Anne Frank:
 A History for Today

On view January 20 through June 4, 2017

This powerful exhibit, developed by the Anne Frank House and sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, tells the story of the Frank family before, during and after the rise of the Nazis. It shows how people were persecuted by political decisions and by the actions of individuals, and it depicts individuals who chose to become perpetrators, those who were bystanders, and those who were willing to resist Nazi tyranny.
