The Anne Frank + You exhibition at the County Library Dundalk is turning out to be a wonderful experience for the 17 people who have volunteered to act as tour guides.
The guides are from all walks of life, from all across the county and the organisers of the exhibition have been overwhelmed by their dedication and commitment.
Harry Lee and Tom Kindlon are two of the volunteers.
They went through a training programme and are now dedicating much of their time to working on the exhibition.
“We have an average of four schools a day visiting the exhibition,” said Harry.
“We believe every child should see this exhibition.
“It covers so many things: racism, and discrimination of all kinds.
“It’s something young people can relate to.
“They can relate to Anne Frank in the same way they can relate to Malala Yousafzai, the girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban because she wanted an education.
“I’ve learned a lot. This is a fascinating story about heroism and evil.
The exhibition is at Dundalk branch of the County Library, Roden Place Dundalk.
It runs until 19 October and is open to the public Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm.
Don’t miss it.
