The Courage to Remember: The Holocaust 1939~1945, The Bravery of Anne Frank and Chiune Sugihara is an exhibition that traces the history of the Holocaust and looks at the lives of the millions of Jewish people who lost their lives due to the genocide perpetrated by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany. There will be a focus on the lives of Anne Frank, whose life story is known throughout the world, and Chiune Sugihara, a Japanese diplomat who helped thousands of Jewish people escape Europe by going against the orders of the Japanese government and issuing them transit visas to travel through Japanese territory. The exhibition will also include the reproduction of a letter written by Adolf Hitler, which will be on display in Japan for the first time, as well as some of Anne Frank’s hand written notes, along with an overview of the work done by the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance.
