Anne Frank's collage restored

August 30, 2008

AMSTERDAM -- The Anne Frank House museum said Friday it has restored 52 photographs and images the Jewish teenager pasted on the wall of her room to cheer herself up while hiding from the Nazis.

The pictures, many of celebrities of the day such as Greta Garbo, Sonja Henie and Britain's future Queen Elizabeth, were removed in October 2007 when the wallpaper was taken down to be reinforced, and facsimiles hung in their place until last month.

They are now protected behind climate-controlled glass.
