Swiss Anne Frank Fund critical of research: ‘borders on conspiracy theory’

Foundation or fund?

The Anne Frank House from Amsterdam and the Anne Frank Fund from Basel were both founded by her father Otto. The foundation was established to preserve the Secret Annex and to propagate the ideals of Anne Frank. The fund manages the copyrights of her work. Both organizations sometimes have a somewhat difficult relationship.

The research team contacted both institutions at the start of the project. The fund refused to cooperate and requests to use their archive were not honored.
