Where: Sydney Jewish Museum Address: 148 Darlinghurst Road, Darlinghurst. What: Anne Frank - A History for Today is returning to the Sydney Jewish Museum by popular demand. For the first time, visitors can view the lost Otto Frank letters received by two Australian girls which form part of this mini-exhibition and highlight our connection to this very special story. It is a thought provoking exhibition exploring the life and times of the young girl whose voice survived the Holocaust.

Photographs, letters and excerpts from Anne’s own diaries bring the families extraordinary years in hiding to life, while drawing comparisons with the tragedy of the Holocaust unfolding across Europe.

Recommended Adult Visiting Hours: Monday to Thursday 1pm-4pm. Friday 12pm-2pm. Closed Saturdays and Jewish Holy Days. Sunday 10am - 4pm. Free entry first Sunday every month. Museum entrance fee includes entry to exhibition.
