Award-winning publisher Peter Mayer launched one of the most exciting international book ventures of the year to mark the 75th anniversary of Anne Frank's birth. Published in seven languages and seven countries, the book is illustrated with photographs of the secret annexe Anne shared with her family, and provides a glimpse into the world she describes in her diary. 

Peter Mayer and Rian Verhoeven from the Anne Frank Museum spoke about Anne's inspirational story and read from her diary in this fascinating event. Mayer presented copies of the book to three prize-draw winners at the end of the session.
