Dir. Hans Steinbichler
28th March | 06:30 PM
Synopsis: Amsterdam, the year 1942. The Franks, a German-Jewish family, receive notice of their imminent deportation to a Nazi “labour camp”. In order to protect themselves, the family pretends to flee to Switzerland and moves to a hidden apartment in a rear building located on Prinsengracht 263. Month upon month, they spend there, isolated from the outside world. Despite the circumstances, 13-year old Anne tries to lead a normal life. She reads a lot and begins to write on her own. In her diary, she chronicles the two years of concealment and the not always harmonious everyday life in the hideout with great perception and subtle humour, while also venting her fears and sorrows. In August 1944, the family is betrayed and arrested. Anne Frank dies at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945.
