Anne Frank Center at UofSC

The University of South Carolina is the Official U.S. Partner of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and the only partner site in North America.

The Anne Frank Center on the UofSC campus brings to life the story of the young Jewish girl who – in the pages of her world-renowned diary – documented two years of hiding in German-occupied Amsterdam during World War II. By sharing Anne's legacy with visitors, students and teachers, UofSC’s Anne Frank Center seeks to inspire our commitment to never be bystanders but instead to stand up together against antisemitism, bigotry and inequality wherever it may exist today.


Schedule A Tour

The center will open to timed-entry group tours beginning Sept. 15, 2021. All tours are led by volunteer docents or staff.  

The Anne Frank Center invites schools and other groups to plan visits with guided tours and extended programming on campus. We also bring traveling exhibitions and other educational programming to schools across South Carolina. Email the Anne Frank Center to discuss the possibilities. 

Regular tours are free for UofSC students, and there is an optional suggested donation for the general public.

Visitors will learn about Anne’s story and legacy through photos, videos and original artifacts that represent the experience of her family as they hid behind her father’s business in Amsterdam. To reserve your space for a guided tour or to book a tour for a school or other group, email the Anne Frank Center.
The Anne Frank Center invites UofSC students to get involved as guides to the museum. Student volunteers will receive special training and can enroll in coursework in order to give tours to their fellow students and the broader community. If you would like to consider becoming a volunteer, email the Anne Frank Center about opportunities to get involved. 
The Anne Frank Center welcomes field trips of students and offers a wide range of programming on campus and in schools across the state, both in person and remotely. These programs include a traveling exhibition and peer education program, guided virtual tours of the Anne Frank House, a dialogue workshop called Free2Choose about challenging topics, and video-production workshops for students. Email the Anne Frank Center to discuss what would work for your school.
