If your school is bearing the name Anne Frank, you can interpret this in various ways. The most obvious are of course lessons or projects about themes that correlate with Anne’s diary and the fact that as a Jewish girl she was a victim of the Holocaust. It is also possible to link Anne Frank to the identity of the school, for example through the school guide or website.

Anne’s own school

The ‘6th Montessori School Anne Frank’ in Amsterdam is the oldest Anne Frank School. Anne Frank herself attended the school until the moment that Jewish children had to go to separate schools. In 1957 the school was named after its world famous ex-student. On the front of the school is a text from Anne’s diary in her handwriting. In the hall there is a plaque with the names of the 130 Jewish students who became victims of the persecution of the Jews.
