In 1995, a traveling exhibit on Anne Frank drew in tens of thousands of visitors from across Idaho. This overwhelming interest sparked the idea for a more permanent tribute. Over the course of the next several years, a group of community leaders, human rights stalwarts, and citizens throughout the state and country worked tirelessly to bring the Memorial to life.
Located along the Greenbelt in downtown Boise, the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial opened in 2002 as an educational park designed to actively engage visitors to think, to talk with one another, and to respond to the human rights issues we face in our community, our country and our world.
Both the triumphs and tragedies of the human story are on display, but in every quote and every idea, we see the profound power of a single voice or bold action to overcome great odds and alter the course of history.
This world-class park, which has been profiled in several national publications including the National Geographic book Etched in Stone: Enduring Words from Our Nation’s Monuments, is the only Anne Frank Memorial in the United States, one of the few places in work where the full Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is on public display, and is recognized as an International Site of Conscience.
