Pupils to hear Anne Frank story
Anne Frank
The 13-year-old hid in an attic in Amsterdam to escape the Nazis
An exhibition about the life of Anne Frank is set to tour three County Durham schools.

Pupils will hear about her life as recorded in the diary she kept when her family was forced into hiding from the Nazis during World War II.

The exhibition will tour Sedgefield College, Sunnydale College and Ferryhill Business and Enterprise College between now and March.

It is hoped children will learn more about the conflict and the Holocaust.

Lynne Ackland, headteacher at Sedgefield College, said: "We're really pleased to be hosting this exhibition.

"It's a wonderful learning opportunity for students, particularly those who have been studying World War II."

The schools will also hold open evenings for members of the community to see the exhibition.
