JAN NIKLAS AS FRITZ PFEFFER IN THE EMMY WINNING AND
GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATED ABC MINISERIES


“ANNE FRANK”

It really doesn't matter how many times you have seen previous versions of the story of Anne Frank, whose family tried to save itself from the Nazi invaders of Amsterdam by living in a secret hiding place. Watching ABC's four-hour sweep mini is like seeing
it for the first time. No, it's even better. It's like seeing colors textures and patterns you never realized were there.
Also crucial to the success of this mini are outstanding perfomances by the entire cast.
