The Anne Frank Memorial was established to celebrate the life of the young Jewish girl who penned what seems to be one of the most essential human rights declarations in our century.

What prompted the foundation of the memorial was an exhibit of Ann Frank that was displayed in Boise, Idaho in the year 1995. The event was so huge and attracted more than 40,000 visitors, a number that would equal 5% of Idaho?s population.

In the memorial, you will see quotes pertaining to human rights that have been preserved on marble wall that stands 180 feet. The quotes were placed for all people to see and were there in honor of some of the most influential people who ever lived such as Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Eleanor Roosevelt, Chief Joseph, Gandhi, Alice Walker, Confucius, Elie Wiesel, Billie Jean King, Dr. Seuss, and Frederick Douglas.

What makes the memorial very attractive though is a life-size statue of Anne Frank, created by the artist Greg Stone. In the 81-acre park, you will also find three waterfalls and two large ponds, making the memorial an excellent place for a quite time.
