About the program:

At thirteen years of age, Anne Frank and her family were forced to go into hiding to escape the Nazis. For over two years, Anne kept a detailed record of her thoughts, feelings, and experiences. One of the top ten most read books in the world and translated into over seventy languages, Anne’s diary has been read by millions and offers a fascinating insight into this tragic era of history.

In 1944 Anne Frank was arrested and later died in Bergen-Belsen. She was fifteen years old.

Come and discover why her words and reflections remain poignant for the world today. Book your class/school into an education program that includes personal testimony from a child survivor of the Holocaust and interactive age-appropriate tour of the Sydney Jewish Museum’s permanent Holocaust exhibition.

The program includes an interactive seminar with a Museum educator, first-hand testimony from a Holocaust survivor and a guided tour of the Museum.
