“Let Me Be Myself” – Anne Frank Stichting Exhibition
The Prindle Institute for Ethics welcomes the public to view “Let Me Be Myself,” an Anne Frank Stichting Exhibition. This unique photographic exhibit tells the inspirational story of Anne Frank and seeks to address several important questions: Who is Anne Frank? What are the lessons we can obtain from the horrors that Anne’s family underwent? How do we prevent the repetition of the horrific crimes of the past? Most importantly, the goal of this exhibition is to remind people to never forget the horrors of the Holocaust. Juxtaposing photographs of the Frank family with historical images, this exhibit shows how persecuted people were impacted by the political actions of both individuals and groups.
In addition to guided tours by trained staff members, we also offer two different workshops for visiting school groups. The first “Ethics and Literature” workshop is intended help students appreciate the value of considering different points of view both when writing creatively and when morally evaluating one’s own or others actions. The second workshop is a discussion-based activity aimed to improve moral reasoning skills and to facilitate a conversation about the moral implications of contemporary situations.
This exhibition comes to us from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and is made possible in part by the University of South Carolina.
