September 13, 2018 to July 2019
The Dallas Holocaust Museum is proud to present the Texas debut of a newly-created special exhibition, Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank.
Let Me Be Myself tells the story of Anne Frank in a modern way, addressing current day issues of identity, exclusion, and discrimination. Anne’s experiences connect deeply with today’s youth as they grow and learn that all actions and words matter.
This exhibition will also feature the United States premier of a Virtual Reality (VR) component from Force Field VR and Oculus Studios that allows the visitor to travel back in time to Anne Frank’s hiding place, the “Secret Annex.” In a one-of-a-kind experience, visitors will be drawn into the world in which Anne Frank lived -- in the shadows of genocide and war.
Free with admission, VR tours are available in 15-minute sessions from 1 to 3 p.m. daily, but must be booked online. Participants cannot be pregnant, elderly, have pre-existing binocular vision abnormalities or psychiatric disorders, or suffer from a heart condition or other serious medical conditions.
Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank is an exhibition visitors will not soon forget.
Anne Frank was one of 1.5 million children murdered during the Holocaust. The Every Child Has a Name Legacy Project will remember these children through research and creative thought. The Project will run in conjunction with the special exhibition, Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank at the Dallas Holocaust Museum. Students can vist the exhibition, learn about Anne and then research another child murdered during the Holocaust.
Submission Deadline: April 29, 2019
