2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, the death of Anne Frank and the end of the Second World War. To commemorate these three historic events, St Albans Cathedral will be hosting the unique Anne Frank + You exhibition, a touring exhibition produced by the Anne Frank Trust UK.
“I will make my voice heard, I will go out into the world and work for mankind!” said Anne Frank in The Diary of a Young Girl. And so she has all around the world and through the decades the remarkable story of Anne Frank has been heard.
The Anne Frank +YOU Exhibition will be on display in the St Albans Cathedral North Transept from Thursday 23th January 2020 until Thursday 20th February 2020 and will be open every day from 10:00 am till 17:00.
This really is a thought-provoking exhibition not only about her life and legacy. The exhibition, of course, explores Anne Frank, her diary and the Holocaust and how they highlight contemporary injustices but far from being just about historical facts, the exhibition also explores how issues such as racial hatred, the value of freedom and education play out in the modern world.
General admission to the Anne Frank+YOU Exhibition is FREE. Please note that St Albans and Harpenden Schools will be using the exhibition space every day during school hours. You are advised to check the website before your visit for any changes. School groups need to book into the exhibition in advance by calling 01727 890212. A bursary fund for school visits to the exhibition is kindly supported by Stowe Family Law.
Alongside the Anne Frank + You Exhibition in St Albans, there will be a series of talks, including the opportunity to hear from a Holocaust survivor.
