Papakura Museum is organizing the first-ever nationwide tour of the Anne Frank exhibition. For Papakura District Council’s community development manager Leora Hirsh the exhibition holds special significance. Ms Hirsh’s immediate family escaped Nazi Germany in 1938 and were accepted into New Zealand as refugees while others in the family made it to England through the “kinder transport” system. Many of her extended family did not survive the holocaust.
