A LETTER BY Simon WIESENTHAL
I’ve now considered the English model of your movie based mostly on the Diary of Anne frank. Thanks for sending me the tape.
I need to admit that initially had my doubts whether or not an animated movie might do justice to Anne Frank’s Diary.

This depiction of the rising up of a vivacious younger woman in very tough and very threatening environment will contact the hearts of younger viewers–and will hopefully cause them to be cautious of all indicators of collective hatred, racism and anti-Semitism. It’s good that with such well-done animated movie extra younger folks may be reached than could be the case with the ebook alone.

Complemented by leading edge animation, the movie’s most important success is its means to make use of the diary entries to create an Anne Frank who’s compelling and endearing with out being maudlin. ”
