The Story

Hiding in an Amsterdam attic with her family and others, a young Jewish girl writes in her diary of her hopes, aspirations and observations of life under Nazi occupation. Caught up in a world of hate she couldn’t comprehend, Anne Frank grows as a young woman, ready for life and love just at the moment her dreams come to an end. Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-honored, this classic drama is a reminder that hope, courage and love can survive in even the darkest places and times.
