Learn about how a Jewish girl’s experiences in the Holocaust have had a redemptive and healing effect in some of the world’s most violent regions. How has Anne Frank succeeded in bringing together those from different sides in intractable conflicts and breaking down deeply held prejudices against ‘the other’? How has Anne Frank given young people in some of the poorest and most challenging regions aspiration and hope for their own futures? Gillian Walnes Perry is co-founder and honorary Vice President of the Anne Frank Trust UK. Sponsored by The Grotta Fund for Senior Care of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ.
