Hidden like Anne Frank

July 29, 2014 -- Submitted by Marcel Prins, a reader from The Netherlands, who is affiliated with the site.

In 2010, Trouw, the Dutch former Resistance newspaper, published a number of stories about Jewish children who, like Anne Frank, had gone into hiding, but who, unlike her, had survived the war. These survivors have lived to tell their own stories of going into hiding during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Filmmaker Marcel Prins, journalist Peter Henk Steenhuis and animator Marcel van der Drift developed the survivors’ stories into a cross-media project, Andere Achterhuizen, consisting of an interactive website hiddenlikeannefrank.com, with animated films and a book. Both the website and the book received excellent reviews.

Adventures in Chemistry

July 29, 2014 -- Submitted by Kevin, a reader from United States, who is affiliated with the site.

The audience is mixed, the ABC area is intended for K-2 children, and some the other areas (Experiments, Secret Science of Stuff, the game) go to grades 3-6. We believe this is a very rich resource and we will be adding to all the sections–the ABC area alone has 26 videos, 26 poems, and 26 science activities that can be done at home. For this time of year, many of the activities should appeal to parent/kids at home/camp during the summer. We are a non-profit, with no advertising on the pages.
