Anne Frank in the World

This exhibit tells the powerful story of Anne Frank and her family in the context of World War II Nazi Germany. The visitor enters the main exhibit space through a bookcase-like door, a telling reminder of the portal, which both concealed the Frank family and barred them from freedom in the world.

Visitors view seventy-five custom lit panels detailing the Anne Frank journey. The 2,500 square foot exhibit space also features selected student art work sponsored by the Georgia Holocaust Commission. A small replica of Anne’s room recalls the modest conditions of daily life in the Amsterdam Annex. The exhibit culminates in a striking spatial experience where visitors engage Anne’s words in over-scaled graphics and can retrieve a lasting message from the Place of the Scrolls.
