Anne Frank Remembered, a powerful and poignant British documentary by Jon Blair, focuses on the short life and far-reaching legacy of Anne Frank, the 15-year-old Jewish girl whose voice still echoes down the corridors of time.
Her diary covering the time spent hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam has sold over 25 million copies since it was first published in 1947. As Blair shows in this film, it helps us remember the nightmare of the Holocaust and the heroism of those who supported the Jews during the Nazi persecution.
Using testimonies from those who knew Anne Frank, from her childhood friends in Amsterdam to those who were the last to see her alive at Bergen-Belsen in 1945, the filmmaker pays tribute to her heroic spirit which stands for all the Jewish youth and children who were never allowed to grow up and savor the fullness of life.
This film is destined to become a treasured resource for schools, synagogues, and churches.
