ANNE FRANK EXHIBIT ON THE MOVE
Adding to its cultural and educational programming, City Springs in Sandy Springs will be the new home for the “Anne Frank in the World” exhibit, currently located in the Parkside Shopping Center. Efforts are underway to fund building construction, including an office for the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust that operates the exhibit documenting the story of the Frank family from 1929-45. The late Mayor Eva Galambos, who fled Germany during the Holocaust as a teenager, was instrumental in bringing the exhibit to Sandy Springs.
