Anne Frank's Diary and its Legacy (FYS)
Fall 2023
Section: 01  

Since its publication, "The Diary of Anne Frank" has become one of the bestselling non-fiction books of all time. Moreover, it has inspired numerous adaptations in different forms: films, stage plays, TV series, graphic novels and more. In this course, we will closely read the original diary, and engage with various incarnations, asking: Why did the world iconize Anne Frank, and is it a lionization or an appropriation? What does this global phenomenon tell us about the legacy of the Holocaust and of that of Anne Frank, and, finally, what does Anne Frank's diary tell us about the world?
