Statement12 Apr 2017 22:30
We have taken note of various recent statements by Steven Goldstein, director of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect in New York, in connection with political developments in the USA. The Center is an independent organisation which pursues its own policy. That also applies to the abovementioned statements, which the Anne Frank House has had no involvement with.
The Anne Frank is a museum and an educational organisation. We too see social developments that cause us great concern, including an increase in antisemitic incidents and other forms of discrimination. We stay out of the political playing field, and see it as our task to achieve our mission - combating anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination - through our educational activities.
