1. . Introduction The Diary of Anne Frank might be the most famous private account of the Holocaust. This was composed in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, between 1942 and 1944. Anne was created in 1929. Anne's father, Otto, had come from a wealthy background, however, his family's destiny was missing after World War I. The Franks, a Jewish family, moved into the Netherlands in 1933 so as to escape Nazi persecution. Anne received a journal on her thirteenth birthday and voiced hope that it would become her one trusted confidant. She immediately began filling her journal with details of her lifestyle. Less than one month after she started recording, Anne and her family were abruptly forced into hiding. The Franks were comparatively prepared, because they were sending furniture and provisions to some secret annex in Otto's office building in expectation of the Gestapo. While they were in hiding, the Franks used a radio to stay informed about news from the war, also Anne often wrote in her diary about events that grabbed her attention. The Gestapo finally arrested Anne and her family on August 4, 1944. 2 secretaries who worked in the building discovered the books comprising Anne's diary entries strewed across the floor of the annex. The secretaries handed across the diaries to Miep Gies, an assistant in Otto's office. Miep held the diary, unread, in a desk drawer. After the war finished in 1945, Miep delivered the diary to Otto Frank, who had survived the horrors of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Anne died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen immersion camp in February or March of 1945. Otto Frank knew of his son's wish to become a published author. He also reviewed the diary and selected passages, so keeping in mind constraints on duration and appropriateness.
