Anne Frank has been referred to as "a symbol for the lost promise of the children who died in the Holocaust". Her work, ‘The Diary of a Young Girl’, posthumously in 1947, is a documentation of her life.
Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Anne Frank moved to Amsterdam, with her family when she was only four and a half years old. In 1942, she, along with her family, went into hiding. For two years, they lived in hiding. In 1944, they were discovered by the Gestapo and sent to the concentration camps.
Her father, Otto, the only survivor of the Frank family, returned to Amsterdam to find that her diary had been saved by his secretary, Miep Gies. The clarity and poignancy with which Anne wrote the diary are why the book and her life continue to inspire countless people.Read More About Anne Frank
‘The Diary of a Young Girl’, published in 1947, is one of the most popular and inspiring books globally for the poignant way Anne Frank documented her life while in hiding.
In a red-and-white plaid diary, that she received as a gift on her 13th birthday, Anne chronicles her everyday life, from typical adolescent problems to the fear of capture and her hopes for the future. Anne’s last diary entry was written on 1 August 1944. Three days later the annex was discovered by the Gestapo. Her father, Otto, the only survivor of the Frank family, had the diary published. Over the years, it has been translated into more than 60 languages. In 2009 it was added to the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.Know More About Anne Frank's Diary
Located on Prinsengracht 263, the Achterhuis or Secret Annex was part of Anne Frank's father, Otto's office. The Franks, who had been preparing to go into hiding with the children on 16 July 1942, moved into this space 10 days earlier after their older daughter, Margot received a call-up notice for a German work camp. Otto's employees helped them stay in hiding.
The Secret Annex, being the rear extension of the building, was concealed from view by houses on all four sides, making it a great hiding place. The Frank family shared the space with the van Pels family and Fritz Pfeffer.
The Anne Frank House established in 1957 continues to preserve the house as a museum.Plan A Tour To Anne Frank House
While Anne Frank’s Diary brought to the world the details of her life while in hiding, not much is known about her life as a young child. The tour takes place in Amsterdam, where Anne Frank lived for eight years before the family's arrest by the Gestapo in August 1944.
Through the walking tour, you not only get a glimpse into Anne Frank’s life but also into the history of the Holocaust.
