February Events
“Anne Frank, The Girl That Never Was,” with Rolf Wolfswinkel
February 20, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
What if Anne Frank had survived World War II? She has become the face of the Holocaust, a cultural icon and a star of the screen and stage. But how much of that is hype and projection? Where is the girl she really was? In this lecture, Rolf Wolfswinkel will make the point that icons have to carry so much of the weight of all our dreams and desires that we lose sight of the person underneath all that baggage. Perhaps, the Anne Frank we all think we know is a girl that never existed. Wolfswinkel is professor of modern history in the Liberal Studies Program of New York University’s Faculty of Arts & Science. Tickets are $5 for HMH members and $8 for nonmembers. Seniors and students may pay $4 at the door. Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested. Visit http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to register online. Please note: online registration is not refundable.
