This exhibit uses over 500 photographs to tell the story of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl who kept a diary while she hid with her family from the Nazis in Amsterdam. Anne grew up in Europe amidst the events that culminated in World War II and the Holocaust. Anne was one of millions murdered during the Holocaust. Her story is used as a lens to examine this period of history and the lessons it teaches.
Anne Frank in The World: 1929 -1945 was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by The Anne Frank Center USA. It is presented in the state by the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust. It is currently hosted by the City of Sandy Springs.
