Anne Frank Video Game Re-Creates One Day of Hiding

By: JTA

An interactive video game will allow users to relive a day in the life of Holocaust diarist Anne Frank.

The focus of the game, simply titled “Anne Frank,” is the day in October 1942 that the teenage Anne wrote in her diary about her fears that a worker was about to discover the family’s hiding place in Amsterdam, German media reported.

German video designer Kira Resari, 25, calls the game an “interactive experience” that was not meant to be “fun.” It is not yet available for sale.

“It’s more like you get carried away, touched, and perhaps moved to tears,” he told the website, adding that he “would not give away the ending.”

“I want to make a contribution toward ensuring that she is never forgotten,” he said. Resari said he wanted to contribute to ensuring that the persecution of Jews and the Holocaust never be forgotten. “Younger generations need access to history on their own wavelength,” he told the Protestant online news portal evangelisch.de.

    Just for the sake of keeping an even scorecard, how about if someone creates a “game”  (that’s what they like to call it), all about the last seven words  of Jesus Christ?
    Let’s call a halt to this “game” crap before somebody gets hurt.  Everybody knows full well: it’s not  a “game” at all. We’re dealing with people’s emotions, religious beliefs, and we’re all on very shaky ground.  Before there’s a riot, can’t everyone just BACK OFF???

    It is amazing to me that so many deny that the holocaust really happened. So many were murdered during this period. War is one thing but outright murder because you simply do not like ones religion, skin color, etc. is evil. If we do not remember and learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. We see signs of a holocaust happening again.
