Traveling Exhibits-2

Throughout North America, our exhibits have been hosted by community centers, schools, colleges and universities, arts organizations, libraries, and museums located in the United States and Canada. The Center can help you organize events and engage your community to fund raise, plan, and implement a complete program that includes docent-led tours for students, teachers and visitors.

We offer student workshops, a comprehensive bookstore, as well as meetings with Holocaust survivors, World War II veterans, or those with first-hand experience of human rights abuses.  In this way you can offer your audiences a variety of ways to learn about Anne Frank and her ideals.

Founded in 1977 by Anne’s father Otto, The Anne Frank Center USA, a partner of the Anne Frank House, uses the diary and spirit of Anne Frank as unique tools to advance her legacy, to educate young people and communities in the U.S. and Canada about the dangers of intolerance, anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination, and to inspire the next generation to build a world based on equal rights and mutual respect.
