“Let Me Be Myself – The Life Story of Anne Frank” at The Nelson Provincial Museum
Imagine spending two years in hiding because of prejudice and hate. Our new exhibition ‘Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank’ looks at the life and struggles faced by a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl during World War Two.
“Let Me Be Myself – The Life Story of Anne Frank” has been created by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and brought to New Zealand by the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand. It has been viewed by more than 10 million people in 80 countries.
‘Let Me Be Myself’ explores the story of Anne Frank from her birth, to her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Featuring large scale images about the world around her, the persecution of the Jews and the Second World War, this exhibition connects Anne Frank’s life story with the present and the role of prejudice, exclusion and discrimination.
Let Me Be Myself is open from 2 July – 12 September and is free for Nelson Tasman residents.
