To date, over 31 million copies have been sold and it has been translated into more than 67 languages. Anne's diary, which recounts the life and times of a family persecuted by the Nazis, remains relevant to present-day students and teachers worldwide.

Anne Frank Online is administered by The Anne Frank Center USA. This non-profit organization sets out to:

* Effectively introduce young people to Anne Frank, the Frank family's personal story and the history of the Holocaust

* Help young people and communities explore and challenge discrimination, intolerance, and bias-related violence in a positive and constructive way
