Whose Anne Frank? Representations of a young girl, Birmingham

  • Additional CPD workshop

Monday 1 April 2019


The diary of Anne Frank is often used as a ‘way in’ to studying the Holocaust. Anne is also an iconic figure in popular culture; interpreted and reinterpreted, in a range of media from plays, films and TV through to Japanese cartoon books.

To mark the anniversary of Anne Frank’s death in March 1945, the Centre for Holocaust Education is launching our new additional CPD workshop, Whose Anne Frank? Representations of a young girl? on Monday 6 November.

This workshop, specifically designed for English teachers, but open to any teach interested, uses Critical Discourse Analysis to explore several of these representations and to highlight the tensions that exist between the popular ideas about Anne Frank and what she actually wrote. This reveals a more nuanced and profound writer who still has the power to shock some people.
