Anne Frank… 70 years on

Anne_Frank

Hi Year 6!

Just a quick one – we thought we’d better share another link to a fantastic website dedicated to Anne Frank, since so many of you are enjoying learning about her life and legacy at the moment.

Check out this website.  You can: explore the secret annexe in 3D, view an interactive timeline of Anne’s life and learn more about Anne as a writer.  Take a look at pages from her diary and some more extracts.

Did you know she wrote short stories too?

What an inspiration!

“Of the multitude who throughout history have spoken for human dignity in times of great suffering and loss, no voice is more compelling than that of Anne Frank.”

John F. Kennedy, 1960

 

P.S. Next week, as part of a campaign called #notsilent, we will be recording our own 60-second readings from Anne Frank’s diary (instead of a one minute’s silence), to commemorate the end of her short life.  They will be uploaded onto the website on Tuesday 14th April 2015.

Watch this space!
