Welcome to the Anne Frank educational centre

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 centre Anne Frank is also located in this neighbourhood.

In our work we use the diary and the biography of Anne Frank as a unique tool to promote tolerance and educate people about the consequences of discrimination and racism. The educational center Anne Frank puts emphasis on human rights and the dialogue between people from different backgrounds, social status and lifestyles.

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.

About us

The Anne Frank educational center is a place where both young people and adults can learn about the history of National Socialism and discuss its relevance to today.

In our work we use the diary and the biography of Anne Frank as a unique tool to promote tolerance and educate people about the consequences of discrimination and racism.

In our permanent, multimedia exhibition “Anne Frank: A girl from Germany” young people and adults have the chance to explore the history of National Socialism in an interactive way, guided by their own interest. They have the opportunity to unravel the individual stories within the broader history.

Our guided tours through the exhibition can be focused on the special interests of the group. As the exhibition is in German, we would strongly recommend that English-speaking groups book a guided tour.

The young visitors can explore the exhibition and discuss topics of interest with the guides. Our guides also encourage the groups to take part in various activities to help deepen their understanding of the issues. In this way, the exhibition becomes an interactive learning environment. A guided tour lasts approximately 2.5- 3 hours.

A further focal point of our work is human rights education and the dialogue between people from different backgrounds, social status and lifestyles. Additionally, we offer seminars, training courses and projects on these topics.
