The Anne Frank You Never Knew

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join Professor Oren Stier on a multimedia journey into some of the surprising ways the image and persona of Anne Frank have survived the Shoah, leading her to becoming one of the most notable icons of the Holocaust. Utilizing rare photographs and other materials, Stier will reveal the "young girl" and teenage diarist you never knew. Drawn from Stier’s new book, Holocaust Icons: Symbolizing the Shoah in History and Memory, this presentation will provide insight into the life and afterlife of one of the Holocaust's most famous victims and, paradoxically, one of its most famous "survivors," as well.
