The Anne Frank Reading Project is designed with families and communities in mind. Whether you are already familiar with Anne’s words, or are joining the millions already inspired by her Diary, we hope that you find value in collectively reflecting on the Annex at this time of isolation.
This is a project that families and communities weathering isolation can do together. Newcomers to Anne Frank’s Diary will read the book fresh, while participants who know Anne’s story will be provided with external readings and videos selected to stimulate thought and discussion on key themes.
