BIS HCMC and BVIS are proud to be working with the Israeli Embassy to host an exhibition about Anne Frank and the Holocaust.
Almost seventy years ago Russian forces liberated the infamous concentration and extermination camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland. Millions died in the Shoah (also known as the Holocaust). Millions more suffered and survived with the scars - both physical and mental. At first there was doubt and incredulity that such a horrific crime could ever have been committed. It could not have happened. No one is inhuman enough to have done something this insane; this utterly hideous.
The evidence, however, was incontrovertible. The testimonies of survivors; the admissions of perpetrators; the physical proof; the piles upon piles of belongings whose owners had been turned into ash in the ovens of Auschwitz.
One piece of evidence about the horror that happened is not so much about the death camps. It is the diary of a young girl who found herself forced to live in hiding and fear as hate-filled soldiers hunted her.
The British International School Ho Chi Minh City and The British Vietnamese International School Ho Chi Minh City are proud to be working with the Israeli Embassy to host an exhibition about Anne Frank and the Holocaust.
The exhibition includes work created by our students and alumni.
This work is based upon their reflections upon the topic and its legacy, addressing a wide range of moral questions through art, literature, dance and creative writing.
The exhibition runs from Monday 2nd to Friday 6th November, from 4:00 to 7:30pm.
To fully experience the work created by our students, you will need to do the following:
1. Download the (free) kaywa QR reader app to your smartphone or tablet: http://reader.kaywa.com/
2. Bring your earphones / headset
To open the exhibition at 4pm on Monday, we are honoured to be joined by Mr Nissin Tal from the Israeli embassy in Hanoi.
Whether you are able to attend the opening ceremony or not, we hope that you are able to visit this exhibition about one of the most tragic events in modern times and its legacy.
