Anne Frank

Over 70 years ago, Anne Frank, a German Jewish teenager, was forced into hiding in the ‘secret annexe’ with her
family and others in Amsterdam, escaping the persecution and extermination of Jews by the Nazis. During her time in the ‘secret annexe’, Anne wrote a diary, which was a profoundly honest account of her two years in hiding.

Published by her father after her death in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, Anne’s Diary of a Young Girl has inspired millions of people, including Nelson Mandela during his incarceration.
