Research into Anne Frank manuscripts

18 Nov 2015 14:30

The Anne Frank House and the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands (Huygens ING) began scientific research on Anne Frank’s writings in 2011.



The scientific research focuses on Anne Frank’s development as a writer and the events she describes in her diaries. The textual research by the Huygens ING provides insight into Anne’s intentions when she rewrote her diary texts. The Anne Frank House is researching the historical aspects, unexpected connections and background to the texts. The Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies (Instituut voor Oorlogs-, Holocaust- en Genocidestudies - NIOD) is carrying out literature research on the conditions of Jews in hiding in Amsterdam and the Netherlands in general, and in so doing provides a broad historical framework for the history of the period in hiding in the Secret Annexe.



The scientific research is still in progress. We do not yet know when and how we will publish the results of the research. The publication of the research results will take place within the applicable legal framework, including the copyright law.
