Anne Frank - A History for Today is a touring exhibition taking place to mark Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January.
The display details the rise of Nazi Germany along with excerpts from the diary of the eponymous teenage girl.
A guided tour to fully explore its details, hosted by local, trained sixth form students, is running at 13:30 on 27 January.
Provided by the Anne Frank Trust, and delivered by Hope in the Heart CIC, the new exhibition and corresponding programme is a new resource available throughout the South West.
This popular exhibition captures the experience of Anne Frank’s life and is used as the foundation for the trust's educational work in schools, communities and prisons.
About the exhibition (source: Anne Frank Trust UK website)
By placing the complex historical events of the Holocaust against the backdrop of the life of one inspirational young person, the exhibition enables visitors to grasp the human consequences of persecution and war. It covers themes such as:
- Anne Frank’s diary and the history of the Frank family
- The introduction of the Nazi racist state
- The victims and appalling consequences of the Holocaust
- The deliberate and organised nature of genocide.
The exhibition challenges us to think about how these issues are relevant today and what we can do to prevent prejudice and discrimination.
