ANNE’S MESSAGE AND OUR WORK
Read here some extracts from our Chair, Daniel Mendoza. You can read his letter in full in our Annual Accounts here
“The world seemed to be an even more troubling place in 2014. Two very high profile incidents, the killing of journalists and then Jewish shoppers in Paris and innocent school children in Peshawar, gave the sense that there is a continuing and increasing threat to people because of their religion, culture, background or beliefs. We read on an almost daily basis reports in our newspapers of increases in crimes motivated by antagonism and hatred against different minority groups.
What was missing from many of these articles were reports of the positive and inclusive work combatting what seems to be an ever-present and growing issue in our society. The Anne Frank Trust has tackled all types of prejudice and discrimination with the aim towards educating and informing but, as importantly, to encourage people to have a positive attitude to those from backgrounds and cultures different from their own. This work is needed as much today as ever and I am delighted to report that we are working with more beneficiaries, in more locations, with greater, demonstrable impact."
Daniel Mendoza | June 2015
