Peter de Bruijn studied Dutch Language and Literature at the University of Groningen and gained his PhD at VU University Amsterdam with a historical critical edition of the poems of Gerrit Achterberg. He was also responsible for the critical edition of Willem Elsschot’s Volledig werk (Complete Works). At Huygens Institute he is currently working on the project entitled ‘Research on the Manuscripts of Anne Frank’, a co-operative endeavor of the Huygens Institute and the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. This project involves a new textual and historical study of the manuscripts of Anne Frank. The research focuses on Anne Frank’s development as an author, as well as on the events, people and places she describes in her famous diaries and stories.
