Anne Frank remains an enduring voice. The story of a young Jewish girl hiding from Nazis puts a face on blurred textbook images of Jews and other Europeans who died during Hitler's reign of terror. Idaho school children will learn more about her and the Holocaust when they visit the Idaho Anne Frank Exhibit, on display at the Idaho State Historical Museum Feb. 9 through March 7. The Anne Frank Exhibit delves into history with 600 photographs and documents, Holocaust sculptures and a scale model of the cramped Amsterdam attic where the Frank family and others hid until they were discovered in a 1944 Nazi raid. "The story has come to represent the millions of people whose names are unremembered, but for their family and friends," said Rabbi Daniel Fink, of the Congregation Ahavath Beth-Israel in Boise. "Anyone who goes in with an open mind and a heart that's willing to be moved, will be moved," Fink said.
