The travelling exhibition has journeyed all the way from Amsterdam in the Netherlands and drew a large crowd of intrigued locals as well as many dignitaries.
Hans Nieuwland, the consul of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, joined South Gippsland Shire Council CEO Tim Tamlin and mayor Cr Kieran Kennedy for the opening.
Facilitator of the exhibition Iet Fuijkschot was pleased to have the exhibition in South Gippsland.
“It is a fantastic part of the world and we are happy to be here,” she said.
The exhibition follows the life of Anne Frank, whose Jewish family went into hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam in World War Two. She was later found and died aged 15, and her diary now provides an insight into her ordeal.
The gallery will host the display until December 22.
Two hour guided interpretive sessions for groups are available. Contact Coal Creek for more information.
