Amanda Leight

In 1974, Neiman, a college student, wrote a letter to Anne Frank’s father, Otto Frank, the only Holocaust survivor in the family, saying how much the diary had inspired him. Frank wrote back, and the two struck up a correspondence that turned into a friendship. Neiman went to visit Frank at his home in Switzerland in 1976.

“Mr. Frank said to me, ‘It’s wonderful that you remember my family. But if you really want to honor Anne’s memory and all the people who died in the Holocaust, you need to do what Anne wanted to do: ‘Live your life doing good for other people,’” Neiman said.

"The highlight for me was getting to see the actual Diary. Otto had it in the house because he was going to be interviewed by Dutch television the next day, so I received an extra special blessing. I found Otto and Fritzi to be very warm, welcoming and the very essence of goodness and love.I felt like I had known them all my life!"

He's spent the last decade performing just about wherever in Pittsburgh anyone will let him; recent highlights have included Sydney Bruhl in Deathtrap at Little Lake, and Father Flynn in Doubt at The Theatre Factory. Looking further back, he performed with Throughline Theatre as Judge Haywood in Judgment at Nuremberg in 2016, and he wishes plays about the Holocaust felt less timely now, not more. He extends his gratitude to the family, friends and pets that make up his circle of loved ones, and to you for coming out to share your time with us. He hopes we make you think and inspire you to make a positive difference today.
