About the Exhibit
THE ANNE FRANK IN THE WORLD EXHIBITis a powerful vehicle for teaching about the causes, instruments and dangersof discrimination and racism, and of the dangerous consequences spawnedby hate, violence and brutality.
Through 600 photographs and commentary,the exhibit traces the historical developments during the pre-Nazi erathrough the end of World War II. It discusses events and conditions whichled up to World War II, the growth of the Nazi Party, the dismantling ofdemocracy, the escalating persecution of “enemies”, and the relationof these events to current issues. The exhibit, together with otherrelated programs, will help Central Jersey communities focus on promotingracial, ethnic, and religious understanding.
The exhibit was developed by theAnne Frank House in Amsterdam, and it is sponsored in North Americaby The Anne Frank Center, USA as a traveling exhibit which visitscommunities across the country to educate the public about Anne Frank’sstory, and the horrors of the Holocaust. To date, the exhibit hasbeen seen by over 2,000,000 visitors in 91 cities.
