The Anne Frank Center USA celebrates and endorses the continued partnership between the University of South Carolina and the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Recent media coverage has mistakenly written that the University of South Carolina Anne Frank Center was the first Anne Frank Center in the United States. The Anne Frank Center USA was established in 1977 and continues to have a long tradition as an educational organization tracing its roots back to the support of Otto Frank. The new University of South Carolina center will be a great asset to the region and to the continued advancement of the legacy of Anne Frank within the USA. We extend our enthusiastic congratulations for the outstanding achievement.
