Millions of people know the Diary of Anne Frank. The Jewish girl, who fled with her family to Amsterdam after Hitler seized power, had to hide there from the Nazis since July 1942. For 761 days, Anne and her parents, her sister Margot, the van Pels family and the dentist Dr. Pfeffer lived in a hiding place in the secret annex of her father’s company. In her diary, she wrote about her experience, about the conflicts in the cramped flat, about her feelings for Peter van Pels three years her senior, about her fears, her wishes and her dreams. At one point, Anne, who would have loved to become a journalist or a writer, wrote: “I want to live on even after my death”. On 4 August 1944, the eight people in hiding were betrayed and deported. Anne died in March 1945 in the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen. She was 15 years old. The docudrama depicts the girl’s experience in staged film scenes and couples Anne’s thoughts about her time with historical footage. In addition, there are interviews with Anne’s school friends and other witnesses of this time period.


"Meine Tochter Anne Frank ist ein eindringlicher, aber kein sentimentaler Film." (René Martens, , René Martens
