Topics of the day

This morning, we will focus on Holocaust education. How does one translate lessons from
the past for younger generations? To begin with, we will dive into the history of Anne Frank
and examine how her message is presented and spread worldwide by the Anne Frank
House. We will hear more about what different projects, like Free2Choose, the AFH are
doing to spread their message. Frederick Reicken, an American writer in residence, will
share his dilemmas on writing about WW II.

The whole afternoon will be devoted to Bosnia and Herzegovina. First, with the help of Satko
Mujagic, we will speak about the recent war in Bosnia and it’s impact on Bosnian citizens
today. After spending seven months in different concentration camps in Bosnia, Satko
came to live in the Netherlands since 1993. Afterwards, we will, together with the Bosnian
fellows in our group, discuss the current situation and future of Bosnia and Herzegovina in
more detail.
