The Paley Museum, 25 West 52 Street, NYC

On the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Diary of Anne Frank, the Paley Center brings together actors, creators, and historians who have worked to adapt her moving story to television, film, and theater. The panel will talk about the rewards and challenges of dramatizing this iconic figure, and the influence it has had on their lives, as well as the timeless impact of Anne Frank’s story. Why does Anne Frank’s story always remain relevant? Why is it important to keep this story alive for new generations, using different platforms to reach different audiences?

This program is made possible by generous support from Shari Redstone, Aryeh and Elana Bourkoff.
