About Anne Frank
Annelies Marie Frank (German pronunciation: [ʔanəliːs maˈʁiː ˈʔanə ˈfʁaŋk]; Dutch pronunciation: [ʔɑnəˈlis maːˈri ˈʔɑnə ˈfrɑŋk]; 12 June 1929 - February 1945) was a German-born diarist and writer. She is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Her diary, The Diary of a Young Girl, which documents her life in hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II, is one of the world's most widely known books and has been the basis for several plays and films.
Born in the city of Frankfurt, Germany, she lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Born a German national, Frank lost her citizenship in 1941 and thus became stateless. The Frank family moved from Germany to Amsterdam in the early 1930s when the Nazis gained control over Germany. By May 1940, they were trapped in Amsterdam by the German occupation of the Netherlands. As persecutions of the Jewish population increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in some concealed rooms behind a bookcase in the building where Anne's father worked. In August 1944, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Anne and her sister, Margot, were eventually transferred to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where they died (probably of typhus) in February or March 1945, just weeks before the camp was liberated in April.
Otto Frank, the only survivor of the family, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that Anne's diary had been saved by one of the helpers, Miep Gies, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch version and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl, and has since been translated into over 60 languages. The diary, which was given to Anne on her thirteenth birthday, chronicles her life from 12 June 1942 until 1 August 1944.

Read anytime, anywhere with the free Kindle smartphone appsDiscovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank's remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit. The Diary is many things at one and the same time. It is an amusing, enlightening, and often moving account of the process of adolescence, as Anne describes her thoughts and feelings about herself and the people around her, the world at large, and life in general. It is an accurate record of the way a young girl grows up and matures, in the very special circumstances in which Anne found herself throughout the two years during which she was in hiding. And it is also a vividly terrifying description of what it was like to be a Jew — and in hiding — at a time when the Nazis sought to kill all the Jews of Europe.

The First Graphic Adaptation of the Multi-Million Bestseller
'12th June, 1942: I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.'
In the summer of 1942, fleeing the horrors of the Nazi occupation, Anne Frank and her family were forced into hiding in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse.
Aged thirteen when she went into the secret annexe, Anne Frank kept a diary in which she confided her innermost thoughts and feelings, movingly revealing how the eight people living under these extraordinary conditions coped with the daily threat of discovery and death.
Adapted by Ari Folman, illustrated by David Polonsky, and authorized by the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel, this is the first graphic edition of the beloved diary of Anne Frank.

'A modern classic' The Times
'Mesmerizing... Polonsky creates unforgettable panels that enable us to see Anne Frank's writing in a fresh light' Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany)
Hätte Anne Frank die Nazizeit überlebt, wäre höchstwahrscheinlich eine große Schriftstellerin aus ihr geworden. Ihrem Tagebuch vertraute sie diesen Lebenstraum an: »Du weißt ja schon lange, dass es mein größtes Ziel ist, einmal Journalistin und später eine berühmte Schriftstellerin zu werden [...] Nach dem Krieg will ich auf jeden Fall ein Buch mit dem Titel ›Das Hinterhaus‹ herausbringen [...] mein Tagebuch kann mir als Grundstein dafür dienen.«
Den ersten Tagebucheintrag schrieb Anne am 12. Juni 1942, den letzten am 1. August 1944, vier Tage vor der Verhaftung. Alle Bewohner des Verstecks im ›Hinterhaus‹ wurden von den Nazis zunächst nach Auschwitz verschleppt. Im März 1945 starb Anne, ebenso wie ihre Schwester Margot, an Entkräftung und Typhus im Konzentrationslager Bergen-Belsen. Der genaue Todestag ist nicht bekannt.
Anne Franks Tagebuch gilt heute als bedeutendstes schriftliches Zeugnis aus der Nazi-Zeit.
