The Israeli Embassy is donating 300 books to Tokyo public libraries related to Anne Frank to replace the ones damaged in recent vandalism. Representatives from the embassy and Japan’s Jewish community handed over the books to Tokyo officials today. More than 300 books related to Anne Frank, including copies of “The Diary of a Young Girl,” have been found damaged in Tokyo libraries. Anne Frank wrote her diary during the two years her family hid from the Nazis during the Second World War.
She died in a concentration camp in 1945.
