Anne Frank’s legacy continues to grow in Australia
The New Anne Frank ‘Let me by myself’ exhibition launched in Canberra in February and is now showing in Launceston, Tasmania.
The aim of the new exhibition is to specifically highlight the contemporary relevance of the story of Anne Frank for young Australians, exploring the following general themes:
- Self identity
- Group identity
- Response, and what can be learned from the story of Anne Frank.
Two Men And A Truck continues to sponsor the Anne Frank travelling exhibitions and facilitate the logistics of their journeys throughout metropolitan and regional Australia.
Founder Richard Kuipers, who grew up in Holland, says the story of Anne Frank has something to offer people of all ages, and still holds great significance today.
“Anne Frank symbolises to me the second world war, the holocaust, the brutality and discrimination amongst races and religions,” he says.
“Sponsoring the Exhibition and spreading her story is the most rewarding and fulfilling projects I have been involved with.”
A History for Today is currently showing in Sydney and Let Me Be Myself will stay in Tasmania in July before moving to Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.
