NEW YORK (AP).- New York City's Anne Frank Center has moved to a new Manhattan location near ground zero.
The first phase of the new 2,700-square-foot space opened to the public on Thursday.
The center is dedicated to raising awareness of intolerance. It had been located in a much smaller space in the city's Soho neighborhood.
Interactive exhibits, photographs and excerpts from her diary retell the story of the 13-year-old girl who went into hiding in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam in 1942.
The center is two blocks from the World Trade Center and across the street from the Park51 Muslim community center.
The museum also will feature a replica of the bedroom where Frank hid for two years.
