Anne Frank's Letters From Early World War II to Be Published in Full for the First Time

Thanks to her best-selling diary, most people know Anne Frank as the young Jewish girl who lived in an attic during the Holocaust. Letters Frank penned before she and her family went into hiding reveal a different chapter of her life, and for the first time ever, they will be fully published in English, The Guardian reports.

Frank's letters to her grandmother, Alice Frank, are included in Anne Frank: The Collected Works, a new book from Bloomsbury that compiles the young writer's diary entries, letters, and favorite quotes, and presents them with essays and photographs. She wrote the letters from 1936 to 1941, the period leading up to when she received her diary for her 13th birthday in 1942 and moved into a secret annex in the Netherlands that same year.
