UCF Judaic Studies Lecturer's Series presents David Barnouw


David Barnouw

After the death of Otto Frank in 1980, David Barnouw got involved in the history of Anne Frank and her diary. He became one of the editors of "The Diary of Anne Frank-The Critical Edition," a scholarly edition published in the Netherlands in 1986.

The interest in "The Critical Edition" has been impressive, and the reviews have been very favorable (100,000 copies sold worldwide). The Anne Frank diaries are not only literature, but part of the history of Jewish German refugees in the Netherlands during the Holocaust.

Since the last decade of the twentieth century, Barnouw has become a world-renowned expert on Anne Frank. He has written extensively about her diary, presented papers at conferences, and has given lectures about her worldwide. His latest book, "The Anne Frank Phenomenon" (Amsterdam 2012), has been published in German, and Indiana University Press will soon publish an American translation.

On Tuesday Feb. 7, at 1:30 p.m., Barnouw will be presenting his lecture on Anne Frank at Central Florida Hillel at Northview, 3925 Lockwood Blvd, Oviedo, FL 32765. In addition, Barnouw will be speaking on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. at the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center, located on the campus of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando, 851 N Maitland Ave, Maitland, FL 32751. Parking is readily available at both sites.

These lectures are being co-sponsored by the UCF Judaic Studies Program, UCF Hillel, Chabad UCF, and the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center, Maitland.

For further information, please contact Dr. Kenneth Hanson, director of Judaic Studies, UCF, at Kenneth.Hanson@ucf.edu or 407-823-5129.
