Anne Frank (German: [anəliːs maˈʁiː ˈʔanə ˈfʁaŋk]; Dutch: [ɑnəˈlis maːˈri ˈʔɑnə ˈfrɑŋk]; 12 June 1929 – February or March 1945) was a German-born diarist. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl (originally Het Achterhuis in Dutch; English: The Secret Annex), in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.

Death Edit

In the early spring of 1945, Anne Frank and her sister Margot both came down with typhus and died within a day of each other. The girls were being held at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany, where food was scarce, sanitation was awful and disease ran rampant.
