In cooperation with the Anne Frank Fund Basel, the Jewish Museum of Frankfurt in 2012 established the Frank Family Center as a new central focus of the museum. The Anne Frank Fund Basle and its president Buddy Elias consign to the Jewish Museum Frankfurt the estate (paintings, photographs, memorabilia and furniture) of the family of Anne Frank whose roots in Frankfurt can be traced back to the 16th century. These objects will form a significant part of the new permanent exhibition at the Jewish Museum.
Furthermore, the center will take care of the various archives of the Anne Frank Fund Basel, founded in 1963 by Otto Frank, as well as of the documents of the Frank-Elias family.
The collections of the Frank Family Center will be accessible to the public via this website following the integration of the collections and archives into collections of the museum.
