In 1942, when Anne Frank was only 13, she and her Jewish-German family
hid inside of several sealed-off rooms in the back of an Amsterdam office
building to escape from the Nazis. For the next 25 months, Anne and
her family lived in the small rooms, waiting and hoping and scared.
While they waited, Anne kept a diary.
Her diary, filled
with all the humor and emotional ups and downs of a teenager, was found
and published many years later. It has been translated into 55 languages
and is one of the most widely read books in the world. There has been
a play and a movie on the subject of her life.
In 1944, Anne and
her family were discovered and sent off to concentration camps. Anne
died in Belsen the following year.
