The exhibition makes use of images from the Frank family photo albums and quotations from the Diary of Anne Frank.
Each panel displays information about the most important developments of that time: the rise of National Socialism, the Second World War and the persecution of the Jews.
The exhibition consists of eleven panels. Each panel displays approximately fifteen photos as well as accompanying texts.
To emphasise the chronological order of events, almost every panel contains a time line.
Below the time line is the personal story of Anne Frank and above the time line the visitor is confronted with the 'big historical events' of that time. In this manner it is easy to understand the connections between the 'small' and 'big' history.
