About

ANNE FRANK

Anne Frank was a German-Dutch diarist. Her diary which was published posthumously as ‘The Diary of a Young Girl‘ made her famous across the world. 

Frank was born in Germany. She moved to Amsterdam, the Netherlands, to escape the Nazis. When the Germans occupied the Netherlands and started prosecuting the Jews, Frank and her family, Jews themselves, went into hiding. 

Frank had a diary that she received as a birthday present. While in hiding, Frank wrote in it regularly. The Franks were arrested in 1944 and transported to concentration camps. Sometime between February and March 1945, she died at a tender age of 15. 

Otto Frank, Anne Frank’s father and the only survivor of the Franks, returned to Amsterdam after the war. He found that his secretary, Miep Gies, had saved Frank’s diary. Otto’s efforts led to the publication of Anne Frank’s diary in 1947.

The Franks hiding place was renamed the Anne Frank House and opened for the general public on May 3rd, 1960. In 1999, Anne Frank was listed among the heroes and icons of the 20th century by Time on their list of The Most Important People of the Century.
