See the Travelling Anne Frank Exhibition - Fascinating Event
The travelling exhibition - "Let Me Be Myself, the Life Story of Anne Frank", was put together in Amsterdam and recalls the fascinating and heroic story of Anne Frank.

The exhibition also examines the relevance of her story in contemporary society and in particular regarding prejudice and discrimination.

There is also a 25-minute video highlight, as well as displays of the following:

A booklet about the rise of the Nazism;
A yellow six-pointed star which Jewish people were forced to
wear during this time;
A model of the Frank family's hiding place;
A replica of the hand-written diary that Anne Frank received on
her 13th birthday;
Large pictures showing Anne as a happy child in Frankfurt;
Pictures showing Anne's immigration to Amsterdam;
Pictures showing Anne's time while she was hiding.

The exhibition also helps to explain the personal story of the whole of Anne Frank's family with the important historical events of that time. These included the rise of the National Socialists, as well as the isolation and discrimination of the Jewish population, which of course eventuated in the escalation of the Holocaust.

So as to understand the chronological order of the events, almost every picture contains a time frame and below the timeline is the personal story of Anne Frank and above the timeline the visitor can see the "big historical events" of that time. In other words - the panels are presented in a chronological order, which enables the visitor to easily connect the developments in Nazi Germany with the life of the Frank family.

Anne was persecuted because she was a Jewess and the Exhibition enables the visitor to easily connect the developments in Nazi Germany with the life of the Frank family.

The organisers of this Exhibition are hoping that this travelling display will encourage schools from all areas to develop educational programmes around the exhibition, with the aim of raising young people's awareness of the dangers of anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination, as well as the importance of freedom, equal rights and democracy.

This travelling exhibition is devoted to the life and death of Anne Frank, who was a young Jewish girl in Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II. Anne Frank was born in 1929 and died in Bergen- Belsen in 1945. The Frank family were actually from Germany where Anne and her sister, Margot, were born in Frankfurt am Main, a big city in the south of Germany.

Their father also grew up there, while their mother came from Aachen, a German town near the Dutch border. Margot was born in 1926 and Anne three years later. They all lived in Frankfurt until 1933. Their parents then decided to move to the Netherlands as it was becoming too dangerous in Germany.

Their father, Otto then started a business in Amsterdam where the family felt safe, but on 10th May, 1940 the German army attacked the Netherlands. From the age of 13, Anne wrote down about her two years of hiding from the Nazis in a small annex in Amsterdam. Such was her bravery, that there is now even a wax figure of Anne Frank in the Museum of Wax Figures in Amsterdam.

Where is the wanneroo art gallery? This ad is not informative enough.
However the exhibition is a " must see".
