Anne Frank: A History for Today

This catalog of the Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibit recounts Anne Frank’s story using a wide selection of family photographs and passages from the diary. Her biography is enhanced by testimony from Holocaust survivors. The fact that the struggle against racism and prejudice is an ongoing one is emphasized by many references to contemporary instances of intolerance and injustice. From the back cover : “The story of Anne Frank still has important lessons to teach us today. The discrimination and racism that brought an end to her life did not disappear when World War II came to a close. Reading her life story can help us realize the value of tolerance and mutual respect and the importance of human rights.”
