About the exhibition

The Anne Frank Exhibition “Let Me Be Myself” contains eight historical modules. The structure and design of this part of the exhibition enable visitors to identify with the personal story of Anne Frank.


The first part of ‘Let me be myself’: The Story of Anne Frank, focuses on the story of Anne Frank and her family. Large pictures are used to give an impression of her life, from her birth in Frankfurt in 1929 to her death in Bergen-Belsen in 1945. The personal story of Anne Frank is complemented by photographs and texts about the time in which she lived: the rise of the national socialists, the persecution of the Jews and the Second World War. The historical part is presented in chronological order, which enables the visitors to easily connect the developments in Nazi Germany with the life of the Frank family: the rise of the national socialists, and the isolation and discrimination of the Jewish population, eventually escalating in the Holocaust.

Contemporary Subjects

The second part of the exhibition centres around contemporary subjects. Five colourful modules contemporise the story of Anne Frank, showing how it is still relevant in today’s society. With discrimination still taking place on a daily basis all over the world, the youngsters who are shown in the exhibition speak about themselves and how they deal with today’s prejudices and discrimination. In 2019, after receiving feedback from Australian visitors we added two panels about Australian teenagers who experienced discrimination and bullying.
