Anne Frank: A History for Today, through Sunday Oct. 18.
The very well-attended exhibit, presented in conjunction with the Anne Frank House and the Stratford Festival, was scheduled to close Oct. 12.
“It’s amazing to see the scale the project took on at the Stratford Perth Museum,” said Julie Couture, Canadian co-ordinator of the Anne Frank House.
“All the wonderful docents took so many visitors from all ages through the intimate life of this little girl. So many people connected to this story through their own history made this project really special.”
The exhibit opened June 6 and has attracted over 10,000 visitors to the Museum.
“For those who haven’t had the chance to learn more about Anne Frank, we are happy to be able to extend this exhibition at the Stratford Perth Museum until October 18th,” added Couture.
“We’re very proud and humbled to have been able to present this exhibit,” said John Kastner, Stratford Perth Museum general manager. “It’s an important and incredibly powerful exhibit and it will be a long time, if ever, before this exhibit returns to this area. That’s why we are so pleased to have been able to arrange an extension.”

Thanksgiving while the Anne Frank House exhibit is on display. On Oct. 19 the museum reverts to its
