        Subject: A digital edition of Anne Frank's  Manuscripts

Dear Colleagues,

Now available online: a digital edition of Anne Frank's Diary and all her other
manuscripts, at The present edition is in
Dutch. A translation into English will follow in about a year's time. The
edition was built using TEI.

Unfortunately, the edition is only accessible in countries where Anne Frank's
texts are in the public domain. These include, to name a few, Belgium, Brazil,
Germany, Israel and Japan. The edition is not available in other countries, such
as the UK, the USA and the Netherlands.

A YouTube video (in Dutch, but YouTube can generate subtitles in your language)
that explains the edition is available here:

All best,
Peter Boot
