Anne Frank, Famous Author

Monument dedicated to memory of Anne Frank - 1929-1945

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be."--Anne Frank

Everyone knows the story of Anne Frank, the young German-Jewish teenager forced into hiding, and how for 25 months, she, along with others, lived in a secret annex of rooms located above her father's office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands to escape Hitler's rule during the Holocaust.

For two years, little Anne scribbled her deepest thoughts in her diary, chronicling her incredible life.

In August 1944, Anne, and 8 others were arrested and taken, her precious diary left behind. Placed in work camps, Anne, in March 1945, in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, died from typhus. She was 15 years old.

After the war, Anne's diary was discovered by her father, the only survivor of the Frank family, and it was published in 1950.

Today, Anne's diary, her story and the truths revealed live on in the hearts and minds of everyone who reads her words.

Imagine, all because of a child's passion to write.
