Closing – Anne Frank: A History for Today

June 8, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education (CHHE) invites you to the exhibit closing of Anne Frank: A History for Today on Thursday, June 8, on the campus of Rockwern Academy at 8401 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, from 5:30-8:00 p.m.

The life history of Anne Frank and her family is the leading thread running through this exhibition. The family’s story is juxtaposed against world events before, during and after the rise to power of the Nazi party. The exhibit includes photographs of the Frank family and the other occupants of the Secret Annex and shows how people were persecuted by political decisions and by the actions of individuals. Throughout the exhibit, Anne’s own wonderfully candid writing provides a central voice to the exhibit narrative, bringing a poignant and truly beautiful perspective to the story. The exhibit, was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. It is sponsored in Cincinnati by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and Sydney Heldman.

Guests will be able to view the exhibit from 5:30-7:00 p.m. At 7:00 p.m. There will be a short program with Holocaust survivor testimony by Dr. Renate Neeman, a child survivor. Like the Frank family, Renate and her parents were in hiding during the occupation of the Netherlands. The Dutch underground placed them separately for safety; Renate was “passing” with false identity papers, while her parents were hidden in a fraternity house at Amsterdam University. All those hidden in both groups survived.
