From Monday to Friday, BVIS is proud to welcome the Anne Frank exhibition. This exhibition is a globally renowned exhibition which has been to many different cities across all of the continents of the world. It is designed to tell the story of Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl from World War Two, whose tragic diary told the story of her family and the persecution of the Jewish population by the Nazis in Europe during the Holocaust. Her story is a sad one but one that is vitally important in showing the horrors of the time period and for us to learn from them still today. The genocide of over 6 million Jewish people in this time period serves as a lesson for us and makes us think deeply about conflicts of the present day.
Whilst the exhibition will be open during the school day, parents and other members of the public are invited to come and take a look both during the day and in the evening. On Monday the exhibition will open at 10am and will remain open until 6:30pm. On Tuesday until Friday it will open with the school day and remain open until 5:30pm. The exhibition will be in the Secondary foyer area and in the meeting and training rooms next to the foyer which will showcase some sensitive poetry reading from some of our Y8 students and a ‘reflection space’ for people to write down and share their thoughts and feelings in response to the exhibition. There will also be artwork from BIS students on display.
Please encourage everyone to come and see this truly outstanding exhibition.
