EXHIBIT

ANNE FRANK - A HISTORY FOR TODAY

January 28 TO MAY 30 2014

VANCOUVER HOLOCAUST EDUCATION CENTRE
50 - 950 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver

MONDAY TO THURSDAY • 9-5 PM | FRIDAY • 9-4 PM

OPEN ON SUNDAY, MAY 4TH, FROM 1-4 PM
Guided tour at 2 PM


On her 13th birthday, Anne Frank receives a diary as a gift. Just weeks later her family enters into hiding in Amsterdam. For more than two years, Anne carefully records her thoughts, feelings, and observations in her now-iconic diary, one of the most widely read books in the world today. Through photos, narratives, and artefacts, Anne Frank – A History for Today illuminates the effect of National Socialism on one Jewish family, and explores the legacy of this history for all Canadians.

The program also features Out of the Archive: A Companion to Anne Frank — A History for Today.The photographs, documents and objects in this exhibit attest to the power of authentic artefacts to communicate an understanding of the past. Just as Anne Frank’s narrative emerges from the survival of her diary, the primary sources in the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre companion exhibit Out of the Archive provide insights into the lived experience of donors and their families before, during and after the Holocaust.
The artefacts reflect the diversity of experiences within Vancouver’s survivor community and carry with them the legacy of those who survived. Together, the materials speak to themes of childhood, faith, identity, rescue, hiding and resistance.

Anne Frank — A History for Today exhibit produced by The Anne Frank House. Supported by the Consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Isaac and Sophie Waldman Endowment Fund of the Vancouver Foundation, and Ralph Markin & Bob Markin, in honour of a dear friend, Leslie Spiro z"l.
