dc.description.abstract In a provocative article in the New Yorker Magazine, Cynthia Ozick differentiates between the public version of Anne Frank and the actual Anne Frank who hid with her family from the Nazis in an attic in Amsterdam. Ozick argues that the public version of Anne Frank had been divorced from its historical context. The perceptive and talented teenaged girl, Ozick argues, was very conscious of being doomed to perish along with millions of her fellow Jews, simply because she was Jewish. Ozick claims that because what remains is a sentimentalized, universalized and commodified image of Anne Frank, history would have been better served if the diary had never been publicly viewed.
