“With the rising increase in anti-Semitism in this area, we felt an urgency to bring this story to local audiences, especially students”, remarked Ian Mairs, Managing Director.
The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th century. The memoirs of this young Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of human history. Every generation encounters the text and has the same reaction. In the face of such inhumanity, the human spirit still perseveres.
