Docudrama 'Anne Frank: Then and Now' brings the story to Palestinian teens 11.11.2016 LA Times: Commentary

“Anne Frank: Then and Now” may be an oddly structured little docudrama but it makes the most of its eerily cogent message: The words of the famed World War II diarist are as timely today as when first penned by the Jewish teenager while she hid from German occupiers.

Israeli troops participate in an urban warfare training exercise, November 26, 2015. With its latest promise of military aid, the United States has essentially sanctioned Israel's impunity, its endless colonization of Palestinian land, its military occupation of the West Bank, and its periodic attacks by F-16 fighter jets and Apache helicopters using Hellfire missiles on the civilians of Gaza.
