Anne Frank

  • The Nazis were after Anne's sister Margo. She had been summoned to report to a camp. When family were already planning on going into hiding, but when they received the letter the decided to go into hiding earlier than expected. The family became taking things to the Annex behind Otto Frank's factory, in preparation for the hide. Otto's Franks secretary along with others who the Franks trusted agreed to help them while in hiding. Somebody betrayed them and till this day no body will ever know.
  • THE “DIARY” ANNE RECEIVED FOR HER 13TH BIRTHDAY WAS ACTUALLY AN AUTOGRAPH BOOK.
  • ANNE WROTE MOST OF HER DIARY IN THE FORM OF LETTERS TO A PERSON NAMED “KITTY.”
  • ANNE AND HER FAMILY WERE FOUND WHEN THEY WERE BETRAYED BY SOMEONE—ANONYMOUS TO THIS DAY—WHO KNEW WHERE THEY WERE HIDING.
  • ANNE DIED IN BERGEN-BELSEN CONCENTRATION CAMP, BUT NOT IN THE GAS CHAMBERS.
  • OF THE EIGHT PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN HIDING IN THE SECRET ANNEX—ANNE, HER SISTER, HER PARENTS, THE VAN PELS FAMILY, AND A MAN NAMED FRITZ PFEFFER—ONLY ONE SURVIVED.
  • OTTO FRANK WAS GIVEN ANNE’S DIARY BY MIEP GIES, ONE OF THE DUTCH CITIZENS WHO HELPED HIDE THE FRANKS.
  • HAD MIEP GIES LOOKED AT THE CONTENTS OF THE DIARY, WE NEVER WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TO READ ANNE’S INNERMOST THOUGHTS.
  • THE DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL IS OFTEN ON THE CONTROVERSIAL BOOKS LIST, BUT NOT FOR REASONS YOU MIGHT THINK.
  • AND THAT’S NOT EVEN THE DUMBEST REASON PEOPLE HAVE TRIED TO HAVE THE BOOK BANNED FROM SCHOOLS.
  • SOME PEOPLE—MOSTLY HOLOCAUST DENIERS—BELIEVE THAT ANNE FRANK’S DIARY IS A FORGERY.
