They lay hidden away in an attic in Basel for decades before being discovered. But now many of the belongings of Anne Frank's family -- including thousands of letters and toys -- will be displayed at the Jewish Museum in the family's hometown of Frankfurt. In an interview, SPIEGEL ONLINE spoke with Buddy Elias, Anne's closest cousin and last surviving direct relative. Elias remembers her as being "utterly playful." This photo shows Anne in 1941.
