Made the book come alive for the kids. "The people that hid the Franks were heroes!" "They were good role models." "It was neat that they made the movie in the real place they hid." "It's scary to think that this happened for real." Kids put "real" faces to the story they had learned in school.
A truly powerful story of courage and resilience based on the story of a real girl who lived a real life facing unbelievable hardships. Puts a face to a part of history, portraying the personal side of the victims of the Holocaust. Very powerful! Valuable title to view with young people ass it represents a significant part of world history. A complex dialogue regarding feelings of sadness, denial, guilt, social withdrawal, acceptance of loss, friendship and emotional growth that is touching and enlightening.
