Anne Frank + You, delivered by anti-prejudice education charity Anne Frank Scotland, in partnership with Glasgow Museums, presents facsimile artefacts from Anne’s life and the Holocaust including a life-size replica of her bedroom in the ‘secret annexe’ where she and her family hid for more than two years in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Historical content is juxtaposed with a contemporary section which highlights themes from Anne’s diary, such as racial hatred and the value of freedom and education.
The event will also see the charity’s Scottish launch of #IstandwithAnne – a social media campaign aimed at encouraging users to show solidarity with Anne’s message of social justice and equality or all.
Anne Frank Scotland – part of the Anne Frank Trust UK - uses the life and diary of Anne Frank to educate and empower young people to challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination. The charity delivers its education programme in primary and secondary schools in Glasgow each year, training hundreds of exhibition peer guides and nurturing a generation of Anne Frank Ambassadors – young people who are trained to spread Anne’s message of social justice and equality for all in their schools, local communities and online. More than 50 Anne Frank Ambassadors – from 10 secondary schools* across Glasgow - will act as exhibition guides at the launch event and give free interactive tours to primary school children and other visitors throughout June.
Tours are bookable through eventbrite if schools or adult groups would like a guided tour by Secondary school Anne Frank Ambassadors.
Anne Frank would have been 90 next week - on 12 June. She was murdered in the Holocaust simply because she was Jewish. But her story lives on in her astonishing diary - which has sold 36 million copies, globally - and in the education initiatives she has inspired around the world. The Anne Frank + You exhibition offers a fascinating and moving insight into Anne’s life and legacy.
Anne Frank + You is at St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art from 7-30 June. The exhibition, and the Anne Frank Ambassador programme is supported by Young Start, The Robertson Trust, The Gannochy Trust, Glasgow City Council, and Glasgow Life. Museum opening hours apply.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Anne Frank + You are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
