HISTORIC EXHIBIT ON DISPLAY AT GOVERNMENT CENTER

HISTORIC EXHIBIT ON DISPLAY AT GOVERNMENT CENTER

          Thirty-five panels that tell the story of Anne Frank will be on display to the public at the Doña Ana County Government Center Wednesday, Feb. 6. 
          The panels are part of the “Anne Frank: A History for Today” exhibit that has been displayed in more than 40 countries to date. Wednesday’s stop at the government center is thanks, in part, to the Albuquerque-based nonprofit New Mexico Human Rights Project. Students at New America High School will serve as tour guides for the exhibit. 
           Visitors of the exhibit will be able to see the historical timeline of Frank’s family life in Nazi Germany, including photographs of Anne Frank’s childhood in Amsterdam during the rise of the Nazis, the persecution of the Jews, and its historical impact.
           The display will be open to the public during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. After Wednesday, it will travel to Las Cruces High School for a one-day display on Thursday and finally Alma d’Arte High School on Friday, Feb. 8.
