The complete scholarly edition of Anne Frank's writings including her diary and new material never before brought to light

About the Author

As the sole surviving member of his family and sole heir to his daughter Anne, Otto H. Frank established the ANNE FRANK FONDS (AFF) in Basle, Switzerland in 1963, appointing it as his legatee. Since Otto Frank's death in 1980, the AFF acts as his executor, with the aim of disseminating and protecting from wrongful exploitation his daughter's writings. Anne's diaries are registered under UNESCO's Memory of the World programme.

Reviews

A magisterial edition ... one of the virtues of The Collected Works is that it allows readers to track the evolution of the diary across its different incarnations ...The Complete Works thus gives a greatly enriched picture, and, as one reads its pages, one cannot help thinking of what Anne might have become. * Bart van Es, Author of The Cut Out Girl, Guardian *
An astonishing volume contextualising the significance of writing for Anne's spiritual and practical survival, and inscribing her words in time. * New Statesman *
Reveal[s] the German-born Frank as a complex human being, as much aware of her own flaws as of those around her * Wall Street Journal *
Anne rewrote her diary with the intention of having it published as a book, entitled The Secret Annexe (Het Achterhuis). While working on her diary, she also wrote some short stories, as well as memories of her school life, and sketches of her family and friends. Published for the first time in The Collected Works, they show a fledgling talent [...] We will never know how her writing would have developed. But the diary [...] is a remarkable literary achievement. * Times Literary Supplement *
