As this was my first Context course, I was unsure of what to expect, but I enjoyed and looked forward to each session. I even decided to reread The Diary of Anne Frank during the course. Gillian provided excellent background information, using photographs/pictures and primary sources when available to illustrate all that the Franks and their fellow housemates endured. It was particularly interesting to learn about the Franks life before hiding and to hear about those who risked their lives to support the Franks as well as about Anne's legacy even today. Gillian's passion for the subject was evident throughout.
Wonderfully presented and incredibly informative.
I have really enjoyed Gillian's lectures and have so looked forward to Wednesday afternoons. Learning about Anne Frank's early life and that of her family and the other's who were hiding in the annex have made them all really come to life. There is so much more to Anne's story than just her diary.
THIS COURSE HAS BEEN INCREDIBLY MOVING. TODAY, I HAD TEARS IN MY EYES. MS. PERRY IS A WORLD CLASS EXPERT WHO HAS LIVED THIS STORY.
Cannot wait for the next four!!
