“I will make my voice heard, I will go out in to the world and work for mankind!” – Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, the death of Anne Frank and the end of World War 2. To commemorate these three historic events, the Cathedral will be hosting the unique Anne Frank + You exhibition, a touring exhibition produced by the Anne Frank Trust UK. This thought provoking travelling exhibition explores Anne Frank, her diary and the Holocaust and how they highlight contemporary injustices. Far from being just about historical facts, the exhibition also explores how issues such as racial hatred, the value of freedom and education and how they play out in the modern world.
The Anne Frank Exhibition will be on display in the North Transept from Thursday 23 January until Thursday 20 February.
General admission to the exhibition is FREE. Schools will be using the exhibition space every day during school hours. Please check the website before your visit for any changes to the below.
