Both Pella and Pella Christian classes visited the Pella Opera House on Monday to learn about “The Story of Anne Frank: An Exhibit.” The exhibit has been at the Pella Opera House for nearly one month, and according to executive Cyndi Atkins has been very well received by the community, families, teachers and individuals who have stopped by.  The exhibit shows two timelines simultaneously, both starting right after World War I. One timeline shows current events in Europe and the rise of the Nazi regime. The other timeline follows Anne’s father, Otto Frank, and his family, and continues after Otto publishes Anne’s diary.  The timeline was surrounded by Nazi propaganda, which featured posters and other various media that would have been seen during Anne Frank’s life. Students also watched a short video corresponding with the exhibit.
