JFKS partnership with the Anne Frank Zentrum Berlin

On Friday, March 13th, the JFKS and the Anne Frank Zentrum in Berlin celebrated the signing of a partnership between the center and the JFKS 6th grade religion classes. The Anne Frank Zentrum is a partner organization of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Its main focus is to promote across Germany the memory of Anne Frank and her famous diary. The activities of the Anne Frank Zentrum seek to strengthen the values of freedom, equality and democracy and combat Antisemitism, racism and discrimination. The pedagogical programs are especially aimed at young people, who are encouraged to become more active citizens, more aware of their societal responsibilities and also to learn to make the most of their freedom to participate in society.

According to the agreement, each year, the 6th grade religion classes will participate in educational programs led by youth leaders who accompany and guide school classes through the exhibition and help explain it in a dialogue with the students. The exhibitions focus on the diary and life of Anne Frank and, via listening stations and portrait films, the dealings of young Berliners with current questions. The  The official signing took place during  an assembly with 5th and 6th graders, members of the JFKS administration and representatives from the Anne Frank Center.
