Museum of Jewish Heritage

“How has Anne Frank’s Diary been portrayed in popular culture?” “How did other adolescents express themselves during the Holocaust? and “When and how should we introduce the topic of the Holocaust to students? were the questions posed in the “Anne Frank Reconsidered” symposium at the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust recently.

Over 100 educators attended the event which examined the uses and misuses of Anne Frank’s Diary in Holocaust education and popular culture.

Featured speakers included Fanya Gottesfeld Heller, a Holocaust survivor and author of Strange and Unexpected Love: A Teenage Girl’s Holocaust Memoirs; Dr. Lawrence Langer, Professor Emeritus of English, Simmons College, and author of Admitting the Holocaust; Alexandra Zapruder, author of Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust; and Dr. Jeffrey Shandler, Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University and the author of While America Watches: Televising the Holocaust. A group discussion on the theory and practice of Holocaust education concluded the symposium.
