The Anne Frank Trust UK

Using education to create a society safe from prejudice and discrimination

CHANGING ATTITUDES

Using Anne Frank’s life and diary as a starting point, we empower young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to challenge all forms of prejudice and discrimination. In doing so, we partner with schools, local authorities, the criminal justice sector and others to deliver educational programmes alongside acclaimed exhibitions to young people in a variety of settings.

Learning about Anne Frank has made me a lot more open-minded…in that I’m willing to meet new people maybe outside of my culture, my race. So, for example, my friendship group in school, I might make an effort to talk to people I haven’t spoken to before.

Becoming a peer guide has made me think a lot about how you shouldn’t just judge someone because of their ethnicity, race or religion. Just because you are different doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be treated justly and fairly.

I’m now able to challenge prejudice and discrimination when I am confronted with it. I always try to help others who don’t understand, and I challenge those who do understand, but still spread hatred.
