"Anne" – An Exhibit on the Life and Legacy of Anne Frank
The Museum of Tolerance is proud to open "Anne," a new exhibit created by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles on the world of Anne Frank, narrated by Academy Award® -nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld.
The story of Anne Frank is often referred to as a “window to the Holocaust” because it makes tangible the inconceivable nature of the systematic murder of six million Jews, including a million and a half children. Yet the story of Anne and her family has universal resonance.
More than any other single person, Anne Frank—because of the poignancy of her short life and eloquence of her Diary—has come to personify the inhumane wars and genocides that rob children of their childhoods, teenagers of their hopes and promise, and young adults of the possibility of forming families and raising children of their own.
"Anne," a special 60-minute experience, designed by the Yazdani Studio of Cannon Design with films by Cortina Productions and Moriah Films, brings Anne Frank’s story to life through immersive environments, multimedia presentations and intriguing displays. The Anne Frank Fonds of Basel, Switzerland is a strategic partner and supporter of the exhibition. The Wiesenthal Center and the Museum of Tolerance also acknowledge the cooperation of the Anne Frank House, The Netherlands.
