"The Diary of Anne Frank" tells the true story of two Jewish families in Amsterdam, hiding from the Nazis during World War Two. Anne's diary is one of the most widely read books ever and has now been translated into over 70 languages. Kesselman's recent adaptation of the Diary was hailed by The New York Times: "Undeniably moving. It shatters the heart," and Time Magazine raved: "One of the year's ten best." Anne's chronicle of her time in hiding is a testament to the human spirit.
