As a little girl I was enthralled by the Story of Anne Frank (the book is called “The Diary of Anne Frank”) – the history of this young girl is something that everyone should know about. Here in Utah we are having an exhibit that is free – I would say take the whole family and learn about this courageous young woman…
A HISTORY FOR TODAY
Shows April 13 — May 11, 2010
This FREE National Exhibit opens at the Salt Lake City Public Library (210 East 400 South adjacent to TRAX stop).
School and Group Tours must be reserved by contacting the Jewish Federation of Utah: annefrankexhibit@ShalomUtah.org or (801) 581-0102.
The life history of Anne Frank and her family is the leading thread running through “Anne Frank: A History for Today.” The family’s story is juxtaposed against world events before, during and after the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. The exhibit includes photographs of the Frank family and the other occupants of the Secret Annex and shows how people were persecuted by political decisions and by the actions of individuals. Implicit in the exhibit are the themes of scapegoating, bullying, anti-Semitism, racism, ethnic cleansing, and genocide. Visitors are challenged to look for ways to resolve differences without violence and to learn about human rights laws and standards as defined by such documents as the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights and Convention on the Rights of Children. Finally, visitors are encouraged by docents to learn about current events and take an active role in their community and government.
Exhibit is bilingual: English/Spanish
Appropriate for elementary, middle school, high school grade levels and above
The Anne Frank Center suggests 90-minutes for group tours and discussion.
