Dutch app offers original writings of Anne Frank

(JTA) – A publisher in Amsterdam released the first smartphone application to contain Anne Frank’s diary in its original language. Uitgeverij Prometheus unveiled the Dutch-language app earlier this month at the Theater Amsterdam, a 1,100-seat auditorium that was built in the Dutch capital earlier this year for the show “Anne,” about the Jewish teenage diarist’s life. The app, which costs approximately $8.50 to download, contains the international bestseller The Diary of a Young Girl – a version of Anne’s writings edited and brought to print by her father, Otto. It also contains several unedited versions written by Anne Frank, as well as two interactive timelines with photographs from World War II, as well as the secret annex where the Franks hid. It also has video interviews with Miep Gies, who helped the Franks in hiding. It further contains the audio book of The Diary of a Young Girl, read by Dutch actress Carice van Houten of the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones.” The Dutch-language app is the second app containing the diary. The first Anne Frank app appeared in English last year.
