4 The Exhibition The exhibition tells the story of Anne Frank against the background of the persecution of the Jews during the second world war. The appalling consequences of the Holocaust are the backdrop to the story of a single young girl. The exhibition aims to inform visitors about the history of the Holocaust and to show that differences between people in every society may be exploited to generate intolerance, denial of equal treatment, discrimination, exclusion and even mass murder. To prevent this it is necessary for all to realise that differences between people must berespected and valued. The exhibition challenges visitors to think about the concepts of tolerance, mutual respect and human rights. UCU Northumbria Branch is very pleased to welcome this exhibition and to acknowledge with appreciation the financial and logistical assistance of the University. We recognise that one of the most distinctive features of Northumbria is the diverse nature of its community, and we are fully committed to the underpinning values of equity, diversity, ethical behaviour and concern for the welfare of the individuals and society. As Holocaust Memorial Day approaches, this exhibition reminds us of the need to hold fast to those values. Sue Abbott- Presentation for Northumbria Conference September 2008
