Children, Conflict and the Art(s) of Hope

Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 June 2017, 2.30 pm, Bootham School, Bootham

The arts were a lifeline for young people during the Holocaust, helping them both to express their experiences and escape temporarily from their surroundings. Art continues to play a key role today in helping young refugees and victims of war tell their stories.
Join us for an exhibition on the life of Anne Frank and a performance by Bootham School pupils. Developed with their tutor Simon Benson, the pupils’ performance is inspired by young people’s art in response to conflicts of the past and present, and the research of the University of York’s Lisa Peschel from the AHRC-funded project Performing the Jewish Archive.

This event is a collaboration between the University of York, Bootham School and the Anne Frank Trust.
