Anne Frank's Iowa Connection - Few know it but the most famous face in the Holocaust had a pen pal in Danville, Iowa named Juanita Wagner. Anne sent a letter and a postcard from her vast collection to young
Juanita. This has inspired the students of Danville schools to launch a postcard campaign.

Their goal is to collect 1.5 million postcards in remembrance of the 1.5 million Jewish children who died in the Holocaust.

It's a great project for classrooms across America to experience. They also hope to get postcards from abroad. Please tell another teacher about this amazing project today and help the kids in Danville reach their goal!

Send postcards to:

Danville Schools - 419 S Main Street - Danville, Iowa - 52623
