The Anne Frank Gift Shop
How can the gift shop at this iconic house museum in Amsterdam be reimagined in a way that will appeal more to Gen Z? How do you update the “brand” for Anne Frank? Answering these questions is the charge of the motley crew in the design firm who are at the center of this dark comedy. By Mickey Rapkin, whose book “Pitch Perfect” was made into a film by that name, The Anne Frank Gift Shop is edgy. It raises important questions about how to teach young people history at a time when disinformation is rife. This work is especially timely.
Without Precedent: The Supreme Life of Rosalie Abella
A Holocaust survivor’s daughter becomes Canada’s first female Jewish Supreme Court judge, reshaping the legal world with landmark decisions on inclusivity, diversity, and equity. Rosalie Abella’s remarkable journey established her not only as a respected jurist but as a national treasure, often compared to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. This edifying, inspiring profile provides candid insights into both her arc from refugee child to her profoundly impacting Canadian human rights, and her marriage to famed historian Irving Abella.
