As one of the most important documents of recent German history, the diary of Anne Frank has been adapted for TV and cinema many times. Surprisingly, there has never been a German version for the big screen – until now. The Diary of Anne Frank tells the true story of a Jewish girl, who went into hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam. Young Anne recorded her life trapped within the confines of her hideout in her diary, describing her desire for normalcy and the fear of being discovered. The film provides a faithful depiction of the original diary, creating a detailed picture of Anne’s fate and showing, through her insights and expressions, that she was not so different to any other teenage girl.

Keen to portray a German perspective, award-winning director Hans Steinbichler, distinguishes The Diary of Anne Frank from past adaptations as a “new approach for a new generation”, portraying the idea of Anne without exaggeration.
