During the Second World War, many Jews kept diaries, but only a few of them were preserved: upon detection, personal records were destroyed as genuine historical documents, evidence of crimes. The exhibition will present the stories of six girls - Anne Frank, Helen Burr, Eva Heyman, Mary Berg, Elizabeth Kaufmann and Rutki Lasker - recovered from materials from diaries and personal archives. Interpretation of historical and emotional images from diaries will be the work of contemporary artists.
Autobiographical texts filled with emotions and experiences of youth, photographs, historical artifacts and sound installations, based on the memories of girls, are designed to reveal the theme of teenage trauma, memory and growing up during the Holocaust.
In this cramped space, full of impressions and emotions, an intimate dialogue of personal stories and contemporary art sounds. The exhibition presents works by famous artists for whom the theme of the Holocaust, the nature of violence and the personal memory of the victims, has become one of the central ones. Among them: German artist Anselm Kiefer, Polish sculptor and video artist Miroslav Balka, French multimedia artist Christian Boltanski, Austrian action artist German Nitsch, Russian artist Haim Sokol, Israeli photo and video artist Ori Gersht, avant-garde artist and sculptor Vadim Sidur, and creator self-destructive art ”by Gustave Metzger.
Exhibition “Anna Frank. Holocaust Diaries ”is an attempt to make memory alive, remembering not only fears and losses, but dreams and hopes. In an atmosphere of stuffiness and absurd restrictions, Anna Frank, Helen Burr, Eva Heyman and other girls write about first love, about flowers and beautiful dresses, about a passion for books and knowledge.
Materials from the diaries allowed the curators of the exhibition to reveal the experiences of girls in different dimensions - spatial, sound and visual. The architecture of the exhibition serves as a reminder of the cramped attics and basements, guarded perimeters of crowded ghettos, and hostile streets of their native cities yesterday.
