Another preview video is available here.

The Drum points out:

Created by Viking, Penguin, digital producers Beyond The Story and the Anne Frank Fonds Basel, the diary has been transformed to include interactive, multimedia embedded content.

The app includes the six missing pages of text; audio clicks from people such as Miep Gies, one of the helpers who risked her life to aid Anne and her family in hiding; and 21 video clips from Academy Award-winning documentary-maker Jon Blair, director of Anne Frank Remembered.

via The Bookseller:

Other features include more than 40 audio clips, including commentary from Miep Gies, who risked her life to help the Franks in hiding; context-sensitive notes, historic documents, archive images and hand-drawn maps; a specially commissioned introduction by Buddy Elias, Anne’s cousin and only living relative; as well as timelines, and 21 video clips from Jon Blair, director of documentary “Anne Frank Remembered”.
