Pre-Information for Teachers

Told through the eyes of Sarah Weis, a fictional ‘best friend’ of Anne Frank, this multi-media stage experience brings the reality of the Holocaust into focus for young audiences. Recommended for fifth-grade students through to adults, this show is a poignant, meaningful way to remember the atrocities of the past, in hopes that they may never be repeated again.
