The Anne Frank House develops educational programmes and products for an international audience about Anne Frank, World War II, antisemitism, human rights and discrimination.

As of 2011, the Verwey-Jonker Institute will carry out the research for the Racism & Extremism Monitor Report. The results of this study are used for both our educational activities and to keep us up-to-date about incidents related to racism and extremism.

Free2Choose Create

In cooperation with the Amsterdam secondary school Bredero College, the Anne Frank House developed Free2Choose Create. This is a programme for high school students about conflicting human rights. Students are guided in the making of short clips that illustrate the dilemmas that conflicting human rights can pose. The idea is also to encourage fellow students to have an open dialogue with each other. Thanks to the support of the EU’s Youth in Action Programme, this concept was presented and passed on to 28 young people from 11 different countries during an eight-day conference at the Anne Frank House.

Anne Frank Journal

The Anne Frank Krant 2011 (Anne Frank Journal) with the central theme: Beeldvorming (‘Typecasting’) was released in the spring. This publication is geared to pupils attending the 5th and 6th class of Dutch primary schools. An interesting and fun-to-play game about stereotypes called ‘Wie is Wie?’ (‘Who's Who?’) accompanied the newspaper. This year’s Anne Frank Krant included a special introductory lesson developed for the digital white board. More than 3,000 teachers have downloaded the lesson.

The combination of a game, the Journal and the lesson really works. It provides a welcome change.

Reading & Writing

The exhibition Lezen & schrijven met Anne Frank (Reading and Writing with Anne Frank) was displayed in libraries on the Dutch Islands in the Caribbean. The exhibition opened in October on Aruba. Created for young people ages 9-15, it teaches them about the history of Anne Frank and World War II and about how important reading and writing was for Anne Frank.
