Letters From Anne and Martin

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 5:30pm

Temple Sinai Jewish History Center presents an evening in two parts.

I. Letters from Anne and Martin, A Theatrical Performance,
Thursday, January 23rd at 5:30pm

This unique production combines the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom were born in 1929 yet seemingly represent drastically different times and cultures. Developed from excerpts from Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and Dr. King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” this piece evokes the important messages from these legendary figures, as they write of their hopes and plans for a peaceful and unified world. This is currently the most-requested theatrical performance from the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, as it touches both students and adults of various backgrounds and demonstrates the universality of the human experience.

II. Anne Frank: A Private Photo Album, Exhibit Opening Reception, Thursday, January 23rd following the theatrical performance of Letters from Anne and Martin.

On display in the Ackerman Exhibition Hall will be more than 70 rarely seen photographs compiled from the Frank family albums. Anne Frank: Private Photo Album is a traveling exhibit which emanates from the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect.

Temple Sinai Jewish History Center
