Anne Frank educational and Counselling Centre

Frankfurt , Germany


Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt in 1929. Until her emigration to the Netherlands, she lived with her family in the neighbourhood of Dornbusch. The educational and counselling centre Anne Frank is also located in this neighbourhood.
What are the lessons we can learn from the past? How can we act today, when we are facing Racism, Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, Homophobia or Antiziganism? How do we create a society, where everybody enjoys living and has the same opportunity to find their place in society? These are the questions we are working on.
In our work the diary and the biography of Anne Frank help to promote tolerance, active participation in civil society and to educate people about the consequences of discrimination and racism. The educational and counselling centre Anne Frank puts emphasis on human rights and the dialogue between people from different backgrounds, social status and lifestyles. The Anne Frank educational and counselling centre is a place where both young people and adults can learn about the history of National Socialism and discuss its relevance to today.
The programme we offer is aimed at individuals and groups from schools and non-formal education as well as adults, educators, teachers, team leaders and youth workers. In our permanent, multimedia exhibition people have the chance to explore the history of National Socialism in an interactive way, guided by their own interest. We offer touring exhibitions, seminars, training courses and projects. Additionally our Team counsels, informs and accompanies people who are subjected to right-wing extremist, racist, anti-Semitic, anti-Muslim or antiziganist violence.
