Concert in the Exhibit 

Saturday, March 29

Most people read The Diary of Anne Frank in high school. Maybe the idea is that young people will be able to connect with the youthful, hopeful impressions of the doomed diarist's situation. But while Frank's emotional world is laid bare in the book, the material world of Amsterdam in the 1930s and '40s--the near, but not too near, past--can be a barrier for the imaginations of students trying to engage with the source material.

With the traveling exhibit, Anne Frank--A History for Today, set to open in Boise Tuesday, April 1, the Idaho Human Rights Education Center is offering a chance to explore Frank's world as she lived in it. The exhibit has been traveling for years, setting up in hundreds of locations each year, and puts Anne's story in the greater context of Europe during the Nazi occupation.

In addition to the exhibit, a musical performance is scheduled for the evening featuring pianist Robyn Wells and the College of Idaho's Langroise Trio, which will perform a series of sets throughout the night, including Eric Sandmeyer's Like a Tree Planted by the River. The trio has been performing since 1991, touring everywhere from their namesake, the College of Idaho's Langroise Recital Hall, to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Only 100 seats are available, so get your tickets soon.
