In 1946, Dutch historian Dr. Jan Romein said "This apparently inconsequential diary by a child, this "de profundis" stammered out in a child's voice, embodies all the hideousness of fascism, more so than all the evidence of Nuremberg put together." Her chronicle of 25 months spent in hiding during the Holocaust has moved readers and audiences alike, not just because of her beautiful prose and compelling story but because of her passionate hope for a better tomorrow.
LITERATURE LIVE! brings the power of the word from the page to the stage. Using curriculum-based literature, Bay Street Theatre creates a unique learning experience by bringing professional theatre artists together to present first class productions. The possibilities for insight and understanding of the subject matter are only increased when students can witness the characters from a great play or novel living and breathing and telling their stories right before their eyes.
