The life story of Anne Frank is the centerpiece of this exhibition, reflecting world events prior to, during, and after Nazi control. The exhibit juxtaposes photographs of the Frank family with images of historical events at the time to show how persecuted people such as the Franks were affected by political decisions and the actions of individuals.
Today, children and their families continue to be victims of violence, war, and conflict. This exhibit allows visitors to consider the effects of prejudice, discrimination, hate, and violence. Through the story of Anne Frank, visitors are encouraged to examine their own attitudes towards others.
“Never more relevant than today, this exceptional exhibit resonates with people of all ages and backgrounds. Anne’s life story challenges us to think critically, engage with current events, and to take an active role in our communities and government,” said Ilana Cone Kennedy, Director of Education at the Holocaust Center for Humanity.
