The international travelling exhibition Anne Frank - A History for Today places the story of Anne Frank against the backdrop of the Holocaust. Quotations from Anne’s diary and photos of the Frank family are the backbone of the exhibition. These are accompanied by other personal stories about the consequences of exclusion and persecution. In 2011, this exhibition travelled to 30 countries around the world. Below we focus on a few.

Russia

The Anne Frank exhibition opened in the city of Voronezh in Central Russia in May. The exhibition could later be seen at four other locations in the same city. Two exhibitions in St. Petersburg followed. 

The Netherlands

In June and July, the Anne Frank exhibition was displayed in prisons in Vught and Zoetermeer. Prisoners had an opportunity to view the exhibition escorted by fellow prisoners who had received training as guides. Based on the story of Anne Frank, prisoners were encouraged to think about themes such as diversity, prejudice and discrimination. Several additional activities were organised around the exhibition, including a diary project.

Canada

For the first time, the Anne Frank exhibition travelled to Quebec, the French-speaking part of Canada. In November, a bilingual French and English version of the exhibition opened at Collège Bourget in Rigaud. Students had the opportunity to see the exhibition with their fellow students acting as guides. The school organised various activities related to the exhibition, including talks by Holocaust survivors and writing workshops. A Canadian version of the website Anne Frank Guide also went online in French and English. 

Students from Quebec took part in a guide training to escort their fellow students through the exhibition.
