2017 School Calendar

Newspaper project

We are already delivering the 3rd newspaper ´´The kids´s voice´´

“I can shake off everything if I write, my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn: But, and that is the greatest question, will I ever be able to write anything great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer??” Anne Frank, April 1944.”

With a lot of pleasure, we inform that we are already delivering the 3rd newspaper ´´The kids´s voice´´ to participating schools and to their young writers!
The richness of its articles inspire us to reflect as well as they help us to understand the students point of view about such sensitive subjects.

We congratulate all the teachers and students who have been part of this project. We are proud!

This project calls students from 6th and 7th grade and 1st year high school from special education or adults schools as well as schools from all Argentina.

We invite schools from all over the country to be part of this project that put in value the voice of young people about subjects of the life of Anne Frank, Nazism, the military dictatorship in Argentina, Human Rights today, as well as social inclusion, coexistence and challenges.

Assuming the role of journalists, each group creates its own newspaper and, every year, we display the productions in large panels, presented in a main event of Anne Frank’s Birth Anniversary. By November, the project closes its cycle with the publication of a common printed newspaper that integrates pieces from all the group productions, which is delivered in each participating school and spread it to schools from all over the country.

We also invite you to join the 5th Inclusive Literary Contest, for young people from 13 years and adults that belong or have belonged to special education schools
The Literary Contest constitute one of the most emblematic projects of the Center.

From its beginnings, they have been a very enriching opportunity to approach the subjects of Human Rights, Holocaust, Anne Frank’s life, violence, discrimination, coexistence and inclusion, and to encourage young people and adults to become writers, making their voice and their ideals heard.

We hope more and more young people, teachers and adults from all over the country get encouraged to express themselves literally and poetically. All winners writings are published in the book “Texts and projects that build coexistence” edited by EUDEBA.
