The Diary Of Anne Frank (Das Tagebuch der Anne Frank)

The Diary Of Anne Frank

“This must be the best Anne Frank adaptation we’ve ever seen.” — Forward

With the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, the situation for Anne and her family grows dire. To avoid deportation, the family hides in a secret annexe in the rear of a house in Amsterdam—a claustrophobic existence combining everyday routine with imminent danger. Between birthday parties, bomb scares and the fear of being discovered, the young Anne records her daily life in her diary, where she details her fears and desires as she comes of age behind locked doors. Her clever observations and insightful descriptions have helped generations of young people picture the horrors of the Nazi persecution of the Jews. Based on the uncensored original diary and with a star-studded cast, this film, which premiered at Berlin Film Festival, introduces Anne’s story to a new generation.
