Around Anne Frank’s Diary and the Declaration of the Rights of the Child
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the adoption by the UN General Assembly of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child, the CCManoir presents an exhibition articulated in three themes (to flee, to hide, to be taken), intended to highlight the mechanism that pushes into hiding due to persecution. With the figure of Anne Frank as emblematic case, other testimonies of children, before and after the Second World War, will be exposed and accompanied by documents, personal objects, photos and drawings. This exhibition is open to all.
