Please join our panelists, British-Japanese artist Simon Fujiwara, Alexandra Zapruder, Author of Salvaged Pages: Young Writers’ Diaries of the Holocaust and Guest Curator of And Still I Write: Young Diarists on War and Genocide at Holocaust Museum Houston, and Mary Lee Webeck, Holocaust and Genocide Education Endowed Chair at The Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Studies at the Holocaust Museum Houston, as they discuss the practice and pitfalls of popularizing history for a younger generation, and what is gained and altered in the translation. Looking across Hope House at the Blaffer, the place of Anne Frank at the Holocaust Museum Houston, and the 2002 book Salvaged Pages: Young Writers Diaries of the Holocaust, they will discuss how the Anne Frank story has been re-formatted over the decades, and how the new questions circulate within history and the museum setting.
