Anne Frank House to receive Frank family archive

Relatives of Anne Frank will loan a collection of photographs and letters to the museum housing the Jewish teenager's hiding place during World War II, in a gesture to mark the 60th anniversary next week of the publication of her diary. The material, which comes from the Anne Frank Funds (archive) in Basel, Switzerland, and from Anne's cousin Buddy Elias, includes photos of Anne, her sister Margot, her mother Edith and her father Otto that have rarely or never been on public display. The Netherlands NOS news reported Thursday that much of the material has been recently catalogued for the first time. Anne Frank Museum spokeswoman Patricia Bosboom confirmed the NOS report was accurate, but declined to comment further details pending a public announcement on Monday.
