Howard Daniel was an avid and eclectic collector.  A true renaissance man, Daniel’s passion to collect inspired his research for writing books and acquiring diverse sculptures and exotic figurines.

ANNE FRANK— A HISTORY FOR TODAY

UNTIL FEBRUARY 28

This compelling exhibition carries a strong message for young people on the Border, with a unique insight into the history of the Jewish Holocaust from the perspective of Anne Frank and her family. Presented by the Anne Frank Stichting (Foundation), this international display uses original images and quotations from the Diary of Anne Frank. It depicts the most important developments of that time, the rise of national socialism, World War II and the persecution of the Jews. It shows how persecuted people can be affected by political decisions and the actions of individuals. It also provokes thought on the consequences the Anne Frank story has for today’s world. A set of teachers’ notes is available to allow teachers to take a self-guided tour of this exhibition. Annelies “Anne” Marie Frank (1929-1945) is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Her autobiography, The Diary of a Young Girl, has been the basis for several plays and films. Born in the city of Frankfurt am Main in Weimar Germany, she lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. Born a German national, Frank lost her citizenship in 1941. She gained international fame posthumously after her diary was published. It documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. Free entry. Open 10am to 3pm. For bookings, phone Bonegilla Migrant Experience on (02) 6020 6912.
