SOLD OUT: Anne Frank, Schindler’s List & The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Tour
Anne Frank (June 12, 1929 - February or March 1945) was a German-born diarist. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl, in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is one of the world's most widely known books and has been the basis for several plays and films. Schindler's List is a 1993 American epic historical period drama film directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg. It is based on the novel Schindler's Ark by Australian novelist Thomas Keneally. The film follows Oskar Schindler, a Sudeten German businessman, who saved the lives of more than a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees from the Holocaust by employing them in his factories during World War II. It stars Liam Neeson as Schindler, Ralph Fiennes as SS officer Amon Göth, and Ben Kingsley as Schindler's Jewish accountant Itzhak Stern. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) is the United States' official memorial to the Holocaust. Adjacent to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the USHMM provides for the documentation, study, and interpretation of Holocaust history. It is dedicated to helping leaders and citizens of the world confront hatred, prevent genocide, promote human dignity, and strengthen democracy Since its dedication on April 22, 1993, the Museum has had nearly 40 million visitors, including more than 10 million school children. The Museum's visitors came from all over the world, and less than 10 percent of the Museum's visitors are Jewish. For this program we’ll be taking a guided tour of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Our emphasis will be on the museum’s permanent exhibit, which we’ll be seeing particularly as it relates to the stories of Anne Frank and Oskar Schindler (a 25th anniversary edition of Schindler’s List is being re-released in theaters nationwide on December 7). We’ll also discuss the how the museum’s specific architecture relates to the Holocaust. After our tour you are welcome to join us for a lunch/discussion in the museum café. Your host for this program is Robert Kelleman, the founder of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture. __________________________________________________ Registration: $8.00 per person with proceeds supporting our Washington, DC History & Culture non-profit community programs.
