The Life Story of Anne Frank
Let Me Be Myself tells The Life Story of Anne Frank in a modern way, addressing current day issues of identity, exclusion, and discrimination. Anne’s experiences connect deeply with today’s youth as they grow and learn that all actions and words matter. This exhibition will also feature a Virtual Reality (VR) component from Force Field VR and Oculus Studios that allows the visitor to travel back in time to Anne Frank’s hiding place, the “Secret Annex.” The opening of the exhibit will be on January 25, 2020 at the Florida Holocaust Museum.
Making use of large size pictures, the exhibition shows The Life Story of Anne Frank from her birth in 1929 up to her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945. Each exhibition panel also contains images and texts about the world around Anne Frank: the rise of Hitler, the persecution of the Jews and the Second World War.
Opening Reception is free for The FHM members, $9 general admission. RSVPs are required, register here 727.820.0100 x301.

More on Anne Frank: Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was a German-born Dutch-Jewish diarist. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl, in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is one of the world’s best known books and has been the basis for several plays and films.
