Teacher trainings

The Anne Frank House’s teacher trainings on Holocaust education include working with materials developed by our organisation, such as the graphic novel De Zoektocht (The Search) on the Holocaust and the graphic biography about Anne Frank. In Luxembourg in January, related to Holocaust Memorial Day, trainings and workshops were given to dozens of history teachers and a few hundred students. In April, a workshop day for secondary school teachers was held at the Anne Frank House.

The Netherlands-Poland

As part of the three-year HEEP project (Holocaust Education in European Perspective), made possible by the financial support of the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sports, professionals from various institutions in Poland and the Netherlands exchange information. The Anne Frank House and the Polish State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau have been exchanging their expertise and experiences for several years now. In March, 30 teachers from Poland came to the Netherlands for a programme on teaching about the Holocaust. The Polish version of The Search graphic novel and the corresponding teaching materials were used for this training.

The Polish edition of The Search, the educational graphic novel about the persecution of the Jews.

International

In October, a conference was held at the Anne Frank House on the ‘Holocaust and Human Rights Education’ in collaboration with the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). More than 60 participants from 15 countries shared their experiences and formulated recommendations for the EU.

In December, the Anne Frank House, took part in a UNESCO symposium in Paris on Holocaust education in primary schools. Participants (experts, teachers and officials) were informed about how Holocaust education is approached in the Netherlands and what role the Anne Frank House plays in this.
