The Diary of Anne Frank is based on the real life diary written by Anne Frank, one of the most well known holocaust victims of World War II, and the story of Anne, her family and friends has become a classic of modern world literature. This 1999 revised play and Tony Award winner by Wendy Kesselman has won rave reviews as one of the most realistic portrayed dramas depicting the life of the Frank family.
The Frank family moved from Germany to Amsterdam in 1933, the year the Nazis gained control over Germany. By the beginning of 1940, they were trapped in Amsterdam by the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. As persecutions of the Jewish population increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in the hidden rooms of Anne's father, Otto Frank's, office building. After two years, the group was betrayed and transported to the concentration camps.Otto Frank, the only survivor of the family, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that Anne's diary had been saved, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947.
