A major touring exhibition at the Brewhouse has been drawing large numbers of visitors and is now approaching the end of its run.
Anne Frank + You is an exhibition about Anne Frank’s life and times. It also presents contemporary issues, such as racism in football, gang violence in the UK and Malala Yousafazi’s campaign for the education of girls. It brings Anne Frank’s voice firmly into the 21st century, and provides a platform for open dialogue on issues of prejudice and discrimination within our society today.
Drawing on themes from Anne’s diary such as racial hatred, and the value of freedom, the exhibition creates a journey of self-exploration for visitors. It includes:
- Poignant personal photos of Anne and her sister Margot
- Replica artefacts from Anne’s life and the Holocaust
- The chilling genocide tunnel
- A near life-size replica of Anne’s bedroom in the Secret Annexe
- Powerful imagery of the social issues affecting us in modern Britain
Many schools from Somerset and beyond have brought groups of children to experience the exhibition and the small video below provides feedback from a number of students that attended from Year 8 at Taunton School.
The Theatre have also commissioned short film about the exhibition that can be viewed here.
The exhibition is recommended for adults and young people aged 12 and over, and encourages fact-finding, reflection, and self-exploration.
Anne Frank + You runs until the 28 November and may be closed on occasion due to school bookings. Please visit the website for actual timings.
