Exhibits include photographs of the Anne Frank and her family and the other occupants of the secret annex, that they occupied for two years before being betrayed and discovered by the Nazis.
New content has also been developed by the Auckland War Memorial Museum to accompany the touring pieces. This including a diary from the Jewish German-born Egon Schoenberger, who settled in New Zealand just as WWII was beginning. Schoenberger was one of only 100 Jews that were allowed to settle in New Zealand. The diary and other papers were donated to the museum by the Schoenberger family a few years ago.
