Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank

January 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until January 31, 2018

Otis Library will host the traveling exhibit Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank from January 3 through January 31, 2018 in the Millie and Martin Shapiro Community Room.  Making its United States premiere, the new exhibition discusses the life and struggles of Anne Frank from her birth in 1929 to her death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1945.  It then jumps forward to the present, telling stories of young people today.  Exhibit visitors get to learn about their individual identities and personal challenges, as well as discover how strangers respond to them.  This part of the exhibition emphasizes the role of prejudice and how this can lead to exclusion and even discrimination.  Let Me Be Myself was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect.  This exhibit is made possible by a grant from Chelsea Groton Bank and by a gift from The Friends of Otis Library.
