In celebration of what would have been Anne Frank's 90th birthday, the University of Arkansas-Pulaski Technical College is hosting a panel discussion on Wednesday, June 12 at 6 p.m. in the CHARTS Theater. The panel will coincide with the touring exhibitions "Anne Frank: A Private Photo Album" and "Anne Frank: A History for Today." The two exhibits will be on display through June 29.
The panel will be moderated by Jewish Federation of Arkansas Executive Director Marianna Tettlebaum and panelists include Holocaust survivor Aniko Diamant, Dr. Dorian Stuber, Hendrix professor Isabelle Peregrin Odyssey and Rabbi Yosef Kramer.
"Anne Frank: A Private Photo Album" explores Anne's life through photos taken of her before she went into hiding in 1942. After the Holocaust, her father Otto returned to Amsterdam and discovered family photos and albums, which will be on display in the Windgate Gallery.
"Anne Frank: A History for Today" dives into the political decisions and historical events that occurred during the Holocaust. The exhibit consists of large freestanding panels with photographs and text in English and Spanish, illustrating the concrete consequences of National Socialism for one particular Jewish family.
The exhibitions and panel discussion are free and open to the public. For more information, visit the CHARTS website.
