During the darkest days of the Nazi holocaust, two Jewish families live hidden in a secret attic in Amsterdam. There, teenage Anne records her innermost thoughts, fears and longings in her diary. Over the course of two years, she documents the group’s day-to-day survival under constant threat of capture. She writes with intelligence, wit and candor of her relationships with her fellow fugitives; her first love; her ideals and aspirations; her reflections on good and evil; and her fragile hopes for the future. The Diary of Anne Frank is a true, firsthand account of coming of age in an age of terror. Anne’s voice resonates just as powerfully today as when her diary first was published 70 years ago, and her luminous spirit still shines in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
