International Youth Conference Anne Frank House, Amsterdam 10-14 August 2014 “We cannot change what happened anymore. The only thing we can do is to learn from the past and to realize what discrimination and persecution of innocent people means. I believe that it’s everyone’s responsibility to fight prejudice.’’ - OTTO FRANK Final date for application June 6th 2014 Are you between the ages of 18 and 25? Have you been active before as a participant or volunteer in Anne Frank House projects? Would you like to meet people from all over the world? Are you ready to start your own project?

Anne’s father, Otto Frank, founded the Anne Frank House in 1957 and envisioned to bring together young people from all over the world to meet, create mutual understanding and share their common ideals inspired by Anne Frank. Otto Frank saw the Anne Frank House as a place serving as a warning from the past, building the present and dreaming the future. To honor this tradition, the Anne Frank House organizes a 5-day International Youth Conference, between August 10th-14th 2014 in Amsterdam.
