BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — Argentina´s President Mauricio Macri along with the Argentinean-born Queen Maxima of the Netherlands visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.
During the visit, Argentina signed two cooperation agreements to spread Anne Frank´s lessons to Argentinean young people and to promote dialogue and tolerance.
Heads of state visiting the Netherlands rarely make official visits to the Anne Frank House
“The message of Anne Frank is one of hope in the midst of darkness. Anne Frank’s father was able to transform his enormous pain into a vision, committing the world to the struggle for human rights. ‘Think of all the beauty around you and be happy,’ Anne Frank wrote. With affection and respect,” Macri wrote in the museum guestbook.
