LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Gov. Jerry Brown Monday joined the Museum of Tolerance as it opened “Anne”, a new exhibit about Anne Frank.

The Grand Opening ceremony began at 11:30 a.m. at the museum at 9786 W Pico Blvd.

The exhibit was created by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the museum. The 60-minute experience, which includes multimedia presentations and displays, is narrated by Academy Award-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld.

“Anne Frank never chose her fate, but destiny placed in her hands the memory of all the victims who perished,” said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.   “Through her diary, so full of the innocence of a young child with unfulfilled dreams and hopes, we are left only to imagine what the world lost by the millions we never knew.”

The event is open Sunday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
