"The Diary of Anne Frank" is being released next month as an interactive app, The London Telegraph reported.

The Anne Frank app, which will be released on October 18, will feature the full text of "The Diary of a Young Girl," alongside dozens of extra features, including audio extracts, facsimile copies of the original diary pages, exclusive archive materials, footage from the Anne Frank Foundation and an introduction with Buddy Elias, Anne’s first cousin.

The app from Penguin’s Viking imprint and digital developer TradeMobile has been authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation, which was founded by Otto Frank following the death of his daughter Anne in the Nazi death camp of Bergen-Belsen in March 1945.

It will cost approximately eleven dollars.

It has since been published in 60 languages and is seen as a key document of the Holocaust.

"Seventy years since Anne began her diary, it remains one of the most beloved books of all time,” said Viking Publishing Director, Venetia Butterfield. “With the support of the Anne Frank Foundation we are privileged to bring her story to readers in such an inspiring and sympathetic way."
