LOS ANGELES -- Holocaust Survivor, David Wiener, survived slave labor camps, prison and the extermination camp in Auschwitz using his innovative personality and creativity.  He recently shared his story of survival and success with a packed house of young professionals at MyAishLA.

His message, "Be a proud Jew, don’t give up who you are,” resonated deeply with the crowd.


Anne's dreams and aspirations were cut short when she and her family were found in hiding and sent to Nazi concentration camps. Anne Frank has become one of the most notable figures from the Holocaust gaining fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl--one of the world's best-known books.

The Museum of Tolerance's "Anne" exhibit brings Anne's story to life through interactive environments, multimedia presentations and intriguing displays. The immersive experience is narrated by Academy Award®-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld.

This exhibit highlights a replica of Anne's actual diary, original pen-pal letters between Anne, her sister Margot, and two sisters living in Iowa, a 360-degree cinema experience of Anne's life which guests access through a secret bookcase passage, her original autograph album and period cinema memorabilia.

Please join us for the US premiere of "ANNE, A New Play" that "rediscovers" the iconic figure.  This innovative production does away with traditional sets and has a multi-cultural cast--to underscore that these are real people dealing with the real issues we are facing today. "ANNE, a new play" was named 5 top theater productions you should see this summer by Time Out.
