Echoes & Reflections: Eva's Promise: Teaching Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl Through Her Childhood Friend

Event details
Calendar   Workshops
Location Online via Zoom
Date Tue, Jun 11, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Duration   1h

Commemorate Anne Frank's 95th birthday with a discussion of Eva's Promise, a new documentary about Anne's childhood friend and posthumous stepsister. Join producer Susan Kerner to learn the story of Eva Geiringer Schloss and her promise to retrieve her brother Heinz's hidden artwork. Explore the film as a supplement to teaching The Diary of a Young Girl through the parallel lives of hiding, arrest, and deportation to Auschwitz in August 1944. Eva's Promise builds historical understanding and introduces a new perspective on the Diary. By introducing the part of Anne’s story she sadly didn’t live to tell, the film fosters empathy and creates context for teaching the human story of the Holocaust. Registrants will be provided access to the film one week before the webinar.
