Otis Library will host the traveling exhibit “Anne Frank: A History for Today" from January 3 through January 31, 2018 in the Millie and Martin Shapiro Community Room. This exhibit presents the history of the Holocaust through the perspective of Anne Frank and her family. Juxtaposing photographs of the Frank family with historical images, the exhibit shows how persecuted people such as the Franks were affected by the political actions of individuals. “Anne Frank: A History for Today" was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect. This exhibit is made possible by a grant from Chelsea Groton Bank and a gift from The Friends of Otis Library.
An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, January 3, at 6pm, with live music and refreshments. Members of Klezmenschen of Eastern Connecticut, led by Roz Etra on accordion and keyboard, will provide musical accompaniment to Anne Frank’s story. Free and open to the public.
