentieth century. So she rebooted her entire curriculum, using treasured books such as Anne Frank’s diary as her guide to combat intolerance and misunderstanding. Her students began recording their thoughts and feelings in their own diaries, eventually dubbing themselves the “Freedom Writers.” Consisting of powerful entries from the students’ diaries and narrative text by Erin Gruwell, The Freedom Writers Diary is an unforgettable story of how hard work, courage, and determination changed the lives of a teacher and her students. In the two decades since its original publication, the book has sold more than one million copies and inspired a major motion picture Freedom Writers. And now, with this twentieth-anniversary edition, readers are brought up to date on the lives of the Freedom Writers, as they blend indispensable takes on social issues with uplifting stories of attending college—and watch their own children follow in their footsteps. The Freedom Writers Diary remains a vital read for anyone who believes in second chances.
