North Carolina’s K-12 teachers are invited to join the NC Civic Education Consortium ( for the 2014 Uhlman Family Seminar: Diaries & Dreams, Anne Frank & Jewish Private Life. Few documents have intrigued teachers and students as much as The Diary of Anne Frank. Her bravery in the face of oppression and her keen observations on human nature have rightly made her an iconic figure of the Holocaust, a witness providing a window into a horrific era in humankind. But Anne Frank, along with every other victim, was also an individual with a private life beyond the experience of the Holocaust. Yet, the domestic worlds that Frank and millions of Jewish families enjoyed before the war have largely been extinguished or overshadowed by their experiences in the Holocaust. This seminar will take a unique look at The Diary of Anne Frank and use it as a basis for a more comprehensive look at the lives of Jewish families and how they’ve been portrayed, as well as the disruption wrought on them by the Holocaust.

During day one of this dynamic two-day seminar, teachers will have the opportunity to participate in and receive sample lesson plans on the topics and themes covered throughout the two days, designed for easy implementation in the middle and high school classroom, as well as dialogue with one another regarding ideas, resources and best practices for teaching this complex history.

Friday evening, teachers will then travel to Raleigh for free admittance into Burning Coal Theatre’s production of The Diary of Anne Frank.

On day two, teachers will return to the role of students themselves as scholars present lectures on topics ranging from how family documents and diaries play a role in remembering the Shoah to how Frank coped with the hardships she faced with humor. In addition, Burning Coal Theatre will join us for a presentation regarding their process of producing the Diary as a play, which will include performances of key scenes from the production.
