LONDON, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- The newest Anne Frank biography, "The Life of Anne Frank," claims to be the most comprehensive story of her life that has been written.

The new book, written by the people at the Anne Frank House in the Netherlands and published by Macmillan Books, marks the 60th anniversary of the publishing of the "Diaries of Anne Frank," which is about a Jewish teenager who was killed by the Nazis, the BBC reported Friday.

The Anne Frank House is a museum dedicated to the girl in Amsterdam

"The Life of Anne Frank" tells of the young girl's life before she went into hiding in Amsterdam.

The publishers back the release of the book stating that they want her story to live for the new generation with lessons that are relevant today.

"Will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies," Anne Frank wrote in her diary.

She did not live to see this dream come true since she was killed by the Nazi's before her journal was discovered and published.
