Online exhibition and workshop for schools, upon registration.
The TFJHM’s inaugural event will be held at the Valletta University Campus on the 24th of February, 2022. The exhibition will be hosted for one week in Valletta for the general public. An online version adapted specially for the Maltese school students will be made available from the 3rd of March until the 7th of April, 2022. It will consist of an interactive platform where teachers and students can access a virtual tour, including videos. In addition, the Anne Frank House will provide qualified personnel to lecture at the online workshop held for school children.
The Exhibition tells the story of Anne Frank against the background of the Holocaust and the Second World War and it is primarily aimed at young people from 11 to 18 years old. However, the exhibition – provided by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam – invites each and everyone to discover or re-discover Anne Frank’s story and it’s legacy to this day.
Consisting of 34 panels, the exhibition aims to:
- Inform visitors about the history of the Holocaust from the perspective of Anne Frank and her family
- Show visitors that cultural, ethnic, religious and political differences between people exist in every society. In many countries, there are groups who consider themselves superior and deny others the right to equal treatment. Such views can lead to discrimination, exclusion, persecution and even murder
- Challenge visitors to think about concepts such as tolerance, mutual respect, human rights and democracy
- Help visitors to understand that a society where differences between people are respected does not come about by itself. Legislation is, of course, necessary but people also have to make a personal commitment.
In addition, the Anne Frank House will provide qualified personnel to lecture at the online workshop held for schoolchildren.
