LIFE Anne Frank

In 1942, a young girl named Anne Frank was given a diary as a 13th birthday present. In it, she recorded her thoughts and experiences as her family-German Jews living in Amsterdam-went into hiding to attempt to escape the Nazi regime. They were finally found out and did not survive to the end of the war, but the subsequent publication of Anne's moving, mature and often beautiful diary made her into one of the most significant chroniclers of the Holocaust. The diary has been translated into 70 languages, with 25 million copies sold, and the lessons of Anne Frank's life continue to be learned anew every day.

the lessons of her life

On June 12, 1942, Anne Frank received a small diary for her 13th birthday. She and her family had been living in Amsterdam for nine years after fleeing their native Germany in 1933, when the Nazis gained power and began stripping Jews of their most basic rights. Although the Franks found stability for several years, they could not escape the wave of turmoil and repression sweeping across Europe. Less than a month after Anne received her diary, she and her family went into hiding to avoid being sent to the Nazi camps. For the next two years, Anne confided her innermost thoughts to her diary. Her chronicles of daily life paint a picture of a bright girl—full of hopes and fears and love for her family and friends—navigating the passage from…

a happy childhood, a looming threat

“Later on neither I nor anyone else will be interested in the musings of a thirteen-year-old schoolgirl. Oh well, it doesn’t matter. I feel like writing.”ANNE FRANK, JUNE 20, 1942 Things were good for the Frank family. Prosperous, cultured, and fervently patriotic, they had lived in Frankfurt for generations. During World War I, Otto Heinrich Frank had bravely served in the German army. After the war, he ran the family bank and the Soden Mineral Products Company, which made cough lozenges. His entry into German business in the years following the war seemed to have come at a fortuitous time. The economy was improving after a period of hyperinflation. Not only was the improvement good for German wallets, it also helped to keep politics stable. Though National Socialism—the Nazi party—had raised its…

Soon after, Anne, Otto, and Edith, wearing layers of clothes, walked the two and a half miles there. It was raining, and each carried a schoolbag and a shopping bag stuffed with as many items as could possibly fit. A week after the Franks settled in their hiding place, Hermann, Auguste, and Peter van Pels moved in.…

the franks are found

“These poor people are being shipped off to filthy slaughterhouses like a herd of sick and neglected cattle.”ANNE FRANK, MARCH 27, 1943 It all ended on August 4, 1944, when a tip came in for the security police. The Vienna-born Gestapo Oberscharführer Karl Josef Silberbauer, along with members of the Dutch police, arrived at Prinsengracht 263 at around 10:30 that morning. “The door opened and a small man entered,” Miep would later recall. “He pointed the revolver in his hand at me and said: ‘Stay seated! Don’t move!’” They demanded that Victor Kugler tell them who owned this building. As they searched the upstairs, they told him that they knew he had Jews hidden in the building. Feeling he had no other choice, Kugler brought them to the bookcase blocking the…

her voice lives on

“It’s utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering, and death.”ANNE FRANK, JULY 15, 1944 During the years of the Holocaust, the Nazis systematically murdered six million Jews, as well as five million Roma, Sinti, priests, nuns, people with disabilities, homosexuals, and political prisoners. The killing took place throughout Europe in more than 40,000 concentration, labor, prisoner of war, and internment camps, as well as by the Einsatzgruppen, mobile killing squads, which machine-gunned entire communities or shoved residents into gas-asphyxiation vans. Some 80 percent of Dutch Jews died in the Holocaust, giving Holland the highest death rate in western Europe. Of the 107,000 Dutch Jews sent to the camps, only 5,000 lived. The death toll at Auschwitz, where more than a million people died, proved especially…
