The Anne Frank Prize was a literary award that was given out in the Netherlands in the years 1957 to 1966 by The Netherlands-America Foundation.[1]

The prize was established by Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, who had authored a play, The Diary of Anne Frank, based on Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl (Het achterhuis).[2] The play won the Pulitzer prize in 1956.[3] The prize money was to be given to writers under 30 years. The prize was awarded in successive years in the following genres: novel, poetry, drama, essay and short story.

Notable winners include Harry Mulisch[4] and Cees Nooteboom.[5]
