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.

THE BEECHWORTH BURKE MUSEUM, BEECHWORTH

GROOMED

UNTIL MARCH 1

Before the plethora of grooming products we have today, from hairdryers, straightening irons, curling wands, scrunchies, clips, mousse, wax and other such essential items. There were simpler rituals conducted by women and men in their quest for greater beauty. The Beechworth Burke Museum is celebrating the time and care women and men put into their everyday grooming routine.  The exhibition offers insight into the accessories, tools and textiles that were used to create that perfect look in the days before electricity. Collections Manager Linda Peacock has found numerous items in the permanent collection all related to grooming and preparing for the day ahead. “We found within our collection a significant number of items relevant to grooming and thought what an opportunity to show how we managed in a time before electrical appliances,” Linda said. “Back then it was a real production to get ready for the day ahead as it was not appropriate to be seen dishevelled in public,” Linda said. The exhibition is currently showing at the Beechworth Burke Museum.

UNTIL MARCH 2

Sam Staughton was born into the life of farming but was naturally inclined towards the visual arts. ‘Wolbunya’, the family property was his working life although he managed a full course of study at the National Gallery of Victoria and a tour of England and Europe before he returned to his family’s farming commitments. Marriage, children and continual farming did not stop his painting passion.  Finally the farm was sold and Sam and his wife Marian and children moved to Melbourne. Sam was painting full time. 

In the years that followed Sam held ten solo exhibitions, almost one a year, establishing himself as a highly committed and well liked artist amongst his peers and industry notables.
