Anne Frank, The Writer
CLIENT United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
LOCATION Washington, DC
H+R worked directly with USHMM’s Director to explore a new perspective on Anne Frank by focusing on her maturation as a writer. Several of her diaries, a notebook of essays, loose sheets and a family photo album left the Netherlands for the very first time. Anne’s world-famous diary—which “meant more to me than dresses”—sets the story in motion, focusing on Anne’s inner thoughts and feelings and development as a writer. The external trappings of her life in hiding are only implied. The project was a design- build, and was curated, designed, fabricated and installed in just six months.
H+R's most recent project for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, our fifth exhibit for them, opened in April 2018 to commemorate the Museums 25th anniversary. Learn more about Americans and the Holocaust here.
