The Anne Frank House museum announced on Thursday that it would put the teenage Holocaust victim's diaries and other writings on permanent display to commemorate what would have been her 80th birthday on June 12, 1929. Frank died in a concentration camp at 15. Until now her posthumously published diaries and other works have been kept in an archive at the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation. Some have previously been displayed at the museum, which encompasses and preserves the "Secret Annex" - the tiny apartment above a canal-side warehouse where the Frank family hid for two years. Education Minister Ronald Plasterk said it was important for the historical record that the writings be on display at the museum, "on the spot where they were written."
