Could your school, church or community host the international exhibition Anne Frank – A History for Today? Based on the concept of ‘peer education’ students or other volunteers could be trained as exhibition guides. By asking questions they would help visitors to reflect on the historical events and challenge them to make relevant connections with developments in contemporary society.
This is of benefit both for the visitors and the guides, who receive training in which they get familiar with the content of the exhibition and with its educational goals and methods. They learn how to present the information in an appealing way and they practice how to initiate a discussion with their peers on issues like tolerance and discrimination.
The worldwide tour of the exhibition is coordinated by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam in collaboration with local partner organisations.
