About the Anne Frank Youth Leadership Team:

As part of the Anne Frank: A History for Today exhibition, the MAG recruited through local High Schools and Regional School Divisions to engage youth in the exhibition.  Over thirty students from Notre Dame RD and Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School committed to the project. 

This project has two parts:

  1. The youth were trained by the Educators from the Anne Frank House to lead tours for our visitors. 
  2. We invited the students to make a creative response to the Anne Frank Story, the Holocaust and racism today.

The creative responses were works of art, song performances and iPhone videos.  All of these works represents their personal response to the subject.
