Anne's message and our work
On her thirteenth birthday, Anne Frank was given a diary, in which she recorded
her thoughts and feelings before and whilst in hiding. Following Anne's death in Bergen-Belsen in 1945, her father, Otto Frank, chose to publish her diary in order
to help challenge the hatred that had killed his daughters.
With Anne's life and inspirational message as our anchor, we work in schools, prisons and communities, educating people about the damage caused by all forms of prejudice and discrimination, and empowering each individual to take a stand against it.
A message from our Executive Director & Co-founder
"Anne Frank was a sparkling and intelligent teenager whose life was cut cruelly short by murderous racial hatred. Through our exhibitions, training programmes and campaigns, the Anne Frank Trust, the British educational organisation that proudly bears Anne's name, has been imparting her vision of a more just and humane world to thousands of young people per year, inspiring them to become active responsible individuals. From its small beginnings, the work of the Trust now reaches several regions around the UK, but we know that there is more, so much more to do."
Gillian Walnes MBE
A message from our Chair
"The Anne Frank Trust is a driving force, educating young people in some of the most deprived and divided communities in the UK, with the aim of eradicating prejudice and discrimination and imbuing knowledge and skills to build a firm foundation for their lives ahead."
