On April 11, Holocaust Remembrance Day, PBS will be airing a new docu-drama, the "most accurate-ever adaptation of one of the world's most widely read memoirs," based on The Diary of Anne Frank.

PBS is partnering with the Great Books Foundation and Facing History & Ourselves to promote both the film and educational resources/opportunities including:

  • a teacher's guide written in partnership with Facing History and Ourselves
  • discussion guide for book and film clubs
  • an omnibus Resources Guide pulling together the best materials that explore Anne Frank, her context, and relevance today
  • an "open call" to the general public for 3min video diary submissions - winners' work to air at the end of the broadcast
  • a live Twitter event during the April 11th broadcast
  • online features at PBS.org/Masterpiece including a Q&A with Anne Frank's living first cousin, Buddy Elias and an interview with Francine Prose, author of Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife
