Anne Frank exhibition January 4-February 7, 2016.
Touring from the Anne Frank Center in New York, A History for Today is brought to Tallahassee by a coalition of sponsors: The Holocaust Education Resource Council, The Dorothy and Jonathan Rintels Charitable Foundation, the FSU Institute on WWII, and the Museum of Fine Arts funded through the Peace on Earth Gift.
Hilary Stipleman of the Anne Frank Center USA will give a K-12 teacher’s workshop on ways to teach the Holocaust and also instruct MoFA student volunteers and interns in conducting tours of the exhibition. Speaking to adult and K-12 audiences in the first week of the exhibition will be author Pieter Kohnstam. Pieter and his family were neighbors of the Frank family in Amsterdam before the Franks went into hiding and before Pieter’s family fled the Netherlands. The flight was chronicled in his father’s memoirs which were the basis for Pieter’s book A Chance to Live: A Family’s Journey to Freedom (© 2006; published in Amsterdam in 2008).
We also have on display Items from the Institute on World War II and the Human Experience.
