Anne Frank Educational Center

Center for Political Education and Counseling


Everyone knows Anne Frank – but few people know that she and her family originated from Frankfurt, Germany. Today, the Anne Frank Educational Center is located in Frankfurt, in the neighbourhood where Anne grew up at a young age.

The Anne Frank Educational Center offers political education and counseling, located in the cities Frankfurt and Kassel. We empower young people and adults to actively participate in an open and democratic society. Using innovative concepts and methods, we sensitize young people and adults to deal with and stand strong against anti-Semitism, racism and various forms of discrimination. In our approach we lean heavily on Anne Frank’s biography and the humanist message of her world-famous diary. The Center has also marked the beginning of two counseling centers located in the Anne Frank Educational Center: response supports victims of right-wing and racist violence, whereas the ADiBe network provides advice to people who have experienced various kinds of discrimination.

In our political education we reflect current discourses and conflicts. In June 2018 we reopened the Anne Frank exhibition as a learning lab under the motto "Anne Frank. More Tomorrow”. We want this place to be interactive with debate and dispute. Here we introduce young people to the life and work of Anne Frank. Here they learn to raise questions pertaining to the past and to the present. The learning lab takes young people's perspectives on discrimination seriously and enables them to acquire knowledge and understanding of the past in various forms: They learn about utopia, conflict, resistance. In addition to this new learning lab "Anne Frank. More Tomorrow." we have on tour since 2014 the mobile learning lab “You are right – you have rights!”

In 2014 the Anne Frank Education Center launched the first nationwide creative competition for youth and young adults, thanks to the generous support by William Blair & Company. The first competition was entitled: ANNE FRANK TODAY. Participants were called to artistically examine Anne Frank's fate, her diary and the question of whether young people today are still inspired by her. Since then, the art competition has been held each year with a changing topical focus. In this exhibition you will find a selection of the winners of the years 2014-2018.
