Anne Frank’s story is presented in her voice, but with the supporting characters in her story played by a multi-ethnic group that includes survivors of the Armenian genocide in 1915, the Bosnian civil war of the 1990s, and the ethnic cleansing in Rwanda.

Together, they emphasize that Anne Frank’s family was one of many families throughout history who suffered the ignorance and hatred of mobs. In each case, these survivors got through their ordeals by embracing Anne’s philosophy of “thinking themselves out” of their situation, celebrating her resilience and her refusal to give in to the same hatred that caused her people grief.

This powerful production is designed to give educators a tool to discuss the many faces of genocide, and to help you show how easily the flames of ethnic hatred can spread until they’re beyond control.

Because of the subject, this is recommended for audiences 5th grade and up only.
