Learn about the short life of Anne Frank, a young German Jew whose light was put out in a Nazi death camp. Appearing on Tuesday, April 30 at 7 pm.

    Sheryl Faye who portrayed Helen Keller and Eleanor Roosevelt returns as Anne  Frank.

     

    Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt Germany on June 12, 1929. She lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, having moved there with her family at the age of four-and-a-half when the Nazis gained control over Germany. By May 1940, the Franks were trapped in Amsterdam by the German occupation of the Netherlands. As the hatred for Jewish people increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in some concealed rooms behind a bookcase in the building where Anne’s father worked. From then until the family’s arrest by the Gestapo in August 1944, Anne kept a diary she had received as a birthday present, and wrote in it regularly. Our story starts on July 6, 1942 in the secret Annex and gives you a taste of what life was like for her. In this world where there is a lot of hate this a wonderful program about Perseverance, Hope, and Love leaving us all with a stronger message.
