Anne Frank exhibition in city from Saturday

A weeklong travelling exhibition 'Anne Frank - a history for today' will go on display at the Liberation War Museum in the city on Saturday.


Foreign Minister AH Mahmood Ali and Ambassador of the Netherlands to Bangladesh Leoni Cuelenaere will jointly open the exhibition, a project of the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


Organisers said students, teachers and the general public can visit the exhibition which has been translated into Bengali until January 27.


Linked to the exhibition the documentary 'A Short Life of Anne Frank', dubbed in Bengali, will be screened.


The international travelling exhibition 'Anne Frank- a history for today' places the story of the life of Anne Frank against the background of the Holocaust, with extracts from the diary of Anne Frank and photos of the Frank family forming a unifying theme.


The main aim of the exhibition, the organisers said, is to show the visitor that differences between people exist in all societies (cultural, ethnic, religious, political or otherwise) and to challenge the visitor to think about such social basic values as tolerance, mutual respect, human rights, and democracy.


The realisation of the Anne Frank exhibition and educational project have been made possible with the financial help of the Dutch Embassy in Dhaka, the Bangladesh Embassy in The Netherlands, the Liberation War Museum and Counter Foto, Dhaka.


Counter Foto has also assisted with the coordination and logistics of the Anne Frank exhibition and related educational activities.
