The Anne Frank Schools Programme

The Anne Frank Trust draws on the power of Anne Frank’s life and diary to challenge prejudice and reduce hatred in our communities today. Since 2007 we have worked throughout the Bradford district with numerous schools in conjunction with Children’s Services Diversity and Cohesion team.

We are currently running a project funded by BIG Lottery and are looking for one final Bradford Secondary School to take part in the programme.

Over a two week period we bring our exhibition Anne Frank: A History for Today to school.  The exhibition explores Anne’s story and the history of the Holocaust.  We train a group of students to become peer guides to guide other young people around the exhibition using the strength of peer education to discover and discuss the Holocaust and to explore Anne’s message of hope in the face of adversity. 

In parallel to the exhibition we deliver a range of workshops that complement the exhibition around themes including prejudice and discrimination, human rights, responsibility and identity.

Following the in-school programme, we invite those students who have been inspired by Anne’s message during their time as exhibition guides to become Anne Frank Ambassadors. These students will join a growing and dynamic network of Ambassadors around the country who volunteer to spread Anne’s story and message of hope to primary schools in their local community.

This programme is free-standing and wholly comprehensive. We can bespoke the programme to meet the needs of your students, and your school’s context. We work closely with you to deliver the programme at a time and place that suits you, and help you and your students to get the most out of the programme.

The programme has subject links to History, particularly the nature and impact the Holocaust, as well as English, RE, Citizenship, PSHE. The programme also links to your students’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development.
