Anne Frank exhibit opens at Louisville library

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – An exhibit featuring family photographs of Anne Frank has opened at Louisville Free Public Library and continues through Feb. 27.

The exhibit includes 71 photographs from Frank family albums. The library says many of the photos are rarely shown to the public.

Along with the exhibit “Anne Frank: A Private Photo Album,” the library is offering programs related to Anne Frank, the Holocaust and World War II.

Among the programs is a course on the Holocaust facilitated by St. Francis of Assisi teacher Fred Whittaker, who has trained at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial and at Yad Vashem in Israel. Weekly segments will be led by guest instructors, including a Holocaust survivor and an authority on the resistance movement.

A program called “Rebellion of Hope” will be offered on Jan. 31.
