'' Whoever is happy will make others happy too. He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery.''
Anne Frank was born June 12, 1929. As a child, she had a hobby, which was keeping a diary. She had a special name for her diary. She called it Kitty. In 1933, Anne and her family moved from Germany to the Netherlands after the Nazis had begun to persecute the Jews. In 1942, during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, Anne and her family hid in a secret annex, behind the Amsterdam office of her father's business. Later in 1944, their hiding place was discovered, and she and her family were taken to Auschwitz, a concentration camp, and later to Bergen-Belson. Anne Frank died there of typhus, less than one year later in 1945. Her father was the only member of her family who survived. In 1947, Anne Frank's diary was published. It was called "The Diary of Anne Frank." Through all the hard times in Anne Frank's life, she still found the time and the courage to one of the things she loved best - writing in her diary.
