“Tree of Hope–Anne Frank’s Father Shares His Wisdom

With an American Teen and the World”

Monday, August 15, 2022 – 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Southridge Recreation Center, Upstairs Auditorium

Author and motivational speaker, Cara Wilson-Granat shares uplifting lessons gleaned from a 20-year correspondence with Anne Frank’s father.

This PowerPoint program is a historical re-cap of Anne Frank and her family, in particular her father, Otto Frank, and how this legendary Holocaust survivor–who believed in the power of love over hate–transformed an entire “family” of young people who reached out to him, including Cara.

Some of Cara’s letters from Otto Frank were used by investigators from Cold Case. 60 Minutes showcased examples of various Cold Case scenarios that determined who most likely turned in hiding families shortly before the end of the war.

Cara has donated letters from Otto Frank to the U of SC Anne Frank Center,  an official partner of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. This collection establishes the Anne Frank Archive on the 75th anniversary of her diary.

Located on the U of SC campus, it brings to life the experience of the Frank family and four others who spent two years hiding in Nazi German-occupied Amsterdam during World War II.

The Franks were discovered in 1944 and sent to concentration camps shortly before the end of the war. Otto was the only member of his family to survive.
