Anne Frank: A History for Today,’ is an international exhibition that tells the story of the young Jewish girl who gained international fame after the posthumous publication of the diary she wrote while her family hid from the Nazis during the Holocaust. The exhibit is currently being presented by the Museum of Science & History (MOSH) from Jan. 13th through Feb. 12th.
The exhibit opening kicked off with Letters from Anne and Martin an inspiring play that brings to life the written words of Anne Frank and Martin Luther King and their shared hopes and dreams of a world free of discrimination and hatred that took center stage at the Ritz Museum. The Ritz was packed with a diverse crowd churning out ideas, comments and dialogue.
A facilitated discussion followed between the actors and the audience comparing the two icons for their fight for equal rights and justice. Letters from Anne and Martin is connected to the ‘Voices of Hope’ initiative, designed to underscore the dangers of intolerance, anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination, and to help the next generation build a world based on human rights and mutual respect.
