Helpers, Heroes, and Liberators

Programs Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the
End of the Second World War in Europe – Fall 2015

All commemorative events are free for Holocaust survivors and veterans

“Reality is not simply there, it must be searched and won,” wrote the German poet Paul Celan. In Spring 2015, The Anne Frank Center USA commemorated the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe, celebrating the liberation of the Nazi death camps, while also confronting the fact that history had been forever altered in devastating ways. This fall, we will reflect on – and search for - this new reality, addressing themes of return, remembrance, and restitution. In addition to our special exhibition, The Helpers of the Secret Annex, which is on view through December 2015, we will host programs exploring a range of topics, including the impact of war on children; the segregation and internment of US citizens during this turbulent period; and the enduring legacy of Anne Frank – from the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl to the hit Broadway play.

Even though the inmates had added an extra row of stars, Colonel Richard Seibel had the flag flown over the camp as a tribute to the humanity, perseverance, and spirit of the survivors of Mauthausen.

Join us for a special event in honor of the Liberation of Mauthausen with Susan Goldman Rubin, author of The Flag with Fifty-Six Stars: A Gift from the Survivors of Mauthausen.

They were among the most heroic fighter pilots of World War II. The courageous and daring U.S. Red Tail squadrons destroyed 112 German planes in the air, another 150 on the ground, as well as hundreds of trains and trucks, and even a ship. While their bravery was the stuff of legends – and their devotion to their ¬country unquestionable – there was no heroes’ return for them after the war, because the pilots, more than 400 of them, were black. Recruited in Tuskegee, Alabama, they were organized into segregated squadrons by the U.S. Air Force. As part of this special program honoring the Tuskegee Airmen, we welcome former pilots and their families to speak about their experiences, and will host a screening of George Lucas’ 2011 documentary about the squadron, Double Victory.

students FREE

Space limited. Reservations recommended.

212-431-7993 or email info@annefrank.com

Set in 1943 against the backdrop of World War II, Secrets of War tells a story of youth thrust into an all-too-adult world, where the loyalties and betrayals of childhood have stakes higher than anyone could imagine. Conflict rages across Europe and the Nazis have occupied the Netherlands, but for twelve-year-old best friends Tuur and Lambert, not much seems to have changed: they still go to school each day, and still play “War” with their wooden guns in the forest and underground caves just outside their small village. But the realities of the conflict soon intrude on their familiar world, and jealousy sets in motion a series of events that will alter all three children’s lives. Both a gripping wartime drama and an affecting coming-of-age story, the film is a bittersweet ode to innocence lost.

A Q&A with Liselotte Pelle from Young Crowds, who produce educational materials for the film, and for the Anne Frank House, will follow the screening.

Suggested age: 10 and up.
