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.
