Anne Frank – A History for Today

Buy Tickets

Seventy-five years after her death, Anne Frank lives on through her famous diary, in which she confided her thoughts and feelings as a Jewish teenager forced into hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. But Anne’s story, like the circumstances that led to the Holocaust, began before her family took refuge in the secret annex in 1942.

This exhibition juxtaposes personal photographs, stories and diary entries with a timeline of the Nazis’ escalating persecution of Jewish people. Anne and most of her family died in the Holocaust. Her story continues to resonate today.

A travelling exhibition developed by the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam (The Netherlands), and presented by the Canadian War Museum.
