Podcast 14: Anne Frank + YOU – the exhibition

This podcast focuses on Bristol’s very successful hosting of the “Anne Frank + You” touring exhibition. Hear from volunteer presenters Javed and Brendi, who both volunteered as guides for the exhibition, as they share their experiences and thoughts on how this tragic story of the past is still relevant today.

This last week of May sees the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) release a report on discrimination against Muslims in the EU. These findings are part of the first ever EU-wide survey on immigrant and ethnic minority groups’ experiences of discrimination and racist crime, or EU MIDIS for short.

Islamophobia and anti-Semitism are issues which greatly concern our Jewish and Muslim friends, especially in the context of Word War Two Nazi-era atrocities against so many communities across Europe. With this in mind, our latest podcast focuses on Bristol’s very successful hosting of the “Anne Frank + You” touring exhibition. Co-presenters Javed and Brendi, who both volunteered as guides for the exhibition, share their experiences and thoughts on how this tragic story of the past is still relevant today, inspiring people to confront and work through so many of our societies’ own modern challenges.
