80th Anniversary of Anne Frank’s Birth: How a 13-Year-Old Girl Became the Defining Voice of the Nazi Holocaust

Events are being held today around the world to mark what would have been Anne Frank’s eightieth birthday. In Amsterdam, the Anne Frank House museum has announced it will put her diaries on permanent display. Anne Frank died at the age of fifteen of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in the spring of 1945, just weeks before the concentration camp was liberated. Her diary was first published in 1947 and has since become one of the most widely read books in the world. We play a reading from the Anne Frank Diary Recording Project.

  1. Former Waffen SS man on trial

    Germany A former member of Adolf Hitler’s fanatical Waffen SS went on trial in Aachen on three counts of murder for the wartime killings of three civilians in the Netherlands.

    Heinrich Boere admitted the three killings to Dutch authorities when he was in captivity after the war, but has managed to avoid prosecution for decades – first escaping from the Netherlands before he could be brought to trial, then successfully eluding the courts in Germany.
