About

Anne Frank was a young girl who has touched many lives by her personal writings about the Holocaust. She recorded her fears, hopes, and experiences in her diary that she named kitty. She shares her personal stories while in hiding of the Holocaust and what she and her family had to endure. She never gave up and always wanted to strive for more and understand human nature and complexity. 

With all that she went through, Anne Frank showed her strength in God and her love to live.  Even though she was bound by her situation, her relationship with God deepened and she did not cease to believe in the goodness of the universe. Her words portrayed her remarkable strong spirits that were unwilling to succumb to the face of cruelty. She is not only a symbol of courage and youth but also of faith and optimism.  Her dream was to go on “living even after my death”.
