Anne Frank in Croatia for the First Time

Anne_FrankThe Anne Frank ‘A history for Today’ travelling exhibition will make its way to Croatia for the very first time. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the life of one of the most discussed Jewish girls who died aged 15 in a Nazi concentration camp in 1945 when the exhibition opens on 20 September at the Zagreb Faculty of Philosophy. The exhibition will run for 6 weeks and will also take place in the Croatian cities of Split, Osijek and Rijeka.

The exhibition consists of eleven panels. Each panel displays approximately fifteen photos as well as accompanying texts. To emphasise the chronological order of events, almost every panel contains a time line.Below the time line is the personal story of Anne Frank and above the time line the visitor is confronted with the ‘big historical events’ of that time. Anne Frank, who was born in the city of Frankfurt am Main in Weimar Germany, gained international fame posthumously after a diary she kept, which chronicled her life from 12 June 1942 until 1 August 1944 documenting her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II, was published. Her diary has been the basis for several plays and films.
