With Otto Frank's death in 1980, the original diary, including
letters and loose sheets, were willed to the Netherlands Institute
for War Documentation, who commissioned a forensic study of the
diary through the Netherlands Ministry of Justice in 1986. They
examined the handwriting against known examples and found that they
matched, and determined that the paper, glue and ink were readily
available during the time the diary was said to have been written.
Their final determination was that the diary is authentic, and their
findings were published in what has become known as the "Critical
Edition" of the diary. On 1990-03-23, the Hamburg Regional Court
confirmed its authenticity.
