Join author Gillian Walnes Perry for this special Sunday Schmooze, with a timely screening of the groundbreaking, Academy Award winning documentary she commissioned, providing the first comprehensive portrait of the charming and free-spirited Anne Frank - perhaps the world's most famous Holocaust victim and gifted diarist.
Anne Frank Remembered
is a groundbreaking documentary inspired partly by the discovery of the only brief film footage of Anne Frank that exists.  Featuring the voices of Glenn Close and Kenneth Branagh, this Academy Award winning film combines photographs and previously undiscovered family letters, rare archival footage, along with insightful and moving interviews with people who knew the Franks best - most notably Miep Gies, who risked her own life to help shelter them. The film is particularly compelling today, given the rise of the far right and the alarming resurgence of anti-Semitism worldwide.  (USA, UK, Netherlands, 1995, 117 Mins., NR, English | Dir. Jon Blair)
In The Legacy of Anne Frank, Gillian Walnes Perry describes how education about Anne Frank has helped shape the lives of young people in some of the most violent and turbulent regions of the world over the past 30 years - an influenced such global icons as Nelson Mandela and Audrey Hepburn -  breaking down barriers of prejudice and suspicion.  She relates the story as an insider who worked closely with the subject matter for over 26 years and has had the privilege of spending time with many people who knew Anne and Otto Frank personally. 
Co- Founder of the Anne Frank Trust UK, Gillian Walnes Perry, MBE, was instrumental in the creation of Anne Frank Remembered, and was in attendance when it won the Academy Award in 1996.  She has lectured worldwide, from 10 Downing Street and the British Film Institute to the United Nations, and from Hong Kong to South Africa. Among other notables, she worked closely with Audrey Hepburn, one of the AF Trust's first patrons. In 2010 Gillian was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth for her educational accomplishments, and was invited to share her insights at the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama's Director of  Policy in April 2016
