Other components of this year’s forum include a traveling exhibit titled Let Me Be Myself: The Life Story of Anne Frank, and a Iowa K-12 teacher workshop, made possible by the Baker Teacher Leader Center (University of Iowa College of Education)
Additionally, the forum will enhance year-long events leading up to the Anne Frank Sapling planting, which will take place in a public ceremony at the University of Iowa Pentacrest on April 29, 2022 (Arbor Day). Dr. Kirsten Kumpf Baele secured this tremendous honor for the University of Iowa through her work with the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. This living symbol of Anne’s spirit and humanitarian message is the 13th Anne Frank Sapling to be planted in the U.S.
Organized by UI International Programs, this forum is made possible through the generous support of the Stanley-UI Foundation Support Organization, with additional sponsorship from Pentacrest Museums, Division of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Office of Community Engagement, and College of Education.
