Anne Frank -- Her Life in Letters
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, March 23, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Anne Frank - her life in letters is about Anne Frank as a correspondent. We know that Anne Frank wrote her diary in the form of letters. Less well known is that, prior to the diary, she often wrote postcards and letters to family and friends. Some twenty of these letters have recently been made available to the Anne Frank House by Anne's cousin Buddy Elias and the Anne Frank-Fund in Basle specially for this exhibition. This is the first time that the original letters will be shown to the public. Like her diary letters, Anne's childhood correspondence tells the tale of a girl who - against the backdrop of a wartime city - grew from a letter-writer in the Rivierenbuurt, a district in south Amsterdam, into a world-famous author.
