Faced with deportation to the Nazi concentration camps, Anne Frank, her family and friends were forced into hiding.





Workshop Description

This workshop explores how “standing together” helped them survive for so long. Colleagues risked their own lives, standing together with the Franks to keep them fed and hidden – and despite the tensions of living in such cramped conditions, the attic-dwellers, too, managed to stand together for two long years before ultimately being discovered.

Exploring: relationships, sacrifice, values, the Holocaust in context.

What is the format of the day?

We will work with you to plan a timetable for the workshops, to suit the number of classes you would like to include - and around the specific timings of your school day. It might look something like this:

9.00 - 10.00: Session 1

10.00 - 11.00: Session 2

11.00 - 12.00: Session 3


1.00 - 2.00: Session 4

2.00 - 3.00: Session 5

Are there any technical requirements?

Your visitor will need access to a laptop/ screen/projector set up in the working space.

Where do the workshops take place?

These are active workshops and benefit from a large open space such as the school hall. A large classroom with desks and chairs stowed away as far as possible is fine.
