The Anne Frank Center USA is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the universal message of tolerance by developing and disseminating a variety of educational programs, including exhibitions, workshops and special events.
The Anne Frank Center USA, a partner organization of the Anne Frank House, is two blocks north of the World Trade Center site. It uses the diary and spirit of Anne Frank as unique tools to advance her legacy, to educate young people and communities about the consequences of intolerance, racism and discrimination, and to inspire the next generation to build a world based on mutual respect.
Since it was first published in 1947, Anne Frank's diary has become one of the most powerful memoirs of the Holocaust. Its message of tolerance, courage, and hope in the face of adversity has reached millions. The diary has been translated into approximately 67 languages with over 30 million copies sold since its publication over 60 years ago. Anne Frank's story is especially meaningful to young people. For many students in America, the story of Anne Frank is their first, if not their only exposure to the history of the Holocaust.
