It would seem counterintuitive for a book entitled The Diary of Anne Frank to have another author besides, well, Anne Frank. But strange things happen in the Year of Our Lord 2015 – and by “strange things,” I mean copyright gymnastics propelled by a yen for profit. In naming Anne’s father, Otto Frank, co-author of the
Someone—it's not clear who—appears to be painstakingly vandalizing trashing about Anne Frank in public libraries across Tokyo, including her famous diary.
German filmmakers are turning the story Anne Frank's life into a miniseries, due in 2015—the 70th anniversary of her death. The two-part miniseries will have a "more modern approach" to the story. Not sure what that means, but you probably still won't be able to watch without sobbing inconsolably.
Anne Frank's diary is unforgettable not just because of its obvious historical significance but because Anne is so normal; she's boy crazy (let's be honest, she would've totally been a Belieber), irreverent and so relatable that Angela Chase once got in trouble for calling her "lucky" because she was stuck inside all…

There's been some chatter in the news lately about the Mormon church's bizarre habit of baptizing non-Mormons who have died. They've done it on all kinds of famous deceased people—Elvis, Shakespeare, and even Jesus Christ himself. This past weekend they baptized Anne Frank, WWII diarist and victim of the Holocaust.…
Next year the British publisher of Anne Frank's diary will release a diary by Helga Weiss, one of the few children from the Czech ghetto of Terezin who survived Auschwitz. Weiss, who grew up to be an internationally known artist, was confronted by Josef Mengele in the camps, but managed to save herself and her mother…
A fantasy of Jewish militarized revenge — like Inglourious Basterds! Sexing up a Holocaust victim who died at 15 — like everything else everywhere! The question is, are you Team Anne or Team Hitler?
You know the problem with the Diary of Anne Frank? Not enough sex scenes. Well, luckily, that's about to change:
• NBA Commissioner David Stern says in the next decade women may join the NBA: "I don't want to get into all kinds of arguments with players and coaches about the likelihood, but I really think it's a good possibility."
• Since us single folk are missing out on all those hilariously uncomfortable-looking sex positions featured each month in Cosmo, here's a helpful chart of sex positions for the lonely. We're digging the Abe Lincoln. •
