Recurring Event - December 1st through March 31st

Anne Frank: A Private Photo Album, Special Exhibit at the DHM/CET; more than 70 rare and intimate photographs of Otto Frank's private family photo album, featuring many images of Anne Frank and her family.

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is launching a new initiative aimed at providing every student who wishes to read The Diary of Anne Frank a free copy of the book, which is a primary resource for teaching the Holocaust.

The Museum's new Anne Frank Initiative will collect and redistribute copies of The Diary of Anne Frank through 2012 to students who are 13 and older at schools that do not have resources to purchase copies. The public may drop off donated copies of the book at selected locations.

Special workshops and programs on the significance of the diary, written by Anne Frank while hiding from the Nazis during World War II, are planned for both students and adults and will be announced in the Spring.

"Ultimately, we hope the Anne Frank Initiative will refresh the reading and understanding of The Diary, enhance the overall education that we can provide to the community, and highlight how fortunate we are in North Texas to have our own Holocaust Museum," said Maria MacMullin, senior director of advancement for the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance.
