The travelling exhibition
The Swedish Anne Frank exhibition opened officially in the gallery of The Living History Forum on 18 February 2016. The educational department of Living History had developed an educational programme in which students were active participants. When the exhibition closed in February 2017, thousands of students from Stockholm and surroundings had taken part in the programme.
After Stockholm, the exhibition went on to tour museums and other cultural institutions in Sweden.
The Swedish Anne Frank exhibition has been on display at the Peace House in Uppsala Castle since 6 June 2017. Om jag bara får vara mig själv, the Swedish version of Let Me Be Myself - The Life Story of Anne Frank is at the centre of an educational programme that is offered to students from Uppsala.
Between 2008 and 2010, the exhibition Anne Frank - A History for Today was on display in Stockholm and other locations in Sweden. The tour was coordinated by The Living History Forum and the Peace House Uppsala.
The discussion programme Free2choose was an important part of the educational programme around the exhibition. In different cities students created film clips according to the format of Free2choose, paying special attention to the Swedish context of freedom rights. These clips deal with the issues of publishing other people’s pictures on the internet, the installation of surveillance cameras and of graduation ceremonies taking place in a church.
