On May 31, a village for
displaced persons was established on the
outskirts of Wuppertal, Germany. It was named for
Anne Frank, the 15-year-old Jewish girl who kept
a diary while in hiding from the Nazis that was
later translated into stage and screen plays.
Otto Frank, father of Anne
Frank, and Father Dominique Pire, Nobel Peace
Prize winner, lay the cornerstone of the new
village of Anne Frank.
