Liverpool is unveiling an exhibition on Saturday dedicated to the Jewish teenager Anne Frank, placing a reconstruction of her bedroom in Amsterdam beneath the towering arches of Liverpool's neo-Gothic Anglican cathedral. Organizers hope using a church to house a replica of the room where Frank wrote her diary will demonstrate tolerance in a city afflicted by gang violence and gun crime. The exhibition, near the main entrance, is part of a series of commemorations this month in Liverpool to mark the Holocaust. "(The exhibition) conveys a powerful message of hope from Anne Frank's diary in a world that needs it," Canon Anthony Hawley told The Associated Press on Friday. Organizer Jerry Goldman acknowledged that he had reservations about placing the replica in a church. The city's Jewish elementary and high schools have banned its Jewish pupils from participating.
