THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK EXHIBIT — Veteran's Hall April 25 - May 5
Open Daily and Free to the Public; MTVarts donations will be welcome!
During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands Anne Frank began to keep a diary on June 14, 1942, two days after her 13th birthday, and twenty two days before going into hiding with her mother, father, sister, and four other people. The group went into hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father's office building in Amsterdam. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal in August 1944, which resulted in their deportation going to Nazi concentration camps. This professional traveling exhibit will be in Veteran's Hall - call ahead for group participation to Joann Snow 740-501-0527.
