Why Anne Frank Still Matters: Obermann Conversation
For several generations, Anne Frank has been a household name—the WWII diarist whose posthumously published book has been translated into more than 70 languages. But do younger generations know her story? When they encounter her, what resonates with them?

In this conversation, we’ll consider Anne’s legacy and the ways her experience as a refugee, a person in hiding, an advocate for human rights, and a joyful creative spirit can speak to new generations.

Speakers will include:

Kirsten Kumpf Baele, Department of German (CLAS)
Mallory Hellman, Director, Iowa Youth Writing Project
Rabbi Esther Hugenholtz, Agudas Achim Synagogue

Free and open to all.

This event is co-sponsored by the Iowa City Public Library and the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies.
