‘Anne Frank. here & now’
New Exhibition in Berlin

The new permanent exhibition 'Anne Frank. hier & heute' (Anne Frank. here & now) will be opened in the Anne Frank Zentrum in Berlin on 3 November this year. It is the new permanent exhibition of the Anne Frank House’s exclusive partner organisation in Germany. The exhibition will be opened by Dr Hermann Kues (Secretary of State of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth), Klaus Wowereit (Mayor of Berlin), and Wim Kok (Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Anne Frank House).
The exhibition is divided into three parts. In the first section, Anne Frank’s life story is told chronologically, using artefacts, archive photos and photos from the Frank family albums.
In the second part, five young people from Berlin, filmed in specially designed spaces, give their opinions on themes that play an important role in Anne Frank’s diary: Identity, Dreams of the Future, Exclusion and War. Another central function of this area is to create the opportunity to explore various aspects of the exhibition in more depth with school groups.
The diary
The third part of the exhibition attempts to answer the question of why the diary of Anne Frank invokes such positive reactions: why has her diary become so famous? A number of possible explanations are explored: it is positive, it is well written, it is an intimate document of adolescence, and it breaks off suddenly and tragically.
‘This new exhibition is extremely important for the Anne Frank Zentrum’, says the Centre’s director, Thomas Heppener. ‘Anne Frank finally has a permanent location in the German capital. In the years to come the exhibition will form the basis for our educational activities, alongside the travelling exhibition that we have been organising in Germany for years. The new exhibition gives us many opportunities for intensive work with school groups. What’s more, we expect it to attract many more tourists to our Centre’.
