Center Stage

The play based on Anne Frank's original diary won the Pulitzer Prize in 1955. Shelley Winters snagged herself an Academy Award in the follow-up movie and generously donated it to the Anne Frank House, housed in Amsterdam. (You could even have your students act part of this out, but be warned, it's pretty intense.)
