This is an event of historic significance and one that should not be missed.
From March 12, 2016 to August 28, 2016, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum presents Anne Frank – A History For Today, with artifacts never before displayed in Canada.
This an opportunity not just to see, but to experience the courage of Anne Frank (pictured above, age 12, in Amsterdam) as she and seven other people of Jewish faith hid from World War ll Nazi Germans in a secret annex in Amsterdam.
As most people are aware, during her self-imposed exile from freedom, Anne Frank recorded their struggle in her diary.
Every day, for almost two years, as she hid from the Nazi occupation, Anne Frank entered her thoughts and eye-witnessed accounts of the day in a journal, a history of the prejudice that was faced by so many during the Holocaust, a true testament to her perseverance and bravery.
The international exhibition Anne Frank – A History For Today has traveled all over the world, and is presented more than 300 times per year. The worldwide tour is coordinated by the Anne Frank House, in Amsterdam and is designed to:
- Inform visitors about the history of the Holocaust from the perspective of Anne Frank and her family;
- Show visitors that cultural, ethnic, religious and political differences between people exist in every society. In many countries there are groups who consider themselves superior and deny others the right to equal treatment. Such views can lead to discrimination, exclusion, persecution and even murder;
- Challenge visitors to think about concepts such as tolerance, mutual respect, human rights and democracy;
- Help visitors to understand that a society where differences between people are respected does not come about by itself. Legislation is of course necessary, but people also have to make a personal commitment.
Don’t miss this glimpse into history. For tickets, general admission applies and tickets can be purchase at the Museum.
