Anne Frank Memorial Statue Edmonton

Join us as we bring Anne Frank to Edmonton's Light Horse Park in Summer 2020!!. As part of the Celebrations to honour the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands; the Dutch Canadian Club Edmonton is planning to donate a statue of Anne Frank to the Light Horse Park renovation.  The original 1960 version of this Anne Frank Statue is in the Dutch city of Utrecht.  The same mold and form will be used to make our bronze our copy of the statue. It will be placed in spot of prominence in Light Horse Park in Edmonton's Old Strathcona. The statue will be added to the renovations planned for 2020.

Anne Frank has been a symbol of peace and hope around the world.  Ever since her diary was found and shared around the world; we got to see a glimpse of what war was like through her writings. We thought bringing this wonderful statue to Edmonton, this would be a fitting way to remind people young and old of the tremendous sacrifices made for our freedom.  A freedom for which the Dutch are forever grateful to Canada and the Canadian Soldiers who liberated the country. In order to make this memorial project a success our goal is to raise $75,000 CDN. This will cover all costs related to the project.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me and all the Dutch people in Edmonoton as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands. Tax Receipts can be issued if required.
