FOR STUDENTS

‘LET ME BE MYSELF’ – The Life Story of Anne Frank

From Week 3 Term 3 2021

Let me be Myself – The Life Story of Anne Frank gives students a rare opportunity to reflect on discrimination, exclusion, and persecution today by studying the life story of one of its most well-known victims, whose voice survived  the Holocaust. As the Holocaust engulfed Europe, the Frank family along with four others sought refuge in a secret annex in a factory in Amsterdam. 

The program includes a guided tour of our permanent exhibition, which provides an extensive background to the historical context in which the loss of Anne’s and 1.5 million children’s future took place.
Students will have a chance to deepen and broaden their understanding the events leading up to and during the Holocaust by engaging with the objects and displays in our collection.

Coming together as a class, in a session facilitated by one of our experienced educators, students will examine the relevance of Anne’s story today and discuss the concepts of diversity, identity, prejudice, equal rights and democracy.

Content Warning

The Adelaide Holocaust Museum delivers its Education Program based on the principles of “Safely In Safely Out” philosophies of Holocaust education and our work is underpinned by this educational approach. We aim to teach all visitors about the devastating and confronting events that occurred in a sensitive and respectful manner that respects the victims, and facilitates a safe engagement with the events for our visitors..

Educators are advised that the Museum’s permanent exhibition includes content that some young people may find distressing. If you have concerns, please contact our Education Coordinator (education@ahmsec.org.au) when booking to discuss. We work with our Museum Guides to deliver an age-appropriate tour of our permanent exhibition that also supports your teaching and learning objectives.
