Let Me Be Myself - The Life Story of Anne Frank

Exploring the life of young Anne Frank and her family, as they face the rise of the Nazi Party in Germany and the events surrounding the Holocaust, this exhibition covers the story from Anne’s birth in 1929 up to her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945.

This travelling exhibition aims to inform young people about this terrible history and challenges them to explore subjects like identity, prejudice, and discrimination. These themes are further explored through the experiences of six contemporary young people who are also challenged by being different.

The Anne Frank House launched this exhibition as the successor of the acclaimed exhibition, Anne Frank: A History for Today, which was shown at Waikato Museum in 2011.

Education programmes are available for this exhibition.

Toured by the Anne Frank Stichting Foundation with the support of The Holocaust Centre of New Zealand.
