Anne Frank Between the ages of 13 and 15, Anne Frank wrote short stories, fairy tales, essays, and the beginnings of a novel. Five notebooks and more than 300 loose pages, meticulously handwritten during her two years in hiding, survived the war.  Launch the exhibition 'An Unfinished Story' to reveal the original writings—-through sound and images—-of a young woman who had great ambition to be a writer and was exploring her craft.
