Duration   1h

The Diary of Anne Frank, which debuted on Broadway in 1955 and then later toured the country, was one of the most influential plays of the 20th century. The play introduced millions of Americans to the Holocaust and its victims. But what did reenacting Anne’s story mean to the people who created and acted in the play or the 1959 film? How did dramatizing her life affect their lives and careers? Who were they?

On Monday, March 13, the Holocaust Resource Center of Kean University will host a virtual conversation about "Playing Anne Frank," a new podcast series from the Forward. Executive editor Adam Langer and Shana Stein, Holocaust educator, will discuss the backstory of the award-winning play and film, The Diary of Anne Frank, and how this iconic work shapes those involved in performing it — including surviving cast and crew members, and high school students putting the show on today.
