The Anne Frank Exhibit
Chestnut Tree Bookstore, Princeton

The exhibit "Anne Frank: A History for Today" will open on April 26 at the Chestnut Tree Bookstore in the Princeton Shopping Center. MCCC's Holocaust/Genocide Resource Center is one of the sponsors.

The exhibit juxtaposes photographs of the Frank family with those of historical events of the time, and shows how persecuted people such as the Franks were affected by political decisions and by the actions of individuals. The story is told through pictures and descriptions of world events during and after the Nazi dictatorship.

The Anne Frank Center USA, with its traveling exhibits, has introduced over four million young people, from communities large and small, to the story of Anne Frank. They predict that more than 1,000 school children will have the opportunity to view the show's 49 panels.

The exhibit will run until June 3 and is open during the hours the bookstore is open -- Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.. School groups will attend mainly during weekdays so plan a visit accordingly.

Local sponsors for the exhibit are: The Mercer County Holocaust/Genocide Resource Center at Mercer County Community College; the NJ Commission on Holocaust Education, the Julius and Dorothy Koppelman Holocaust/Genocide Resource Center at Rider University and the Mercer County Education Association.
