Our education and exhibit experts welcome school classes, civic, religious, academic and lifelong learning groups. We can help you plan a special program facilitated by guest lecturers and experts, with a special guided tour.
The Spirit of Anne Frank Awards recognize worthy students, educators and citizens–bridge builders, peacemakers, innovators and role models–who participate in social and humanitarian programming to engender understanding, equality, and mutual respect among diverse groups.
This exhibit provides visitors with a visual representation of the life experiences of Jan Yoors and his documentation of Roma (Gypsy) history, customs and culture during the pre-war years. These 34 black and white photographs he took of his adoptive family provide a rare and unfiltered glimpse in the life of the Romani.
In 2009 AFC launched the Sapling Project , a national initiative aimed at bringing together diverse communities and educational centers in a shared celebration of Anne, her beloved chestnut tree, her appreciation of nature, and her longing for freedom and justice in the world.
The words of Anne Frank ring true today as a eulogy to this great man: "I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out." His lifelong work to achieve his ideals of social equality and the elimination of discrimination is a lesson for us all.
