Anne Frank exhibition at Broughton

The Anne Frank Trust UK will be running a programme of Big Lottery funded work in Broughton High School based around the international travelling exhibition, ‘Anne Frank: A History for Today’.

Broughton High School have selected 20 S2 pupils to train as exhibition guides for fellow pupils, members of staff and other visitors. Here are the benefits of participation in this project:

• increased knowledge and understanding of Anne Frank and the factors which led to the rise of the Nazis and the Holocaust

• an appreciation of the dangers and injustice of prejudice, improved attitudes towards people regardless of difference and a greater inclination to challenge prejudice and/or become more active citizens

• an opportunity to improve communication and social skills through peer education and the pupils should gain a sense of genuine achievement on completion of the project together with becoming more confident, resilient and motivated

• enhanced links with local primary schools and the wider community, working in an interdisciplinary manner.

We would like to invite you to bring groups of up to 20 people to visit the exhibition for a tour, which would last approximately 40 minutes. We have various times available from Monday 8th October to Friday 11th October 2012. Please e-mail us at the addresses below as soon as possible if you would like to book a tour detailing your preferred dates and times and the proposed number of people.

To supplement the tour you might want to consider visiting the following page on the Trust website for a simple overview of Anne and her life: http://www.annefrank.org.uk/node/14.

You are welcome to contact us on (0131) 332 7805 for more information, or do feel free to get in touch directly with Heather Boyce, Project Manager, at Scotland@annefrank.org.uk, with whom we are working closely.

We look forward to welcoming you to our exhibition.
