The Paris Municipal Council announced today it would name one of its principal high schools for girls in memory of Anne Frank. The Technical Municipal School, one of the largest in Paris, will be named for the Jewish girl whose diary of her martyrdom by the Nazis became a world classic. The school provides both a classic education and training for trades.
