Moving Made Easy

Anne Frank Exhibition launches in Australia on 4th February

Anne Frank’s diary has become a symbol of World War II history and literature, inspiring millions around the world. More than one million people visit the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam each year.

The travelling exhibition, which has reached 55 countries, has been significantly developed since it was in Australia 10 years ago.

Chairman of the Anne Frank Exhibition Australia, Boyd Klap, recently held the exhibition in New Zealand, estimating that 200,000 people came to see it, including 50,000 children.

“It’s been incredibly successful. I thought it would only be there three or six months but it had four years,” he says.

Visitors can interact with features in the exhibition to learn about Anne Frank, the holocaust and World War II and see how this important history continues to shape the world today.

“I think the exhibition has a message for everybody,” Boyd said. “But to me the most important message is for young people, because we don’t want the story to be forgotten,” he says.

“Young people must know the importance of us treating each other right, of equality and human rights.”

Two Men And A Truck is sponsoring the exhibi8on alongside Rabobank, Randstad, Canon and the Dutch Embassy, and will also transport the exhibition between museums in Australia.

The dates and loca8ons for the exhibition thus far are below:
