During this live telechat, Ruth Folit and Dr. Beth Jacobs will discuss the original inspiration for the creation of “Paper Sky: What Happened After Anne Frank’s Diary Ended” and the process of researching and writing the book. Dr. Jacobs, also the author of "Writing for Emotional Balance," uses her background as a writer, psychologist and journaling expert to inform her depiction of Anne Frank's experiences. Dr. Jacobs will read excerpts from the novella.
As popular as Anne Frank’s diary and story are, few people are aware of what happened after the last entry in the "secret annex" where she and her family hid from the Nazis. From their hiding place, the Frank family journeyed to Westerbork Transit Camp and then were on the last train from Westerbork to Auschwitz, before they were separated. Anne and her sister, Margot, ended up at Bergen-Belsen, where they barely lost the race against time and died shortly before the end of the war. The story is filtered through imagining Anne's voice as both a writer and as a traumatized young woman in the Holocaust.
The sad and realistic rendition of this last chapter of Anne Frank's life will be discussed live next Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 5:00 PM Eastern/2:00 PM Pacific through the IAJW.org website.
