    The diary of Anne Frank has sold more than 25 million copies. The house where she and her family stayed in hiding during WW II is now one of the biggest tourist draws in Amsterdam. Her life story has been adapted for stage and film countless times. Anne Frank's story is one of the most impressive accounts of WW II. Director Jon Blair, in conjunction with the Anne Frank Foundation, has made a documentary reconstruction of her life. He combined personal witness accounts, unpublished photographs, recently discovered letters and rare archive footage, including unique film footage of Anne Frank, to come to a remarkable 'eyewitness account'. In the revealing coda of the film we see how Anne's father sets out on a painful search for his wife and children at the end of the war. After his return to Holland Otto Frank devoted the rest of his life to spreading his daughter's message of tolerance and hope, and he continued his battle against racism, discrimination and anti-Semitism.
