Our mission at the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect is to utilize the diary and legacy of Anne Frank to help others understand the dire consequences of discrimination and intolerance.
This year we’ve reached over 70,000 children and adults nationwide in our quest to make history relevant to the world today while promoting tolerance and mutual respect. Through our distinctive educational programming, students at the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect learn that the future is in their hands. Anne Frank is a relatable role model for them, helping them to understand the impact of discrimination, the importance of speaking out against injustice, and above all, the difference each individual can make… just like Anne Frank herself.
Thank you for your past generosity… we need your continued support to ensure these important initiatives:

I learned that it’s not just about the history but what we can take away from it – not only the essential goodness in people, but how students can continue her legacy by being proactive, using their voices and not being bystanders.”
