Original writings of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most widely read works of non-fiction in the world. It is a story of a 13-year-old Jewish girl and her family who are forced into hiding by the Nazis during World War II. Anne's legacy, however, extends beyond her diary. Between the ages of 13 and 15, Anne wrote short stories, fairy tales, essays, and the beginnings of a novel. Now you can view Anne's photo album and notebooks online courtesy of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The picture here shows Anne's first diary which she received when she was 13.
