Apart from the story of Anne Frank and the historical context of her time, it specifically highlights the contemporary relevance of the story of Anne Frank.
"Let Me Be Myself" contains seven historical modules. The structure and design of this part of the new exhibition enables visitors to identify with the personal story of Anne Frank.
Large-size pictures show Anne's happy early childhood in Frankfurt, followed by the immigration to Amsterdam and the time in hiding.
In a consequent manner the exhibition connects the personal story of the Frank family with the important historical events of that time: the rise of the national socialists, the isolation and discrimination of the Jewish population, eventually escalating in the Holocaust. The connection between the personal story of Anne Frank and the historical context shows the consequences the anti-Jewish measures had on one particular person.
To emphasise the chronological order of events, almost every panel contains a time line.
Below the time line is the personal story of Anne Frank and above the time line the visitor is confronted with the 'big historical events' of that time. In this manner it is easy to understand the connections between the 'small' and 'big' history.

Visit Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre in November to see our Remembrance Day exhibition for 2017.
This year, the Cultural Services team have put together a display honouring the life of Jack LeCras, Australian Naval veteran and President of the Wanneroo RSL Sub-Branch.
Jack has lived a truly amazing life from witnessing the surrender of the Japanese on board the USS Missouri in 1945, to working in a supervisory role in broadcasting during the Commonwealth Games in Perth and Brisbane. Jack was also instrumental in organising the Wanneroo ANZAC day service earlier this year which demonstrates his ongoing and dedicated commitment to the community.
Visit the Great Court from 10 November to 15 December 2017 to see this wonderful display and see photos and artefacts from his life.
