"Another birthday has gone by, so I’m now fifteen. I received quite a few gifts: Springer’s five-volume art history book, a set of underwear, two belts, a handkerchief, two pots of yoghurt, a pot of jam, two honey biscuits (small), a botany book from Father and Mother, a gold bracelet from Margot, a sticker album from the van Daans, Biomalt and sweet peas from Dussel, sweets from Miep, sweets and exercise-books from Bep, and the high point: the book Maria Theresa and three slices of full-cream cheese from Mr Kugler."

The Diary of Anne Frank, Tuesday 13 June 1944


Launching our special #BecauseofAnneFrank appeal

The 12th June 2023 marks what would have been Anne Frank’s 94th birthday.  To commemorate the day, we are launching the #BecauseofAnneFrank campaign on 12th June to honour Anne and the way her diary has inspired millions of people around the world.

Anne wrote; “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."

#BecauseofAnneFrank we do just that, change young people's lives and empower them to create a world free from prejudice. However, ALL of our vital work in schools relies on support from people like you. This year, we plan to work with 89,200 pupils across 245 schools, and to do so we need to raise £1.8million.

Please help us by making a donation between 12th and 19th June. Every pound is vital so please give if you can, we simply couldn't do our work without you.

Share how Anne Frank inspires you on social media.
Complete the sentence: '#BecauseofAnneFrank...' and tag us to share how Anne Frank has made an impact on you. 

"Because of an Anne Frank I have learnt how to recognise any form of discrimination in our society. Anne’s story has inspired me to challenge prejudice and to stand up for anyone who has experienced or are currently experiencing animosity" - Ella, 13, Horizon Community College
