Guided Tours: (Approximately 60 minutes)
Maximum 35 participants
June 5th - September 4th
The exhibition tells the story of Anne Frank against the background of the Holocaust and the Second World War. It shows photographs of Anne Frank's childhood in Frankfurt and in Amsterdam, and portrays the rise of the Nazis, the persecution of the Jews and the way the people responded to this. In a consequent way the exhibition shows the impact of the Nazi policy on one particular family.
Your guide will lead you through a personal experience of the exhibition, explaining the content to the group. Your guide will lead the group by asking questions that will help them to reflect on the historical events, and will thereby challenge the group to make relevant connections with developments in contemporary society. The group may then be inspired to participate in a peer discussion on issues like tolerance and discrimination. The group will have the opportunity to explore the exhibition, and view the DVD, “The Short Life of Anne Frank”, (30 minute duration) intended for a student or adult audience, a 30 minute video (General rating).
