It was in the winter of 2012 that representatives from the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam arrived in Calcutta at the Seagull Foundation for the Arts. The outcome of the visit was a teachers’ workshop and the decision to bring the project Anne Frank—A History for Today, consisting of an international travelling exhibition and related workshops and activities, to India for the first time with Calcutta as its first host.
The PeaceWorks Human Rights Defenders Programmes was developed as a part of the project. The resource ‘ Learning to Live with Difference’ is a resource for teachers to engage high school students in the understanding of human rights, and inspiring them to become human rights defenders.
The resources used include literature, film, performance and visual arts, and the mode of engagement is discursive, analytical and creative.
