The Anne Frank Zentrum, run by the German partners of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, is located directly next to the Hackesche Höfe in Berlin’s Mitte district. The exhibition “Anne Frank. here & now” focus on the famous diary and story of the Jewish girl and her family who fled to Amsterdam from Frankfurt am Main in 1933 and hid in a back courtyard attic there 1942 to 1944. Photos give glimpses into Anne Frank’s story, as do interviews with her father, a friend from school, and the woman who helped hide them. This centre makes history vivid, especially for young people, The story is also brought into the present as young Berliners struggle with the same questions Anne Frank raised in her diary. Also in the exhibition: audio modules, videos, and computer stations.
