Look how far we’ve come! In September 2012 the original dramatic adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank, a radio play, will be heard worldwide for the first time in 60 years as a podcast. This sensitive piece of drama fell into obscurity after airing nationwide on CBS Radio in 1952. A controversial debate surrounded the “Jewish” content in the play. At the time, Anne’s father, Otto Frank, asked only that Anne’s words prevail in any adaptation, but he was influenced by power, commerce, and the promise of obtaining “a greater good” by softening the blow of Anne’s tragic reality. Author Meyer Levin’s emerging Broadway play was sacked in favor of a more whitewashed version 5 years later. The 21st Century has brought about a greater appreciation of cultural diversity and with it the invaluable understanding of ethnic and racial independence. Meyer Levin called it Freedom of Identity and created a relevant Anne Frank in doing so.
