Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of the end of World War 2 and the death of Anne Frank, this thought provoking exhibition is coming to St Albans Cathedral on 23 January - 20 February 2020. Ideal for year 6 pupils and upwards, this exhibition offers students the chance to learn more about Anne's life, the rise of the Nazi party in pre-war Germany and also to explore prejudice across the world in the 21st century.

What does the Exhibition contain?

As well as exploring the exhibition, students can also have the chance to take part in additional activities to enhance their learning. This can include the opportunity to take part in a PSHE workshop using the cathedrals Labyrinth.

I think Anne's message is still relevant today because people forget that the prejudice and hate Anne experienced goes on in today's society, and it is something we need to challenge.
