Travelling exhibitions and activities

The Romanian version of Anne Frank – A History for Today was launched for the first time in Oradea, in 2014. The Romanian tour is organised by Asociaţia Tikvah, a non-profit organisation that promotes Holocaust remembrance and human rights.

The travelling exhibition

The official opening of the travelling exhibition Anne Frank - a History for Today was held in the County Public Library Biblioteca Judeţeană Gheorghe Şincai in April 2014 in Oradea. The Dutch ambassador to Romania, Matthijs van Bonzel, opened the exhibition.

After Oradea, the exhibition was shown in other locations in Romania. Some of the venues were in an area with Hungarian minorities and for this purpose part of the content of the exhibition was translated into Hungarian. The exhibition has travelled to many other cities such as Zalau, Arad, Cluj-Napoca, Sibiu, Brasov, Bistrita, and Iasi.

At each location, the opening event included readings from Anne Frank's essay Give! which she wrote in March 1944, as well as a showing of the documentary film The Short Life of Anne Frank.

The last location visited in 2015 was the National Library of Romania in Bucharest, where Asociaţia Tikvah launched the exhibition on 21 September. In 2016, Asociaţia Tikvah continued to tour the exhibition to other cities and locations across the country, starting on 9 March at the Eugen Todoran Central University Library in Timisoara.
