PUPILS are set to become teachers in a special exhibition on Anne Frank (above) at King James’s School, Almondbury, tonight.
The school is the first in Kirklees to host the travelling exhibition which tells the story of her time in hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam and her tragic death in Bergen Belsen concentration camp in 1945.
The Anne Frank Trust is using Anne’s story to teach children at the school about the dangers of prejudice in the modern world.
All its pupils will be working with the material over the following fortnight and are being guided around the exhibition by specially trained ambassadors.
These are Year 9 students trained by Anne Frank Trust staff to take on the role of teacher.
The exhibition is also open to view on a special open evening from 5.30pm to 7.30pm tonight.
