New Spring 2024- Anne Frank Traveling Exhibit and Experiential Learning Program

Jewish Studies and the Department of Religion announce the Spring 2024 launch of the Anne Frank House’s traveling exhibit and experiential learning (EL) program at UGA. This initiative will offer an enriching docent training program that will empower students to engage in public service, community outreach, and DEI education.

The exhibit presents the story of the young woman who wrote about her experiences during the rise and spread of Nazism in Europe. Visitors will witness the conditions Anne and her family faced as assimilated Jews living under the dark cloud of Nazi occupation.  A powerful historical lens for viewing modern world issues, the exhibit illuminates Anne's story through a tour showcasing visuals of the Frank House, the attic where she and her family hid, and the circumstances they endured.

 The EL program invites UGA undergraduates to play an integral role in the exhibit by leading guided tours. Students who serve as docents may satisfy UGA’s undergraduate EL requirements. This EL provides an excellent opportunity for:

  • engaging with UGA and Athens communities
  • receiving museum related training
  • gaining experience in peer education
  • advancing skills in historical analysis

The EL has a pre/corequisite of FCID 3500: The Holocaust from the Victim's Perspectives (Fall 2023-Spring 2024) and has been approved for students in Franklin, Terry, College of Education, FACS, Public Health, and Vet Med.  Participants will train with UGA faculty in collaboration with the University of South Carolina’s Anne Frank Center, the official U.S. partner of the Anne Frank House.  This important and timely exhibit, on display at UGA's Hillel house in its new Baxter Street location, will be free and open to the public. 

For more information about the exhibit and/or EL, contact Amanda Walls ( or or visit UGA Jewish Studies on Instagram. 

Every dollar given has a direct impact upon our students and faculty.
