Anne Frank for iPad and Nook reimagines The Diary of a Young Girl for the digital age | Critically Reading a Play - The Diary of Anne Frank | Scoop.it

"The story of Anne Frank is one of the most well-known first-hand accounts to emerge from the Second World War, one telling in intimate detail the persecution suffered by Jewish people in Europe.

 

The Diary of a Young Girl has been the basis of numerous plays and movies, documenting Anne Frank’s experiences holed-up and hidden in German-occupied Amsterdam.

 

And now, the story of Anne Frank has been brought well and truly into the 21st century digital age, with an interactive, multimedia-centric book for iPad and Nook, available in the UK only for now, with the US to follow shortly."
