“Anne Frank – A History for Today”
April 1 – May 1, 2014, M-F, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Creative Access Art Center, 500 South 8th Street, Boise
(two blocks north of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial)
The life history of Anne Frank and her family is the leading thread running through the Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibition. The family’s story is juxtaposed against world events before, during and after the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. The exhibit includes photographs of the Frank family and the other occupants of the Secret Annex and shows how people were persecuted by political decisions and by the actions of individuals. Throughout the exhibit, Anne’s own wonderfully candid writing provides a central voice to the exhibit narrative, bringing a poignant and truly beautiful perspective to the story.
Educators are encouraged to reserve a day and time to bring students to view the exhibit, and while in the neighborhood, include a docent-led tour of the Memorial. Call 345-0304 to schedule.
