Anne Frank exhibit in Novato

An exhibit honoring the life and legacy of Anne Frank is now open in Novato. Titled “Anne Frank — No More Scapegoats,” the exhibit, say organizers, connects the life and times of Anne Frank with the challenge to confront racism and intolerance today.

The exhibit, which has been on display in the Bay Area before, consists of works by Bay Area artists on the theme of diversity. Included will be art by school children and some of Evy Eisen’s photos of Bay Area-based Holocaust survivors.

In addition, friends of the Anne Frank family will speak about their Holocaust-era experiences and offer training for people interested in becoming docents for the exhibit. Among those guests, Laureen Nussbaum was a good friend of Anne Frank’s older sister, Margo. Cor Suijk was a close friend with Otto Frank, Anne’s father. They will be on hand 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 27.

“Anne Frank – No More Scapegoats” is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends, April 1 through June 30, at YMCA/Novato, in Hangar No. 5, Hamilton Landing. Admission is free. Information: (415) 459-9622.
