A step back in time to Anne Frank’s hiding place


To experience the intense claustrophobia in which Anne Frank's family lived while hiding from the Nazis, just go to the Celebration of Books at American Jewish University this Sunday. No, not just because of the swarming crowds that will no doubt be filling the university's halls, hoping to meet the many celebrity authors. You really can relive the Franks' experience in a life-sized recreation of the two-room space in Amsterdam in which Anne, along with her parents, older sister and Fritz Pfeffer, a dentist and acquaintance of the Franks, lived from 1942-1944.
