Dear Parents/ Guardians:
Please be advised that 8th graders at YMS will once again be studying the unit “Anne Frank” in their Language Arts classes. Please be aware that this Holocaust drama, while not explicitly violent, explores some mature themes about WWII, captivity, self- preservation, religious persecution and perseverance. Although many students have already heard about Anne Frank by the time they reach middle school, the video based on her diary and account of survivors, includes some tense and potentially frightening scenes of what life was like for Jews in hiding. There is a general sense of foreboding as the Franks and their friends await the inevitable capture. Although the issue of sexuality is insignificant, Anne and Peter do flirt, share a few stolen kisses etc. A preview video with an anticipation guide helps students come to grips with the time period and the restrictions placed on Jews prior to being sent to concentration camps. The drama presentation will be read in class, which will highlight the daily adventures and will lead to the eventual capture and deportation. A second part of this video will show what life was like in the concentration camps and tracks the ultimate demise of the characters and the miraculous survival of the patriarch, Otto Frank. Graphic scenes of gas chambers, crematoriums, disease and starvation are utilized to show how Anne remained a beacon of hope, an eternal optimist amidst the horrifying conditions.
If you wish for your child to not view this video that outlines life and death in these concentration camps, please return this form and let his/her Language Arts teacher know to provide an alternate assignment in the media center when those clips are shown. Please only return this form if you wish for your student to NOT participate.
Please note: The Anne Frank Project is due on Friday, February 16, 2018. This is a 40% grade.
I do NOT give permission for my student to watch the Anne Frank movie.
