Screening of the Film “No Asylum”
Please join us on July 16 at 2:00 p.m. for a free screening of the film, No Asylum: The Untold Chapter of Anne Frank's Story. A post-film discussion with the filmmaker, Paula Fouce, will follow the screening.
Anne Frank’s father, Otto’s recently discovered letters reveal new information about the family’s struggle to obtain visas to save themselves from the clutches of the Nazis. The world turned its back on the Franks and millions of others. Leonard Berney, who liberated Bergen Belsen where Anne and her sister Margot perished, relates the harrowing story. Something of a prequel to Anne's iconic diary, No Asylum shares unknown details of the Frank family's story before they went into hiding in the attic, and is a call to action for tolerance and respect.
If the world had helped the Franks: "Anne Frank could be a 87-year-old woman living in Boston today, a writer.” - Richard Breitman, Ph.D. - 2016
