We are pleased to announce our first major exhibition for 2023 - 'Anne Frank: Let me be myself'.
Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank will be at the Academy Galleries from 12 January. This is a moving, poignant and timely exhibition, using text, objects, photos and film to inform visitors about Anne Frank and the Holocaust. It reaches out to young people especially, encouraging them to explore broader issues of prejudice and discrimination that still permeate societies today.
Even if you think you know the story of Anne Frank, there are things here that will strike most visitors as new and revealing. You will come away with a much better understanding of this ardent, aspiring girl, because you will see her as she saw herself, based on the entries in her diary. You will also see her, as she could not herself imagine, in the context of the larger tragedy that was the Holocaust.
In partnership with Anne Frank House, Amsterdam, and the Holocaust Centre of New Zealand. With thanks for the generous support from the Embassy of France in New Zealand and the European Union Delegation to Aotearoa New Zealand.

Tickets available through Eventbrite or at the door: $7.50 per person ($5 for Academy members and children under 12).
