The Anne Frank House Museum is launching a graphic novel of Anne Frank's biography to bring the story of the teenage Jewish diarist and her death in a Nazi concentration camp to a wider audience.
Spokeswoman Annemarie Bekker says the publication is aimed at teenagers who might not otherwise read Anne Frank's diary. It is already the most widely read document to emerge from the Holocaust. The graphic biography released Friday is a collaboration between American author Sid Jacobson and artist Ernest Colon. They also co-produced the best-selling graphic novel The 9/11 Commission Report.
Hill & Wang publishes the biography in the US later this month and MacMillan in Britain in the fall. German, French and Italian translations are planned.
