Description

Join us for the opening reception for our newest special exhibition, Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank.

6 p.m. Reception

7 p.m. Program

Our featured program will be a panel discussion about hidden children during the Holocaust. How was this vast network organized? What was life like for a child in hiding? Panelists include Dr. Charlotte Decoster, Director of Education at the Dallas Holocaust Museum, Patricia Heberer Rice, Senior Historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and Max Spindler, a local Holocaust Survivor who spent the war as a hidden child in Belgium.


The Dallas Holocaust Museum is proud to present the Texas debut of a newly-created special exhibition, Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank. This exhibit tells the story of Anne Frank in a modern way, addressing current day issues of identity, exclusion, and discrimination. Anne’s experiences connect deeply with today’s youth as they grow and learn that all actions and words matter.

This exhibition will also feature the United States premier of a Virtual Reality (VR) component from Force Field VR and Oculus Studios that allows the visitor to travel back in time to Anne Frank’s hiding place, the “Secret Annex.” In a one-of-a-kind experience, visitors will be drawn into the world in which Anne Frank lived -- in the shadows of genocide and war.

The exhibit Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank is one visitors will not soon forget.

Let Me Be Myself was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect.
