Anne Frank (12 June 1929 - early March 1945) is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Her diary has been the basis for several plays and films. It documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands during World War II.
The performace „The Voice of Anne Frank" touches the woes and delights of a thirteen year old girl. The girl is forced into hiding in a back tract of a house. However in the voice of the diary it is not only Anne talking but all the problems of the hiding people - those who survived and those who didn't.
