Holocaust

Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt am Maine, Germany on June 12, 1929. In 1933 Anne's family moved to Amsterdam. On Anne Frank's thirteenth birthday she received a diary, she named it "Kitty". She loved to write in her journal. As every day passed, things got worse and worse for Jews. Then when World War II started her father, Otto Frank and some other clients where he worked created a hiding place in an annex to the office. The family moved into the hiding place as soon as possible. One day in August 1944, a little after two years of hiding, the Frank family was found and put into a concentration camp. Only Otto Frank survived.
