How were Nelson Mandela and Audrey Hepburn’s lives influenced by Anne Frank’s diary?
Meet Gillian Walnes Perry MBE, author of ‘The Legacy of Anne Frank’ and someone who has met many people who knew Anne Frank personally and have shared their insights with her.
Gillian explores the Anne Frank story through a new lens – that of how learning how a Jewish girl’s experiences in the Holocaust has had a redemptive and healing effect in some of the world’s most turbulent and violent regions in recent years.
Gillian is the Co-founder and Honorary Vice President of the Anne Frank Trust UK. She has been speaking, lecturing and broadcasting in locations such as 10 Downing Street, the United Nations in New York, and most recently, the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock.
