Anne Frank: A History for Today, will be on display at The Selby Public Library in Sarasota from April 19 - May 26, 2017. A traveling exhibit developed by the Anne Frank House of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, uses photographs of Anne, members of her family, and other occupants of the Secret Annex (their hiding place), along with additional artifacts, to show how people were prosecuted by the Nazis and their supporters during WWII.

The traveling exhibit features fifty-six back-lit panels covering four periods of Anne's life - her first four years of life and the rise of the Nazi party in Germany, her family's arrival in The Netherlands and the persecution of Jews in Germany, the role of civic coverage in the face of Nazi brutality, and the Frank family's life in the Secret Annex. The exhibit also covers a fifth period devoted to the impact her diary has had on society since its publication.

Reservations must be made directly through Brenna Wilhm.
