Anne Frank, The Writer

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
