The message of this film, in my mind, is the same as Otto Frank's. Otto was adamant that Anne's diary had a universal message. He felt that it should not just be specific to the Jewish experience of the Holocaust. There are many who feel that the Holocaust was a uniquely Jewish experience and that Anne's story should be about the genocide of the Jews specifically. I don't agree. From my own lifetime, I've seen genocide and I've seen what happens when nations even turn against themselves and I have firmly hooked my flag to Otto's universalist message. He wanted to perpetuate her writings for those reasons and I'm more than comfortable, happy in fact, to be a small part of that.
