The exhibition has now moved to Lisburn and has been shoehorned into the second floor of Lisburn Library for the month of October.
Looking at the life and death of Anne Frank during the Second World War, the exhibition relates her experiences to contemporary discrimination, exclusion and other social issues facing today’s society.
There’s a timeline of Anne Frank’s life and the Holocaust as well as a near life size replica of her room in the secret Annexe.
Then there’s the material exploring political persecution and injustice, racial abuse, Indifference and responsibility, conflicts and peace, inclusion and exclusion.
Well worth a visit, though the layout is quite cramped and unsatisfactory. Unlike Newtownabbey, there’s no shop selling copies of Anne Frank’s diary, though the library staff will be delighted to get you a copy from their shelves!
This exhibition is open whenever Lisburn Library is open:
- Monday and Tuesday, 9am-8pm
- Wednesday, noon-10pm
- Thursday, 9am-9pm
- Friday and Saturday, 9am-5pm
- Sunday closed
