Recently Ballet Florida performed a ballet on the same topic called "Anne Frank", with choreography by Mauricio Wainrot.
Kenneth MacMillan did a ballet,"Gloria", thematically concerned with World War I and inspired by Vera Brittain's "Testament of Youth", if memory serves.

I think Joffrey did it a few years back and should be available on video somewhere.

Tudor did do both "Dark Elegies" and "An Echoing of Trumpets" which had a perceived anti-war theme, although the nature of the cataclysm was never explicitly spelled out in either.

Sorry for going off topic, I just saw the movie on cable and was so inspired by the bravery of George Clooney and Marky Mark that I had to pull it in somehow.

The ballet I remember as being set in a concentration camp was indeed called Traces and Marcia Haydee was the featured dancer. Interestingly it was the last ballet Cranko created before his sudden death.

Help! I've totally blanked out here, but doesn't ABT have a ballet in it's rep (somewhat abstract) in which the young men go off to war and die and the women are left to mourn??? I've clearly only seen this once, as I can't remember the name, music, choreographer, etc. - all of which would be very useful just now. Perhaps it had no specific program notes to that effect and the above was just my interpretation. Must be my "early onset Alzheimer's"....
Sounds like "The Harvest According" by Agnes de Mille, music by Marc Blitzstein, an expansion of the "Civil War Ballet" from the musical Bloomer Girl.
