Public Tours Now Available For The Anne Frank Traveling Exhibit At Ridge View High | Colombia
The Anne Frank traveling exhibit is now on display at Ridge View High School in Richland District Two.
Ridge View is the first school in the district to gain approval for the exhibit. School groups are invited to visit the exhibition during the school day from Monday, November 29. Extracurricular tours for community members and groups are also offered.
Matthew Tinneny, teacher cadet instructor and counselor at Ridge View, presented the exhibit at the school. After taking a Holocaust class last summer with the South Carolina Holocaust Council and visiting the new Anne Frank Center, he decided to involve student teachers.
âIn my 20 years teaching at Richland Two, I have never seen a group of students dive with such enthusiasm and really collaborate and learn like they did in the first training. I know they will do the best job of helping others hear Anne Frank’s words: âHow wonderful that no one has to wait a single moment to start making a difference in the world. If our student teachers can help people hear Anne Frank through this exhibit, I believe the world will get better for the better, âTinneny said.
Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl, is known for a diary she kept while in hiding during World War II. The University of South Carolina became the official US partner of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam earlier this year and is the only partner site in North America. The Anne Frank Center on the university’s campus offers several programs that schools can participate in, including a traveling exhibit.
