USC Shoah Foundation is co-hosting a film screening and Q&A about the new film No Asylum: The Untold Chapter of Anne Frank’s Story at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 4 p.m.

No Asylum, directed by Paula Fouce, is the dramatic and tragic story of Otto Frank’s desperate attempts to secure American visas before going into hiding with his family in 1942. Based on recently-discovered letters by Otto Frank in the YIVO Institute of Jewish Research’s family archives, the film also includes interviews with Anne Frank’s surviving family.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Fouce and Holocaust survivor Eva Geiringer-Schloss, who is Otto Frank’s stepdaughter and was an acquaintance of Anne’s as a child. Her testimony is preserved in the Visual History Archive.

The screening is free but reservations are required here.

Schloss visited USC in January 2013 in an event sponsored by USC Shoah Foundation and Chabad @ USC.

The Museum of Tolerance currently houses an Anne Frank exhibit on the life and legacy of Anne Frank. Anne’s story, told in her own words, comes to life through rare artifacts, unique documents, and photographs. Visitors view a facsimile of her famous diary and several other examples of her original writing that culminated in what has become one of the most famous and well-read books ever. The Anne exhibit highlights little known facts about her time in hiding and the events that led to her arrest. Hear first-hand accounts about Anne from the people who knew her, and experience the story of Anne Frank as never before.
