Debate about the “Anne Frank” daycare center in Saxony-Anhalt: No new name for the time being

The Stendal district executives from the Greens, the CDU, the Left, the FDP and the Free Voters appealed in a joint statement on Monday to everyone who supports renaming the daycare center not to do so. A name change is possible at any time, but especially now against the background of Hamas attack on Israel “insensitive and more than inappropriate.” According to the district executives, the story of Anne Frank can also be told in a child-friendly way and integrated into the new daycare concept.

Mayor Brohm thanked them on Monday for the “many constructive suggestions and suggestions.” They would “give the weighing process a new dynamic.” According to the press release, discussions about a name change are still ongoing, “without a decision currently being made.” In the statement, Brohm also made it clear: “Tangerhütte, with its educational institutions and all its civic engagement, stands for a cosmopolitan Germany that is at the same time as aware of its historical responsibility as it is of its educational mission.”
