Anne Frank: a history for today

The travelling exhibition tells the story of Anne Frank set against the background of the Holocaust.

Newcastle Region Library has the privilege of hosting this wonderful exhibition in our Lovett Gallery.

When: 3rd October - 29th November 2014 (click here for gallery opening hours)

Where: Lovett Gallery, Newcastle Region Library, 2nd floor, Laman St.

Amsterdam 1942

On her 13th birthday, Anne Frank is given a diary. A few weeks later her life is turned upside down. The Nazis want to arrest her, only because she is Jewish. Together with her family she goes into hiding.

For more than two years she will use her diary to record what she thinks, feels and experiences.

She cannot foresee that - long after she perished in the Holocaust - millions of people all over the world will be reading her diary.
