Anne Frank Timeline

commemoration of Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass). In this digital timeline, Anne Frank’s life story is placed in the context of major historical events. This timeline is part of the Anne Frank House’s online offerings. It begins with the outbreak of World War I in 1914 and Anne’s father Otto Frank being drafted into the German Army and continues on to the present-day.

Many unique photos and audio/video fragments are included in the Anne Frank Timeline. Recent interviews with eyewitnesses who knew the Frank family can be seen here for the very first time. In one of these fragments, helper Bep Voskuijl’s son relates how his mother was nearly caught by the Nazis while bringing food provisions to the people in hiding. 

Anne Frank Journal

The yearly Anne Frank Krant is made for students attending the last two years of primary school. Given that the Anne Frank House opened to the public exactly fifty years ago, the focus of the 2010 edition was 'hiding places’. Other people who managed to find a place of refuge during the war were interviewed and seven young people got to see the Secret Annex after hours without other museum visitors. They described their unique experience in the Anne Frank Krant. As a supplement to this year’s issue, schools could order a general knowledge quiz Anne en de oorlog (Anne and the War). With the help of this educational game, students readily learn the basics about Anne Frank and World War II.

The responses to a user survey about the 2010 Anne Frank Krant were very positive. Teachers frequently said ‘Keep up the good work!’  And students were also enthusiastic. They gave the Anne Frank Krant and the Kennisquiz an A+.

Teacher Trainings

Every year the Anne Frank House organises trainings, at home and abroad, to instruct people on teaching about Anne Frank and the Holocaust. The materials used during these trainings – such as the educational graphic novel about the persecution of the Jews: De Zoektocht (The Search), the Free2choose discussion programme and new Anne Frank graphic biography – were all developed by the Anne Frank House.

European Antisemitism Teaching Package

The Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the principal institution of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), works closely with the Anne Frank House on promoting the teaching package about antisemitism. These teaching materials for students 14-16 deal with the history as well as the present-day nature of antisemitism in Europe. The project was launched in 2006 with seven participating countries. By now, fourteen countries are using versions of this material tailored to their own school curriculums. In the past three years, more than a hundred meetings were organised for teachers to familiarise them with the materials. Participating countries include: Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden. 

The Anne Frank Zentrum in cooperation with the Zentrum für Forschung Antisemitism (Antisemitism Research Centre from the Technical University, Berlin), the Anne Frank House and the OSCE / ODIHR organised a May meeting in Berlin for all the project participants.
