Anne Frank the Writer: An Unfinished Story

In honor of its 10th anniversary year, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum is displaying Anne Frank's original writings, accompanied by this online exhibition. The Web site uses a combination of audio and animation, so that visitors experience Anne's essays and diary entries read aloud, accompanied by images and automatically turning pages. The complete text of all the writings exhibited is available for those who prefer a more traditional reading. There is also a series of video interviews with Anne's relative, Buddy Elias, and the curators of the exhibition. Anne Frank's writing presented here was done when she was between 13 and 15, and will be of great interest to young writers and anyone working with young writers, as she candidly wonders if she will ever be great, or simply ordinary, like all the other girls her age. On April 5, 1944, she wrote, "I know that I can write, a couple of my stories are good, my descriptions of the "Secret Annex" are humorous, there's a lot in my diary that speaks, but-whether I have real talent remains to be seen."
