Anne Frank, from Diary to Book
Before Anne Frank’s diary became one of the world’s most widely read books, it was a private manuscript. The book that millions of readers know as The Diary of a Young Girl has a complicated history of writing, rewriting, and editing by several hands. Since its first publication in the original Dutch in 1947, it has appeared in dozens of translations and hundreds of editions. Each edition presents the diary anew, with different introductions, explanatory material, and cover art. At the same time, Anne Frank’s original diary notebook, in its plaid notebook, has become a treasured icon, commemorated in museum exhibitions, films, even architecture. Exploring these many transformations of the diary shed light on how Anne Frank’s life and work have become fixtures of public culture throughout the world.
