This exhibit, hosted in the lower level of the Criss Library, uniquely tells the story of Anne Frank against the background of the Holocaust and the Second World War. It seeks to address several important questions: Who was Anne Frank? What are the lessons we can learn from the horrors that Anne’s family underwent? How do we prevent the repetition of the horrific crimes of the past? Most importantly, the goal of this exhibit is to remind people to never forget the horrors of the Holocaust.
Juxtaposing photographs of the Frank family with historical images, this exhibit shows how persecuted people were affected by the political actions of individuals and groups.
This exhibit is sponsored by the UNO Sam & Frances Fried Holocaust and Genocide Academy, UNO Criss Library, the anne frank house, and the University of South Carolina.
