The story of Anne Frank

on

I visited the Bairnsdale Library last week as there is a new exhibition about Anne Frank on the top floor of the library.

The exhibition opened in The Jewish Holocaust Centre in Melbourne and is now travelling around the country.

In 2015 the Anne Frank House introduced a new generation of travelling exhibitions: “Let Me Be Myself – The Life Story of Anne Frank”. Apart from the story of Anne Frank and the historical context of her time, it specifically highlights the contemporary relevance of the story of Anne Frank.

You can read more information on the exhibition here.

As well as the specific Anne Frank exhibition there is another part of the exhibition which relates to tolerance, racism, disability, religion, nationality, gender and how we view ourselves.  A very thought provoking exhibition and one that will be excellent for students as well as adults to view.

      I spent quite a bit of time making sure that I read all the information.

  2. What a great idea to bring in the modern relevance.
