27 Feb - 28 Mar 2019 Anne Frank - A history for today exhibition

Issued: Thu, 28 Feb 2019 11:42:00 GMT

The international exhibition "Anne Frank – a history for today"  The worldwide tour is coordinated by the Anne Frank House

With this exhibition the Anne Frank House aims to:

•Inform visitors about the history of the Holocaust from the perspective of Anne Frank and her family

•Show visitors that cultural, ethnic, religious and political differences between people exist in every society.
In many countries there are groups who consider themselves superior and deny others the right to equal treatment. Such views can lead to discrimination, exclusion, persecution and even murder;

•Challenge visitors to think about concepts such as tolerance, mutual respect, human rights and democracy;

•Help visitors to understand that a society where differences between people are respected does not come about by itself.
Legislation is of course necessary, but people also have to make a personal commitment.
