Anne Frank's cousin gave up custody Monday of thousands of letters, photographs and documents that archivists say will reveal details about the background of the teenage diarist who became a symbol of the Holocaust. Bernhard "Buddy" Elias, 82, had kept the materials for decades in his Swiss attic before permanently loaning them to the Anne Frank House - the museum incorporating the tiny apartment where the family hid during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands - to mark Monday's 60th anniversary of the first publication of The Diary of Anne Frank.
