I’m interested into Jewish tradition, as it is one of the traditions which has been closest with our traditions in Christianity.
Most of the old testament is actually a book considered as a holy by the Jews as well, just like with us Christians.

Thus I’m quite interested into what the Jewish tradition used to be and is today.
Knowing Jewish tradition gives me another way to compare my faith (the Orthodox Christianity) to the jewish judaism.

In that manner of thought, just recently I googled for the top most popupar Jewish movies and one of them that I come up with was called The Diary of Anne Frank

The version I’ve watched is actually a bit more modern since there is also a version of 1959.
The movie story line is based on a Dutch book literally translated as The Diary of a Young Girl

The movie is about a jewish young girl that in her teenage and is growing in a hiding somewhere in Amsterdam surrounded by her family and a couple of other jewish families.
The whole action develops during the progress of the Second World War (1942-1944).

The story tries to presents the hardness of the Jewish life in this days by taking a close look into the daily life of this few families that were hiding in Amsterdam in order to escape the Nazi’s concentration camps or execution.

The movie triggers a lot of emotions but generally is nothing special I actually expected a bit more, since I’ve red some positive reviews before I watched it.
However there is also good things in the movie among which is the excellent actors play.

The rest however is nothing special and doesn’t expose much the Jewish tradition and culture (as I’ve expected), at least it doesn’t get into detail of Jewish tradition like the Fiddler on the Roof musical movie

Anyhow if you’re of this people that like so much the slow progressing moviews without too much action, then you might like it.
Here I include a short movie from youtube to give you a general idea about the movie:

    Very beautiful story but as one person used to say “too good to be true”.
    A book and close analysis of “true story” of anne frank reveals it is a total Hoax. Check out this book:

    Is The Diary Of Anne Frank Genuine?
    By Robert Faurisson
    Published by The Truth At Last
    PO Box 1211
    Marietta, GA 30061

    Possibly the biggest Hoax ever perpetrated on the population of the world, second only to the supposed “Holocaust” itself, is the Diary of Anne Frank.

    Robert Faurisson, a French literature Professor at the University of Lyon in central France, and an eminent “Holocaust” historian, proves that almost all of the “diary” was written by Anne Frank’s father, Otto Frank. Documentation to support this truth includes the fact, among many others, that the manuscript was written with a ball point pen, the invention of which occurred after the war. Ann Frank died of typhus in March, 1945, before the end of World War II.

    Possibly the one book that is read by more students that any other in America, is the Diary of Ann Frank – a total HOAX!
