In the words of Héctor Shalom expressed during the day: “Encouraging the development of peaceful societies, which defend human dignity and equality for all, calls us to assume the responsibility that Islamophobia is not a problem only of those who profess Islam, that anti-Semitism is not a problem only of the Jews or the xenophobia of the migrants, nor gender inequality a problem only of women. No discrimination or violation of rights is alien to us. Remembering Terencio “Man I am, nothing human is alien to me“”

The tree window and Anne Frank” : Opening night


The one- person play “The tree window and Anne Frank” has finally been performed to different authorities in an especial event that took place on September the 6th. The play is starred by Zoe Hochbaum, directed by Nicolás Gil Lavedra. The idea of the play was designed by, the director of the Centro, Hector Shalom, and the content producer and person in charge of publications of the Centro, Silvina Chemen.

The play tells the story of Eva, a young student, who, in the circumstances of a school assignment, learns about herself, the story of Anne Frank and the causes and consequences of genocides. The proposal shows many of the educative concepts elaborated and taught at the Museum and triggers people to get involved with acts of discrimination and take part in as a protector of the victim.


The preproduction of the play consisted in an intense work of the Centro in collaboration with the director and the producer team. Both the historiographic perspective and the matters taught at the Centro are a central part in the play, which shows the profound work carried out. In the 45 minutes length play, the children will get to know the 4 roles and will be encouraged to get involved to the history of Anne Frank as well as with the discrimination problems and consequences.

The Travelling Exhibitions more active than ever!


In October we continued the tour across Santa Fe Province within the framework of the cooperation agreement with the Government of the province. The exhibition “Anne Frank – a history for today” went first to Romang, along with “Traces of Violence.- Gazes through Gender” to be afterwards exposed in San Cristóbal, this time along with “From Dictatorship to Democracy – Human Rights today”. As usual, each one of these cities counted with successful volunteer peer guide trainings.

Likewise, as part of the cooperation agreement between the Centro and the Education and Memory programme, the exhibitions “Anne Frank – a history for today” and “Traces of Violence.- Gazes through Gender” were presented in Resistencia, Chaco. After a peer guide training the exhibitions remained open to public at Casa de las Culturas.
