What do young people learn?
The Anne Frank Schools Programme takes the poignant messages of Anne’s life and diary and helps students understand the damage caused by prejudice and hatred. It helps young people:
- Increase their knowledge of Anne Frank and the Holocaust.
- Understand the consequences of unchecked prejudice and discrimination.
- Explore, understand, respect and celebrate cultural diversity.
- Learn more about themselves and their local community.
- Increase their confidence, as they develop their literacy and presentation skills.
- Develop respect for others.
The Anne Frank Schools Project
Anne Frank: a history for today exhibition
Over a two-week period, we bring the acclaimed exhibition Anne Frank: A History for Today to your school. The exhibition explores Anne's story and the history of the Holocaust.
See below for our 'History for Today' exhibition in action. Special thanks goes to the Great Crosby Primary School for creating the short film after having hosted the exhibition.
We train students to become Peer Guides
They will then guide other young people around the exhibition, gaining an indepth knowledge of the story of Anne Frank as well as a sense of achievement.
We deliver workshops to students on themes Relevant to the exhibition
- Understanding Prejudice
- Responsibility and Resistance
- The Historical Context of the Holocaust
- Human Rights
- Identity and Diversity
Workshops can fit into any school timetable. You can choose workshops to suit the needs of students.
we hold a closing ceremony
This is optional and where possible we arrange for a Holocaust survivor to speak to students.
Peer Guides can then apply to the Anne Frank Ambassadors programme
The programme is designed to share the messages of Anne’s story within their local communities and empowers participants giving them key skills.
