‘Let Me Be Myself’ – The Life Story of Anne Frank

4 September – 29 October 2020

Travelling exhibition // FREE

On display in the Caldwell Gallery.


Imagine spending years in hiding because of prejudice and hate. Developed by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and viewed by more than 10 million people in 80 countries, this exhibition explores what life was like for Anne Frank and her family.

Using the family’s experience to explore events in war-torn Europe and the Holocaust, the exhibition asks each visitor to consider what they might do in similar circumstances. It encourages visitors to consider themes of identity, prejudice and discrimination through contemporary stories of six young people coping with the challenges of being different from their peers.

This exhibition was created by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and brought to New Zealand by The Holocaust Centre of New Zealand
