Event description

Description

We invite primary and secondary school groups to attend our thought provoking exhibition Anne Frank + You which takes a look at Anne Frank’s life and diary in parallel with the rise of the Nazis and the Holocaust. The exhibition also takes a look at the related themes of racism, conflict, identity and resistance with links to contemporary issues in Britain today.

School groups will be given an immersive experience, including a guided tour, additional context and knowledge about the themes in the exhibition, and a chance to reflect.

The exhibition links to the History, English, and Religious Studies curricula, as well as contributing to young people’s spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development.


The exhibition includes:

  • A look at Anne’s childhood, set against the rise of the Nazis and the Holocaust

  • An almost life size replica of Anne’s room in the secret annexe

  • The genocide tunnel with powerful film footage

  • The Anne Frank photo album, with photos of Anne and her sister Margot

  • Replica artefacts from Anne’s life and the Holocaust

  • Contemporary stories exploring how the issues that affected Anne are still relevant today


We hope that you have an informative, meaningful and memorable visit.

This exhibition is brought to Swiss Cottage by the generosity of the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government and Camden Council.
