DescriptionOn her thirteenth birthday, Anne Frank receives a diary as a gift. Just weeks later her family enters into hiding in Amsterdam. For more than two years, Anne carefully records her thoughts, feelings and observations in her now-iconic diary, one of the most widely read books in the world today. Through photographs, narratives and artefacts, Anne Frank: A History for Today illuminates the effect of National Socialism on one Jewish family, and explores the legacy of this history for all Canadians.
