Anne Frank

Anne Frank was born on June 12 in Frankfurt, Germany. When she was young, Anne lived a comfortable lifestyle. Her father, Otto Frank, was a business man while her mother, Edith Frank, stayed home to tend to Anne and her sister, Margot. Her family was Jewish and they celebrated Jewish holidays. They were happy until Adolf Hitler took control of Germany in 1933. Hitler hated the Jews and blamed them for all the problems Germany had. He planned to wipe out the whole population by placing restrictions on them, then sending them to labor and concentration camps. But, the Franks still got to throw Anne a party where she recieved a special gift-her diary. About a month later, Margot recieved a letter in the mail saying that she would be sent to a labor camp! Her parents refused to let their daughter leave so they went into hiding with another family, the Van Pels (or as said in Annes diary, the Van Daans). They lived in a building where Otto Frank's company used to work. Anne called it the "Secret Annex". About five months later, a new member came to join the group name Mr. Pfeffer (or Mr. Dussel). Anne's diary explaines how hard life was in the Secret Annex. the families often quarreled alot and night were very frightning with the sound of guns, airrades, and bombs. They were able to survive for three years until everyone living in the building was arrested. One of the Franks helpers managed to salvage Anne's diary. The women of the Annex were sent to seperate camps the the male. Anne and Margot died in 1945 of a disease. Only Otto Frank lived in the end. He was given Anne's diary and was amazed at the young girls writing. Anne's diary beame published in 1947 and shows the story of a girl with hopes and dreams for a better life. Many people know Anne for her courage and her faith and she will always be remembered.
