We have commemorated the Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity

Schools all together

This month,we have celebrated two new editions of our School Meetings in the Diversity of Cultures and Beliefs, along with more than 150 students of primary and secondary school as well as special education students from the City and Province of Buenos Aires.

The participating students presented their projects to the other schools and the particularities of their educational institution through different visual resources. Furthermore, they visited the museum halls and worked in small heterogeneous groups the dangers of discrimination, the value of coexistence and the different roles we can assume in violence situations.

We especially thank to schools: Words of Ezeiza, Integral Institute of Education, Michael Ham College, Alberto Schweitzer Institute, Puentes School and San Luis Gonzaga College for the great commitment and enthusiasm they assumed in their participation.

The Anne Frank Center organizes the School Meetings in the Diversity of Cultures and Beliefs every year. The main objective is to generate a lived experience of students and teachers, calling for the reflection and the valorization of cultural identities and the construction of coexistence in diversity.

Target audience: 6th and 7th grade elementary students, 1st to 6th grade high school students and special education schools.

Training Workshop for the winners of the Inclusive Literary Contest

During the workshop

On October 21st, we held a training workshop for the winners of the Inclusive Literary Contest. The young people who participated, made interactive workshops in which they approached conceptual contents connected with the history of Anne Frank and Nazism, supported by the timeline that is presented in the permanent exhibition. They also participated in proposals related to experiences about discrimination and the role of the guides, as well as the implications of them.

After the workshop, they received diplomas which accredited their role as guides.

Over the next few months and next year, they are invited to lead their own schools, as also special education schools. Definitely, it was a day of reflection, exchange and empowerment for young people.
