Survivors talk to schoolchildren
Anne Frank
Anne Frank would have celebrated her 75th birthday in 2004
Two German Jews who survived the Holocaust will talk to children at the launch of the Anne Frank Exhibition in Nottinghamshire on Monday.

The travelling exhibition at Southwell Minster focuses on the girl who hid with her family in an attic to try to escape the Nazis in Holland.

Manfred Dessau came to Nottingham as a child. Esther Brunstein survived the Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen camps.

Both work closely with Beth Shalom, the Holocaust Education Centre in Laxton.

The two speakers will talk to 60 children visiting from Thrumpton Primary on Monday lunchtime.

The travelling exhibition tells the story of Anne Frank and her family, documenting their persecution by the Nazis, their escape from Germany, their hiding in Amsterdam and their ultimate fate in the death camps.

It also aims to draw visitors' attention to contemporary issues, such as the murder of Stephen Lawrence, and see the parallels and differences in events.

Anne Frank wrote a diary of her life in the attic. She was eventually captured and died in a concentration camp.

Had she survived, she would have celebrated her 75th birthday in June.
