About The Show

安妮·弗兰克(Anne Frank)是德籍犹太人。她留下来的日记使她名闻遐迩。15岁死于贝尔根─贝尔森集中营,她的日记成为二次大战期间纳粹消灭犹太人的最佳见证,日记中展现了惊人的勇气与毅力。

  安妮出生于德国的法兰克福,是奥图法兰克(Otto Frank)一家的小女儿,家中还有母亲艾迪斯(Edith Frank)姐姐玛格特(Margot Frank)。由于当时纳粹德国排饬犹太人风气日盛。父亲奥图便放弃于德国的事业而将家庭移至荷兰阿姆斯特丹。一家过著较为平顺的生活;但是1940年5月后,荷兰为德国攻占之后,荷兰的新统治者英夸特也将排犹法律于荷兰执行,1941年夏天安妮姐妹也因此转入犹太人学校就读。这段期间安妮开始写日记。



  她的事迹后来被拍成电影--《The Diary of Anne Frank》(安妮日记)

In Protected content , in order to avoid arrest and deportation by the occupying Nazis, the Jewish Frank family, Ann, her parents, Otto and Edith, and her older sister, Margo, went into hiding in a secret annex above Otto's office in Amsterdam. Anne had recently been given a diary for her thirteenth birthday. For the 25 months that the Franks lived in the annex with four other desperate Jews, the introspective and talented Anne kept her diary. Tragically, they were all discovered by the Nazis and deported to the Nazi death camps where all but Anne's father, Otto, perished during the waning days of the Third Reich. Returning to Amsterdam after the Nazis were defeated, Frank was given the diary which had been retrieved by a Dutch friend who had been instrumental in helping the Franks to hide.

In Protected content , a new adaptation of the story by playwright Wendy Kesselmen featured a young Natalie Portman in her first starring role and was commended for its heightened realism and power. This adaptation incorporated newly available information on Anne, previously withheld from even the Diary publication and is the version which Butterfly Effect is presenting in early December.

Thirteen actors share the intimate stage space in this powerful and authentic portrait of a young girl clinging to hope in a time of tragedy.
