Anne Frank: A History for Today
The History for Today exhibition has been travelling around 10 secondary schools across the district that are involved in the Stand up, Speak out, Make a Difference programme.
The exhibition presents the story of the Frank, and concurrently the wider picture across Europe in the 1930s and 40s.
“We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same”. Anne Frank
The exhibition challenges its audience to find the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust, allowing the audience to see how racial intolerance and hatred can begin, and the steps we can take as to stop this from happening in the future.
The story of Anne Frank is used on the programme to promote student voice, getting young people to think about how we can use events in the past to make a difference today, by challenging prejudice, discrimination and intolerance.
The exhibition is currently based at Dixon’s City Academy until Friday 30th January, if you would like to arrange to take a group of students to visit, and be guided around by student ambassadors on the programme at Dixon’s, please contact
