New SUWC member Jennie Bernheim is encouraging us to see the performance of The Diary of Anne Frank at the Menlo School February 10-12. In this time of extraordinary change in our country, consider taking the time to call a friend and see this poignant production together.
For those not familiar, The Diary of Anne Frank is a stage adaptation of the extraordinary writings of young Anne Frank, detailing life-in-hiding under Nazi terror in World War II. Anne’s diary lent a voice to the fight for human dignity and this adaptation brings to life one of the most important people of the 20th century, whose message is especially relevant today.
