Anne Frank’s ideas, spirit, and creative process come into focus through narration, animation, glimpses from her life, and her own handwriting in this online exhibition.
Opening on what would have been her 74th birthday, the Anne Frank the Writer: An Unfinished Story exhibition at the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is a tribute and celebration of Anne’s short but remarkable life as a writer. Between the ages of 13 and 15, Anne Frank wrote stories, fairy tales, essays, and the beginning of a novel. This online companion to the exhibition reveals the original writings—through sound and images—of a young woman who had great ambition to be a writer and was exploring her craft. In five unique sections of the accompanying online exhibition, An Unfinished Story, Anne’s ideas, spirit, and creative process come to life through narration, animation, glimpses from her life, and her own handwriting. Users can browse, page through, and enlarge all the artifacts used throughout the site in Anne’s Original Writings. Video interviews with the director of the museum and the co-curator of the exhibition provide insight into the making of the exhibition, and the Share Your Thoughts section allows visitors to contribute what impact Anne Frank’s writing had on them.
