Anne Frank
What did she write in her diary?
On Anne’s 13th birthday, her father gave her a diary. She first started to write about the ordinary things in her day until she wrote something more serious on June 11th 1936:

“Father is talking about hiding.” –Anne Frank

Anne's diary started from her 13th birthday to the day she was found by the Nazis on August 4, 1944.
Why did she write in her diary?
Anne Frank wanted to keep her most precious memories and experiences in a book, which she hoped to get published as a novel after the war. Anne Frank also wrote short stories and records sentences she likes written by other authors.
10 May 1940, the German soldiers invade the Netherlands, five days later the Netherlands surrender to the German forces; where life for the Jews changes. Jews had to live with restrictions which made it difficult for her father Otto‘s business. Anne’s sister Margot was sent to a labour camp, which then caused Otto and his wife Edith to decide that the dangers were too high. Otto tried to immigrate to America with his family but failed. They then decide to hide in the Annex
How was her diary published to the world?
Why was her family hiding?
After Auschwitz is liberated, Otto returned to the Amsterdam. He learnt about the deaths of his wife Edith and his 2 daughters Anne and Margot Frank. Otto returned to the Annex and found his daughter’s diary, at first he was not sure what to do with it. Later Anne’s wish was fulfilled; her diary was published as a novel called ‘The Secret Annex’ on 25 June 1947.
Her diary is an important piece of World War II that belonged to a Jew.
Where did Anne Frank go?
Anne’s first home was in Marbachweg, Germany and lived there until Adolf Hitler became ruler of Germany and began to blame the Jews.
Otto Frank decided that the family would move to the Netherlands. Her new home was an apartment in Merwedeplein, Amsterdam. Her father moved his business on a street called Prinsengracht.
Soon they were revealed by an unknown caller and they were brought to a prison camp near the German border. Three weeks later, the family was moved to Auschwitz- Birkenau, a concentration camp. Two weeks later, Margot and Anne were sent to a diferent camp called Bergen Belsen. Anne died a few days after her sister in the camp.
One day, the family received a letter to bring Margot into labour camp; Otto Frank decided that they will go into hiding in a secret annexe (secret addition to a building) behind his business.
"It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. "
