More than one million Jewish children were killed during the Holocaust and countless others survived. Some, like Anne Frank, kept diaries in which they confided their hopes, fears, and experiences. Join us on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, for a special virtual reading of excerpts from these diaries. Narrated by Liev Schreiber, the excerpts will be read by young actors and public figures including Mandy Gonzalez, Daniel Kahn, Adam Kantor, Stephanie Lynn Mason, Abby Stein, and Danny Strong.

By giving voice to the written words of some of the Nazis’ youngest victims, we will commemorate their suffering and learn from their courageous and resilient spirits.
