In exhibits

Of all the voices of World War II, Anne Frank's remains one of the most resonant, revived year after year in plays, movies, biographies and now in a new exhibit at Exploris. At her 13th birthday party, Anne Frank received a diary she later named "Kitty" and used to record her years of hiding in the annex above her father's export company in Amsterdam. On June 11, the anniversary of that birthday, One Voice: From the Pen of Anne Frank will open at the Raleigh museum. The 1,500-square-foot exhibit includes a video of Miep Gies relating the day the Franks were discovered; artifacts, such as yellow stars worn by the Jews during the Holocaust; a scale model of the annex; and interactive elements that invite visitor response. The public opening runs from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, and boasts an appearance by Chapel Hill resident Barbara Rodwell, who actually attended Anne Frank's 13th birthday party. Admission is $6.95 for adults, $5.95 for seniors, and $4.95 for children. For more details, call 834-4040.
