In the News: Anne Frank’s 80th Birthday

Week of June 15, 2009

News Item: Annelies Marie Frank was born eighty years ago on June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. At the age of 13, she was given a diary which she used to detail her life in the Netherlands where the Frank family had fled shortly after Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came into power. The Franks lived in hiding for two years but were eventually transported to Auschwitz in 1944. Anne’s diary remained in Holland, but she would never write another entry again. Shortly after being sent to a concentration camp in Bergen-Belsen, Germany, Anne died of typhus in March 1945. Her diary, which consisted of short stories and fables along with descriptions of her thoughts and surroundings, was originally titled Het Achterhuis and published posthumously in 1947. Since then millions of copies have been sold throughout the world and translated into more than 30 languages.
