Anne Frank–A History For Today

Edmonton Public Schools Archives and Museum is hosting an exhibition focused on the life of Anne Frank from October 28, 2019 to January 31, 2020. The exhibit also explores the history of the Holocaust and the experience of Canadian Soldiers during the Second World War.

The international travelling exhibition from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam consists of 34 bilingual panels in English and French that focus on the life of Anne Frank, as well as the history of the Holocaust and the Second World War in Europe. Additional displays are dedicated to the experience of Canadian soldiers.

The content of the exhibition targets Grades 5-12, but appeals to all.

The exhibit runs from October 28, 2019 to January 31, 2020, but will be closed from December 23, 2019 to January 3, 2020.

The exhibit will be open to the general public:

  • November 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2019 from 3-7 p.m.
  • November 11, 2019 from 12-4 p.m.
