New York (JTA) — In an
electrically charged bidding
session at an auction Tuesday
evening, a "private con-
tributor" to the Simon
Wiesenthal Center paid
$165,000 to acquire the let-
ters that Anne and Margot
Frank wrote in English to two
sisters in Iowa.
The sale, conducted at the
Swann Galleries in Manhat-
tan, was by far the most ex-
citing and the most expensive
of a lengthy list of letters,
autographed books and per-
sonal journals written by
such luminaries as Judah
Benjamin, Winston Chur-
chill, Thomas Edison, Albert
Einstein, a Holy Roman
Emperor and Buffalo Bill.
The rapid-fire bids on the
only letters known to have
been written in English by
the Frank sisters were placed
by Norman Kurlin, chairman
of the Simon Wiesenthal
Center New Leadership
Society. ompeting.
The bidding started at
$6,000. The Wiesenthal
Center's final and winning
bid was $150,000, the sum
which will be paid to the
sellers, Betty Ann and
Juanita Wagner, who were
schoolgirls in Danville, Iowa,
in April 1940 when they
became pen pals of the Frank
sisters through their
teacher's arrangement.
The Swann Galleries re-
ceives 10 percent of the sale's
income, or $15,000.
A startling revelation came
from the New York Times,
which learned that among

the underbidders was comedic
actress Whoopi Goldberg, who
has spoken of Anne Frank in
her one-woman stage perfor-
mance. Goldberg's bids were
placed by telephone.
Other bids came from a
Japanese businessman; a Los
Angeles dentist; Dutch-
Jewish writer Jack Polak,
who is a director of the
American Friends of the
Anne Frank Center; and the
Anne Frank Center in
Amsterdam itself, which was
only authorized to bid as high
as $20,000.
Barad said the letters will
be placed on display in the en-
trance lobby of the Wiesen-
thal Center's new Beit
Hashoah Museum of
, Tolerance in Los Angeles,
which will open at the end of
1989.

Reagan To Sign
Genocide
Convention

Los Angeles (JTA) — Presi-
dent Reagan departed from
his prepared speech in an ad-
dress at the Simon Wiesen-
thal Center to announce that
he will soon sign legislation
which will allow American
participation in the interna-
tional convention against
genocide.
Reagan, who was awarded
the center's 1988 Humanitar-
ian Award at a dinner last
Sunday, pledged American
vigilance "in the battle
against those who would
follow Hitler's example!'
