In the decades since World War II, the story of Anne Frank has educated and inspired millions of people. Though she was only fifteen years old when she died, her short life served as an example of courage and hope, and has connected modern people with the lives of those who endured some of the most difficult years humanity has known. Learn more about a common girl’s uncommon lifetime at the Anne Frank Center! You can find it at 44 Park Place.
Anne Frank’s story is one of the most powerful testaments to the events in World War II. It provides a visceral, human connection to the terrible injustices perpetrated by the Nazi party. Her simple writings about her existence, and her years in hiding as she and her family evaded capture, put a face on the people of the era we can all relate to.
History on Display
The Anne Frank Center proudly presents a gallery which uses Anne Frank’s writings, as well as pictures and interactive displays, to draw visitors into the young woman’s world. They even have life-sized photographs of the bedroom in which she wrote her diary, to give visitors a truly engaging experience. Also on display are other artifacts of the Holocaust, to add detail to the events Anne Frank wrote about. Throughout the year, the Anne Frank Center hosts temporary exhibits from artists across the globe which explore related themes.
