What if Anne Frank had survived World War II? This topic and other aspects of the question will be subject of a special lecture at The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 6 p.m.
Rolf Wolfswinkel, a professor of modern history at New York University, will present “Anne Frank, The Girl That Never Was,” a special program and lecture that will make the point that icons have to carry so much of the weight of all of our dreams and desires that we lose sight of the person underneath all that baggage.
Admission to the Feb. 21 lecture is $5 for general members of the Museum and students; $10 for non-members; and free to Circle of Remembrance members.
The lecture coincides with the Museum’s current exhibit, Anne Frank: A Private Photo Album, which features more than 70 rare and intimate photographs from Otto Frank’s private family photo album-including many images of Anne Frank.
A 28-minute award-winning documentary film, The Short Life of Anne Frank, is also being shown and accompanies the exhibit. The exhibit and film, free with paid admission, will continue through March 31, 2013.
The DHM/CET, located at 211 N. Record Street in the historic West End of Downtown Dallas, is open Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on weekends from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
