Anne Frank was an amazing storyteller. Through her words, she has engaged and inspired youth to document their thoughts on self-expression, tolerance, and being. Today, The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most widely read pieces of non-fiction in the world. MASTERPIECE, PBS, and The WGBH Lab invite you, the next generation of independent media makers and storytellers ages 13 and up to create your own diary online, using video, audio or still images.
By writing in her diary, Anne Frank was empowered to express her thoughts and feelings about what was happening all around her. We're challenging you to do the same. Tell us about your life. How have you overcome being bullied or disrespected for the way you look, the way you think, or for what you believe? How did you handle it? Send us a compelling message in a 3 min. video diary entry about how you, or someone you know, has made a difference.
