The Netherlands

Travelling exhibitions and activities

The Dutch version of the exhibition Let Me Be Myself - The Life Story of Anne Frank is on tour in the Netherlands. Usually it is shown for a period of two to four weeks in a variety of locations, such as schools and museums.

The travelling exhibition

In 2015 the exhibition Let Me Be Myself - the Life Story of Anne Frank replaced its predecessor Anne Frank - A History for Today which was shown in almost 100 locations throughout the Netherlands.
The official launch of the new exhibition took place in the synagogue of Dieren in February 2015. Some of the young people that play a role in the contemporary part of the exhibition contributed to the opening. In the following weeks, students from the local secondary school Het Rhedens gave guided tours to students from Dieren and the surrounding area.

Opening Let me be myself

Exhibition at the Memory Museum Nijverdal

Since 2010 a permanent copy of the banner version of Anne Frank - A History for Today is on display at the Memory Museum in Nijverdal.

Prison Project

The travelling Anne Frank exhibition is frequently put up in prisons as part of an educational project. Based on the concept of peer education, prisoners themselves are responsible for the guided tours. Prior to the exhibition presentation they receive a two-day training by the Anne Frank House. The prison tour of the exhibition is coordinated by Exodus Netherlands and the Anne Frank House and is supported by the Custodial Institutions Agency, part of the Ministry of Security and Justice.

The Dutch prison project is modelled after a successful tour of the Anne Frank exhibition through prisons in the United Kingdom, organised by the Anne Frank Trust, the permanent UK partner of the Anne Frank House.
