The Anne Frank Center USA is the American chapter of the network of which the Anne Frank House is the center.[1] The Center uses Anne Frank's diary and spirit to teach about the impact of racism, anti-Semitism and other forms of discrimination.[2]

Previously located on Crosby Street in Manhattan's Soho neighborhood, the museum moved in 2012 to 44 Park Place, directly across from Park51.[3]
