The Boone County Public Library will be home to the traveling exhibit, Anne Frank: A History for Today, through April 30. Thirty panels lay out the story of Anne Frank and her family with the broad history of the time period, including Hitler’s rise to power, World War II, and the Holocaust. The exhibit shares Anne’s early years to her immigration, through her time in hiding, all in her own writings.
The Main Library (1786 Burlington Pike) will also host Conrad Weiner, who will talk about his experiences as a small child in a labor camp. Weiner spent three years at the camp Budi, when in 1944, he and 300 surviving prisoners were liberated by the Soviet Army. Mr. Weiner will speak on April 6 at 7 p.m. and again on April 13 at 7 p.m. Please RSVP at bcpl.org or call 859-344-2665.
