Anne Frank Wax Figure Added in Madam Tussauds Museum
New exhibit opened featuring the 13-year-old Frank placed next to Hitler's exhibit
Madame Tussauds museum in Berlin has opened a new exhibit featuring Anne Frank, the famous diary author who wrote about her Jewish family's experiences hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam.

The exhibit also includes a recreation of the secret room in the annex of the house where Frank and her family hid.
