Otto Heinrich “Pim” Frank (12 May 1889 – 19 August 1980) was a German-born businessman and the father of Anne Frank and Margot Frank. As the sole member of his family to survive the Holocaust, he inherited Anne’s manuscripts after her death, arranged for the publication of her diary in 1947, and oversaw its transition to the stage and screen. Enjoy Otto Frank’s best quotes below.
“For me, it was a revelation. There, was revealed a completely different Anne to the child that I had lost. I had no idea of the depths of her thoughts and feelings.”
“I just can’t think how I would go on without children having lost Edith already… It’s too upsetting for me to write about them. Naturally, I still hope, and wait, wait, wait.”
“We all had lots of stories of our sad experiences – they mourned the death of my wife with me – but we were hopeful that the children would return.”
