Anonymous donor replaces vandalized Anne Frank books
An anonymous donor has replaced Anne Frank books found defaced at Tokyo area Libraries.
Hundreds of books by and about the young girl who hid from the Nazis for two years were found vandalized in libraries across Tokyo this month.
JAPAN – Police in Japan are investigating the vandalism of hundreds of copies of the Diary of Anne Frank and related books to libraries in Tokyo.
Library staff discovered pages ripped or cut out of the famous Diary of the Holocaust victim and other books on the wartime persecution of Jews.
Japanese broadcaster NHK has learned that the vandalism targeted nearly 300 books at 36 public libraries in Tokyo.
Library staff began discovering damaged books in early January.
They believe none were defaced when they were returned by the most recent readers.
Police suspect the vandalism took place inside the libraries.
They’re analyzing search records and security camera footage.
