About Anne Frank
Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany. She was the second daughter of Otto and Edith Frank, a Jewish family who had lived in Germany for generations. When Anne was four years old, her family moved to Amsterdam to escape the rising anti-Semitism in Germany.
In 1940, Germany invaded the Netherlands, and the Franks went into hiding in a secret annex above Otto's business. For two years, Anne, her parents, and her sister, along with four other people, lived in cramped quarters, afraid of being discovered by the Nazis.
During this time, Anne kept a diary, chronicling her thoughts, feelings, and experiences. She wrote about the difficulties of living in hiding, her relationships with the other people in the annex, and her dreams for the future.
Sadly, in August 1944, the annex was discovered, and the Franks were arrested and sent to concentration camps. Anne and her sister were eventually sent to Bergen-Belsen, where they both died of typhus in early 1945, just weeks before the camp was liberated.
After the war, Otto Frank returned to Amsterdam and found Anne's diary, which he had hoped to publish. The diary, which had been edited by Anne herself, was eventually published in 1947 and became an instant sensation. It has since been translated into more than 70 languages and has sold millions of copies worldwide.
Anne's diary has become a symbol of hope and resilience in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her words have inspired generations of readers to stand up against injustice and to never forget the horrors of the Holocaust.
