Sofia Kapkova and Ksenia Rappoport
Yesterday in the capital's cinema "October" premiere of the documentary "Anna Frank Parallel stories"(#AnneFrank. Parallel Stories), directed by Sabina Fedeli and Anna Migotto. The first to appreciate the picture Roman Abramovich, Sofia Kapkova, Ksenia Rappoport, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Maxim Vitorgan, Ksenia Solovyova and many others.
Before the film began to be shown, the founder of the Central House of Artists Sofya Kapkova, director of the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center Alexander Boroda and actress Ksenia Rappoport took the stage. Ksenia read an excerpt from the diary of Anne Frank, a Jewish girl from Germany who, after Adolf Hitler came to power, was forced to hide with her family in the Netherlands, and then was captured and sent to Auschwitz, where she died of typhus. After a while, Annaâ€™s diaries were revealed, denouncing Nazism (they were translated into many languages â€‹â€‹of the world), and she herself became a symbol of the Holocaust.
Sofya Kapkova, in turn, addressed all gathered with a welcoming speech. In it, she noted that the story told in the film does not lose its relevance today:
It seems to me that this film unites people. I am sure that â€œmemoryâ€ and â€œgratitudeâ€ are two superpowers that distinguish us humans. And if we often remind ourselves that violence, bullying – even on social networks – hatred, and even more so genocide – is scary, then tomorrow will be better than yesterday.

The documentary, shot on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust, is divided into three storylines. The first British actress Helen Mirren reads excerpts from the diary of Anne Frank in the accurately recreated interior of the refuge of a Jewish girlâ€™s family in Amsterdam, where they all hid from Nazi terror. In the second part, viewers are introduced to terrible childhood memories of five women who survived the Holocaust. In the final part, a young modern girl explores the life story of Frank and tries to imagine the tragedy in the context of our time.
The film will be released in Russian rental on February 6. The picture can also be later evaluated at the online cinema Nonfiction.film.
