“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.” – Anne Frank | Tuesday, 4 April, 1944
Join us for two very special virtual events in honor of Anne Frank’s 92nd birthday:
Anita was born in 1936 in Emmen, a small town in northern Holland. The Nazis invaded the Netherlands in 1940, and Anita and her four siblings were eventually sent into hiding. After arriving in the United States in 1952, Anita went on to receive an MA from Harvard in Russian Studies and a PhD in Human Development. She joined the JFCS William J. Lowenberg Speakers Bureau in 2019 and has since inspired thousands of students, teachers, and community members.
Presented in partnership with the JFCS Holocaust Center William J. Lowenberg Speaker’s Bureau.
Come join us on a virtual tour of the Secret Annex in the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam to examine the extraordinary life of Anne Frank and how her legacy continues to inspire young people today. Led by educators from the Anne Frank House, this webinar will leave plenty of time for Q&A.
Prior to the virtual tour please view the powerful documentary, The Short Life of Anne Frank (including language selection), to prepare for the webinar.
Presented in partnership with the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam.
