February 2021: So You Think You Know Anne Frank?

On February 23, 2021, the Holocaust Resource Center of Kean University hosted a workshop by Dr. Samantha Mitschke on theatre adaptations of Anne Frank’s diary.

Participants looked at four different stage adaptations, and how they can be used in class to encourage students to think about Anne, and her story, in new ways. Participants explored scenes from the plays; suggestions for classroom exercises and activities; and discussion topics to engage students with both the diary and its wider context.
