Anne Frank: A History for Today, an international traveling exhibition curated by the Anne Frank Center in New York, portrays the moving story of Anne Frank, a young, courageous Jewish girl who gained international fame after the posthumous publication of her diary written while she and her family were in hiding during World War II. The true story of Anne Frank serves as a powerful symbol and a role model for today. Her insights and courage continue to inspire students, educators, and citizens more than 60 years after her diary was first published.
This exhibit is designed to:
Challenge visitors to think about concepts such as tolerance, mutual respect, human rights, and democracy.
Inspire communities to use the past as a tool for improving their city’s future.
Help visitors understand that change in our society does not come about by itself. We all need to make a personal commitment to make our community and our world a better place.
The event runs through February 12.
