Louth County Libraries are currently seeking volunteers to act as guides during the upcoming exhibition ‘Anne Frank + You’. The exhibition will run in Dundalk Branch Library from September 17 - October 19 and is suitable for those aged ten years and over.
Anne Frank is one of the most renowned victims of the Holocaust. She gained international fame posthumously following the publication of her diary which documents her experiences in hiding during the German occupation of Holland in World War Two.
Anne Frank + You is presented by the Anne Frank Trust UK and takes a historical and contemporary look at her story. The exhibition is split into themes that are still relevant in today’s society such as nationalism, human rights, identity, racism, personal responsibility and moral courage.
It also puts Anne’s experiences of war, dictatorship, racism and identity in the context of a teenager’s experience today.
At its heart is an almost full size replica of Anne’s bedroom in hiding.
The volunteer exhibition guides will point out key milestones in the life of Anne Frank and explain to visitors the themes of the contemporary panels. This is an opportunity for young people, college students, retired people and anyone with an interest in history to be a part of this renowned exhibition. Some training will be given in advance.
To register your interest or for more information please contact Amanda Branigan at Dundalk Branch Library on 042-9324321 or email Libraryhelpdesk@louthcoco.ie.
