Anne Frank: A History for Today

Where: Main Library
When: April 4 to April 30

The story of Anne Frank and her family is the centerpiece of this beautiful display. The 30 panels of the exhibit lead visitors from Anne's early years in Germany, to her immigration to the Netherlands, through her time in hiding, and to the betrayal and arrest of her family. Anne's own writing provides a central voice to the narrative. (The exhibit is available in English and Spanish.)

Anne Frank: A History for Today was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by The Anne Frank Center USA.
