Anne Frank’s toys to go on display at Kunsthal art gallery

The Anne Frank Museum has revealed that some toys belonging to Anne Frank have been recovered and will now go on dsplay at the Kunsthal art gallery in Rotterdam.

Shortly before she went into hiding from the Nazis, Anne gave some of her toys, including marbles, a tea set and a book, to non-Jewish neighbour Toosje Kupers.

While moving house last year, Kupers, now 83, found the toys again and decided to mention them to the Museum.

"So many people know about Anne Frank because of the diary, which was written under such unusual circumstances," said Museum head of collections, Teresien da Silva.

"The marbles are a reminder that she was just a little girl."
