AAA Editor Notes
Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, at 777 S. 8th St. is a public park behind the Boise Public Library, dedicated to the importance of human rights. The life of Frank, the well-known Holocaust victim whose published diary became the basis for several plays and films, is highlighted. Benches are scattered throughout the memorial, which includes a life-size bronze statue of Frank, informational placards and a wall engraved with more than 60 quotes from the world's humanitarian leaders.
The site's water features are intended to mimic the canals of Amsterdam, where Frank and her family lived in hiding for many years. Other natural elements such as stone and native plants also are incorporated into the design. The Memorial is the only Anne Frank Memorial in the United States and one of the few places in the world where the full Universal Declaration of Human Rights is on permanent, public display.
