Through this traveling English-Spanish language exhibit composed of 32 panels which can be configured to fit most spaces, middle and high school students learn about Anne Frank’s childhood in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, the rise of the Nazis, the persecution of the Jews, and the way the people responded. Most importantly, this experience features two days of trainings for student docents who go on to serve as exhibition guides at their schools, developing leadership and advocacy skills.
In this unique program, middle and high school students are taken on a room by room, virtual tour of the Secret Annex, led by expert facilitators. The tour is often followed by a theatrical performance, ANNE AND MARTIN, where actors portraying Anne Frank and Martin Luther King, Jr., who were born the same year, read passages from
The Diary of Anne Frank and MLK’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail”. The experience culminates in a live Q&A with the actors responding to viewers’ questions, in character.
Programming coming May 2023
