Some say Anne Frank's diary was written with a ballpoint pen. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE. Ballpoint pens came out in 1945 - WHEN World War II was OVER. Anne Frank wrote her diary before then. She and her family were arrested in 1944.

Eversharp, a maker of mechanical pencils teamed up with Eberhard-Faber in May 1945 to license the ballpoint pen design for sales in the United States.

At about the same time a U.S. businessman saw a Biro pen in a store in Buenos Aires. He purchased several samples and returned to the U.S. to found the Reynolds International Pen Company, producing the Biro design without license as the Reynolds Rocket. He managed to beat Eversharp to market in late 1945; the first ballpoint pens went on sale at Gimbels department store in New York City on 29 October 1945 for US$12.50 each. This pen was widely known as the rocket in the U.S. into the late 1950s.

Similar pens went on sale before the end of the year in England, and by the next year in most of Europe.

Anne Frank's works include the red-and-white autograph book where she wrote her first diary entries in June 1942, before the family went into hiding in July. That book is on display at the museum now.

In addition, Frank used two school exercise books as diaries once the autograph book was full.

There is also a small ledger from her father's office she filled with quotes she liked from books she had read; and an account book she used to write short stories in.

Finally, there are 360 loose sheets of paper that she used to rewrite the diaries when it became apparent that Germany was losing the war and she began to dream that the occupation of the Netherlands would end and her diary might one day be published.

"I know that I can write, a couple of my stories are good ... there's a lot in my diary that speaks, but whether I have real talent remains to be seen," she wrote on April 4, 1944.

The family's hiding place was betrayed and they were arrested by German police in August 1944. Anne died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp just weeks before it was liberated in the spring of 1945.

It has been said that there are entries in the diary in ballpoint pen. Is that correct?

No, that is not correct. All the diary entries are written in various types of ink and (coloured) pencil, not in ballpoint. The document analysis by the Netherlands Forensic Institute showed that the main part of the diary and the loose sheets were written in grey-blue fountain pen ink.

I think the claim is made to prove the diary is a fake.

Her diary was recovered and preserved by Miep Gies, a Dutch woman who helped the family while they were in hiding. Otto Frank, Anne's father, survived the war and published the diaries in 1947. They have since been translated into dozens of languages and read by millions of people worldwide.

"I want to go on living even after my death!" Anne wrote in the same April 4 entry.

"And therefore I am grateful to God for giving me this gift, this possibility of developing myself and of writing, of expressing all that is in me."

There is a very interesting movie about this time period called "The Hiding Place" from a book of the same name written by Corrie Ten Boom, a Dutch lady who as a girl helped her parents hide Jewish neighbors in their large house during the war. At the end of the movie you actually see an interview of Corrie as an old woman...it is very, very good. I have not read the book, but the movie was quite interesting and deep.

The diary was never written in ballpoint pen. A couple of pages inserted at a later date, not written in Frank's handwriting, used that type of pen. The people claiming this are just trying to deny that the Holocaust ever happened, and should rightly be ignored.

Why did the New York Supreme Court award the well known American writer Meyer Levin $50,000 to be paid to him by Otto Frank as an honorarium for Levin's work on the "Anne Frank Diary" because he had used the literary creation of author Levin in toto, and represented it to his publisher and the public as his late daughter’s original work.

Inquiry of the County Clerk. New York County. as to the facts of the case referred to in the Swedish press, brought a reply on April 23, 1962, giving the name of a New York firm of lawyers as “attorneys .far the respondent.” Reference was to ”The Dairy of Anne Frank 2203-58.

Bíró's innovation successfully coupled ink-viscosity with a ball-socket mechanism Bíró filed a British patent on 15 June 1938.
In 1941, the Bíró brothers and a friend, Juan Jorge Meyne, fled Germany and moved to Argentina, where they formed "Bíró Pens of Argentina" and filed a new patent in 1943.[1] Their pen was sold in Argentina as the "Birome" from the names Bíró and Meyne, which is how ballpoint pens are still known in that country.

Her uncle and her father both fought toothNnail for the right to "her" plagiary.

Just like Einstein as he stole work of Rutherford.
