"Just as we thought, Mr Dussel is a very nice man. Of course, he didn’t mind sharing a room with me; to be honest, I’m not exactly delighted at having a stranger use my things, but you have to make sacrifices for a good cause, and I’m glad I can make this small one. ‘If we can save even one of our friends, the rest doesn’t matter,’ said Father, and he’s absolutely right"

Ambassadors visit Amsterdam

Youth Empowerment Programme: Our Ambassadors visit Amsterdam 

In the October half term 16 Anne Frank Ambassadors from across England and Scotland travelled to Amsterdam for a 3-day study trip. 

The aim of the trip was to immerse the young people in the history of the Holocaust and enable them to gain a deeper understanding of Anne Frank's story and the dangers of antisemitism.

During the trip they visited the Anne Frank House, participated in workshops delivered by the House's own Anne Frank Youth Network and were taken on a memory walk, featuring prominent locations and memorials to the Holocaust. 

Mabel was one of the young people who went to Amsterdam. She says:

"This trip showed me how important the Anne Frank Trust is. We have united all these students together from all over with a common passion for learning and challenging prejudice. It's inspirational and makes me hope for a better future"

In our next newsletter we will share a blog from one of our Ambassadors, talking about this important educational trip in their own words.

One donation, twice the impact

We are taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge again!

Last year you helped to make our Christmas Challenge a big success, not only allowing us to hit our target but to surpass it. 

Just like last year, every time you give between 12pm on 29th November and 12pm on 6th December your money will be doubled, at no extra cost to you.

£5 becomes £10, £50 becomes £100 and it all makes a big difference, funding our anti-prejudice education programmes in schools across the UK.

Our CEO visits Israel

Anne Frank Trust CEO reflects on recent study trip to Israel

Tim Robertson recently returned from a 4-day study trip organised by the Council for Christians and Jews, which aims to facilitate learning about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

He says:
“It has been an immense privilege to make my first visit to Israel through a learning journey with a diverse group of Christians, Jews and Muslims. Meeting people with widely diverging first-hand experience of this intensely complex situation, all of us were moved by the pain and fear on both sides, and inspired by some remarkable initiatives for peace. Among lots of learning for me personally, I was reminded how urgently the world needs to acknowledge and overcome antisemitism.”
