AnneFrank+You Exhibition comes to Dublin

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council’s Public Libraries is proud to bring you the AnneFrank+You Exhibition, a dramatic multi-media exhibition presenting the short and tragic life of a Jewish schoolgirl and her family during the Nazi occupation of Europe.  This Exhibition is FREE and will be on display in Dublin City Library and Archives, Pearse Street, Dublin 2, from 23rd October to 11th December 2013.

The Anne Frank+You Exhibition includes quotations from the German schoolgirl’s famous diary, written while she and her family lived in hiding in Amsterdam from 1942 to 1944. Themes that Anne wrote about in her diary, such as racial hatred, war and conflict and the value of democracy and freedom, are presented in an up to date and contemporary fashion, along with filmed interviews with young people discussing their own views, concerns and hopes for the future.Published by her father after her death in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, the diary has inspired millions of people, including Nelson Mandela during his own incarceration.

“The Exhibition is recommended for adults and children (age10+) and includes the ‘Anne Frank photo album’, replica artifacts from Anne’s life and the Holocaust, and an almost life size replica of Anne’s room in the Secret Annex. You will also have a chance to sign the Anne Frank Declaration and make a personal pledge to challenge prejudice and reduce hatred in our communities. This is just one of the many great exhibitions that Dublin City Council’s Public Libraries provide”, said Margaret Hayes, Dublin City Librarian.

This Exhibition is produced by the Anne Frank Trust UK and the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam and is currently touring around Ireland and the United Kingdom
