The Anne Frank Trust has organised a travelling exhibition to inform young people about racial prejudice and encourage community cooperation.
The exhibition includes a life-size replica of Holocaust diarist Anne Frank's bedroom, moving images of the inside and outside of the secret annexe she stayed in and recorded readings from her diary. These are mixed with contemporary imagery on themes of racism, war and freedom and filmed interviews with British teenagers discussing their own views and concerns.
Each host town sets up a steering committee of representatives from its local council, community and religious groups, and the trust trains local volunteers to be guides.
The trust, which has been running Anne Frank exhibitions since the 80s, says this kind of exhibition is the best way to capture the imaginations of young people.
Canon Chris Chivers, organiser of the exhibition at Blackburn Cathedral in May, says: "It brought together a rainbow coalition of Lancashire's citizens. Seeing young Muslims in conversation with a local rabbi, or watching Christians and Muslims wrestle with the horrors of the Holocaust, are images no one could easily forget. They were a window onto a changed community: the community that the exhibition has helped us to build."
