Anne and the Reverend

Anne and the Reverend Movie Poster

As a young man, Rev. Makoto Otsuka had a life-altering encounter with Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank. Inspired by what he heard, and after becoming a Christian minister, he undertook a mission to teach Anne's story to Japanese children.

He built a Holocaust museum in Miyuki, near Hiroshima, dedicated it to the memory of the 1.5 million children murdered. He conducts tours for schoolchildren, teaching them about the dangers of racism and hatred.

He even spent time in Israel, learning Hebrew and as we ride with him from one speaking engagement to another, you can hear him singing "Jerusalem of Gold."
