The diary of Anne Frank – on the 75th anniversary of the first edition


Bear witness, shape the future

BASIL, SWITZERLAND – EQS Newswire – 22 June 2022 – “People should stop teaching history lessons and start teaching the lessons of history,” is what Otto Frank wrote sixty years ago. He had lost his two daughters, Margot and Anne, and his wife Edith in the Shoah during the National Socialist genocide. With the publication of his daughter Anne’s Diary, Otto decided early on to make the story of the others in hiding, public and to bear witness. It was an onerous decision at the time – and one that would have profound consequences.
