Let Me Be Myself - Anne Frank Travelling Exhibition

Open Monday to Saturday, closed Sundays and Public Holidays

In 2015 the Anne Frank House introduced a new generation of travelling exhibitions: “Let Me Be Myself - The Life Story of Anne Frank”. Apart from the story of Anne Frank and the historical context of her time, it specifically highlights the contemporary relevance of the story of Anne Frank. The first part of “Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank”, focuses on the story of Anne Frank.

Large pictures are used to give an impression of her life, from her birth in Frankfurt in 1929 to her death in Bergen- Belsen in 1945 The personal story of Anne Frank is complemented by photographs and texts about the time in which she lived: the rise of the national socialists, the persecution of the Jews and the Second World War. The historical panels are presented in a chronological order, which enables the visitors to easily connect the developments in Nazi Germany with the life of the Frank family. The second part of the exhibition centres around contemporary subjects. Five colourful modules contemporise the story of Anne Frank, showing how it is still relevant in today’s society.

With discrimination still taking place on a daily basis all over the world, the youngsters who are shown in the exhibition speak about themselves and how they deal with today’s prejudices and discrimination. The contemporary part is complemented by two short films.
