    Letters from Anne and Martin

    Letters from Anne and Martin is a unique production that combines the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King, Jr. Developed from excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank and Dr. King's Letters 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.

    Letters from Anne and Martin was first developed for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration at the Anne Frank Center USA in 2013. It has since been performed at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, at the South Carolina Society for Social Studies Annual Conference, Battery Park City School, Union Vale Middle School and for an MLK Day celebration event sponsored by Congregation Tifereth Israel and Calvary Baptist Church.

    Produced by The Anne Frank Center USA
    Script Developed by Hannah Vaughn

A la Mémoire des Enfants Déportés - Calligraphic paintings by Eleanor Winters

In memory of the children of Paris, deported to Auschwitz, 1942-1944

Between 1942 and 1944, more than 70,000 French Jews were sent to the Nazi death camps; fewer than 2,500 survived.Among those deported from France were 11,400 children; this number included more than 6,000 Parisian children, the vast majority of whom never returned. Following the Liberation of Paris, plaques appeared throughout the city commemorating the heroes and victims of World War II.

There are currently more than 1,000 such plaques in Paris, all of which are very moving, and cause Parisians and visitors alike to pause, at least momentarily.

This ongoing series of works on watercolor paper features layers of paint and ink, and a method of writing and re-writing the texts in a variety of styles, ranging from traditional calligraphy to more expressive gestural lettering.The 21 paintings on view at The Anne Frank Center USA in Tribeca, utilize media including gouache, acrylic paint, watercolor and ink on watercolor paper.
