A unique educational resource

In 1952, Anne Frank’s diary was introduced to the world in dramatic form for the first time as a radio play by author Meyer Levin. Levin’s dramatization reflected his conviction that it was Anne Frank’s voice, one Jew out of millions who perished, that could reach Americans with the fate of the Jews of Europe in WWII, a view ahead of its time in an era that embraced assimilation and the minimizing of minority identities. Only months after the broadcast, both Levin’s radio play and his full-length stage play had been shelved, and they languished in obscurity for nearly 60 years.

More Relevant Than Ever

In 2009, producer Jennifer Strome resurrected the radio play and has worked to make it available as an educational and community resource that addresses contemporary questions about identity, multiculturalism, and tolerance through an engaging dramatic medium.

Now Available for the Classroom

Limited Use – North America Only – 2013-2015

Use of the radio play is currently restricted to North America and is available for a limited time only.
