Iowa’s Putnam Museum Debuting ‘Anne Frank: A History For Today’ Friday
The Putnam Museum and Science Center in Davenport, Iowa announces the opening of “Anne Frank: A History For Today,” Friday, September 2, 2022. The opening of the exhibit marks the launch of programming in the community-wide initiative called Out of Darkness:
Holocaust Messages for Today.
Out of Darkness: Holocaust Messages for Today is a collaborative effort of cultural organizations, educators, libraries and sponsors working together to promote dignity, diversity, equity, democratic values, human rights, and the power of the human spirit that are so badly needed today. The project includes programming at various venues through 2022. Through music and art, lectures and movies, dance and exhibits, we learn from the past.

The Putnam Museum & Science Center is at 1717 W. 12th St., Davenport.
The Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities is the project presenter and was instrumental in securing funding to support exhibits, live performances and additional programming that is suited for students and adults.
The Federation’s Executive Director Allan Ross shares his gratitude by stating, “This community collaboration would not have been possible without the financial support of many donors. We are especially grateful to our major donors Scott County Regional Authority, Regional Development Authority, Rauch Family Foundation II, Inc. and Joyce and Tony Singh Family Foundation.” The full list of
