WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE DHGC

THE PROMISE

12 JUNE – 12 JULY 2019 

EXHIBITION

THE PROMISE exhibition premiered at the Durban Holocaust & Genocide Centre in 2016. We are delighted to once again open this remarkable story to the public in honour of the 90th birth year of both Anna and Eva.

2019 marks Anne Frank’s 90th birth anniversary. Before being sent to a concentration camp, Anne lived in Amsterdam, where she met a girl her own age named Eva Geiringer.

Both girls with their families had fled their respective home countries (Germany & Austria) and settled in Amsterdam, Holland. In 1942, both families went into hiding but were later betrayed, arrested and deported to Auschwitz.

After the war, Anne’s father Otto married Eva’s mother, Elfriede, making him Eva’s stepfather and posthumously, Anne became her step-sister.
