On October 16, 19 and 21 Encounters of Schools in Diversity of Culture and Beliefs were held at the Centro. Students were able to present their institutions, their beliefs, religions, customs and different aspects that make up their identity to the students from different schools. They also visited the Museum’s exhibitions and participated in workshops regarding coexistence, schools, and how to diminish violence in the classroom. Lastly, as it is now traditional of the Encounters, we enjoyed together lunch with the students’ homemade traditional dishes.

The Kids' Voice is a nation-wide initiatve

We are very happy to inform that this year’s edition of our Newspaper Project “Anne wrote her Diary, now we write ours: Students who read to learn and write to tell” now has its very own printed newspaper. The 10.000 issues will be distributed among the students of all 32 participating schools from all across the country that collaborated with articles.
Students between the ages of 11 and 13 build a newspaper by writing interviews, surveys, informative articles, campaign posters, games, or jokes, among other genres, that touch upon the subjects of Anne Frank, the Holocaust, the last Military Dictatorship in Argentina, Human Rights today, and diversity and peaceful coexistence. Each school’s newspaper was exhibited at an event on June 12th for the Centro Ana Frank’s Anniversary, and now a merge of all their material is available in a physical newspaper.
