MUS­LIM GIRL WINS ANNE FRANK AWARD

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

A MUS­LIM stu­dent has won a na­tional prize for her poem about Anne Frank.

Maha Sal­man, a Year 8 pupil from the King Ed­ward VI School for Girls in Birm­ing­ham, won the Anne Frank Po­etry prize, spon­sored by the Anne Frank Trust UK, for her work “Hope”.

Maha said Anne Frank had had a huge in­flu­ence on her life. Trust vice pres­i­dent Gil­lian Walnes said that in such trou­bled times the fact that a young Mus­lim had spo­ken so elo­quently about a Jewish Holo­caust vic­tim was in it­self a cause for hope.
