YES----GREAT FOR CHILDREN
2 May 2000 | by (West Palm Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

I saw this on television when I was in the 7th grade and at the time knew absolutely NOTHING about the Holocaust. Yes, Melissa Gilbert's Anne is real perky, the whole movie is, well, a little perky, which only STUNNED the 12 year-old me when I found out these people were MURDERED. This shock got me very interested in this period of time. I believe this is an excellent introduction to a terrible and interesting and sad chapter in human history.
