Het Achterhuis or The Secret Annex, was first mentioned publicly in an article in Amsterdam in 1946, written by Jan Romein. The diaries were in the hands of Otto Frank, Anne’s father, who was interested in finding a publisher. The newspaper article piqued the interest of Contact Publishing, who produced a first edition of 3,036 copies on June 25th, 1947. The first edition of Anne Frank’s diaries contained the earliest printed version of her diaries. A second printing of the diaries was published in December of 1947. (Books of the Century, 180, 183) (Anne Frank House) The Definitive Edition, reproduced here by the Easton Press, contains material previously left out of earlier versions of the diaries.
