The University of South Carolina announces the opening of a permanent exhibition on Anne Frank, in partnership with the museum in Amsterdam, complete with a reproduction of the desk where she wrote her diaries.

The Anne Frank Center is scheduled to launch in September on the Columbia campus with an exhibition and a learning program featuring photos, videos and artifacts.

One room will reflect the famed diarist’s experiences living in hiding from the Nazis for two years in a secret annex in Amsterdam.

The house where the family hid is a museum that, before the COVID-19 pandemic, had received more than a million visitors annually. It is an official partner of the University of South Carolina, providing the university with educational material developed at the museum and some funding.
