 The Life and Diary of a Young Girl
                            The Beginning
 Annelies Marie Frank was born on June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt Am
  Main, Germany. She was a happy baby, and the second child of
  Edith and Otto Frank. Otto had even been decorated as a German
  officer during World War I. But what Anne didn’t know was the
  terrible political climate outside the boundaries of her rich, green

Pretty soon, Otto thought it became way too dangerous for the
  Frank Family to live in Germany. As German as they felt, they
  were also Jewish. And with Hitler and his army, Jewish, was
  very dangerous to be. In 1933, the Franks moved to The

 the Franks in Germany.
        Adjusting to New Life
For Anne, it was very easy to make friends. She loved
  school, and talked a lot. She also had a trick of
  dislocating her shoulder for a good scare out of her
  teachers and classmates. Her best friends were Hanneli
  Goslar, Jacqueline Van Maarsen, and Sanne Lederman.
  The original three friends were called Hanne, Sanne,
  and Anne. The three (including another friend) had a
  club called “The Little Dipper”. She also had six other
  friends in the club including herself, and then they
  found out that the Little Dipper had five stars instead
  of seven, so they named the club, “The Little Dipper
  Minus Two”.
Anne was very chatty, like it was told. In fact, she was often
  told by her teacher to write short stories in school, that
  were often humorous, and protection towards her teacher
  and classmates. One day, she was told to write an essay on
  “The Traits of a Qauckenbush”. She explained that she
  couldn’t help herself because it was a feminine trait, and
  that her mother talked twice as much as she did. She kept
  right on talking, and was given another story to write called
  “Quack, Quack, Quack!!”. It talked about three girl geese
  and the father who ate their heads off for talking too much.
  This story was her most humorous, and she still kept on
  talking. This was her last and final essay her teacher gave
                             School Life

Anne got good grades, but her biggest problem was
 algebra. She totally loathed it. She also liked to flirt a lot,
 but only her mother wished she could’ve been smarter
 and got better grades like Margot, but Anne knew she
 could never measure up.

Margot Frank’s Report Card

   Anne was still happy with her way of life, along
    with the rest of the Frank’s. One dreadful day
    in 1941, the Nazis invaded Germany.

              Hello, Hello!!

Also in 1941. Anne met a decent sixteen-year-old
 boy. His name was Hello Silverberg. She was into
 him, and he was into her. They also hung out a lot
 together. One day, Anne and Hello stayed out
 passed the Jewish curfew, which was 8:00 P.M.
 Since Jews were forbidden to do so, they could be
 arrested. So when Anne got home, her father was
 devastated. He told Anne she would now have to
 be home by ten to eight. She agreed and they still
 hung out, until one dreadful day in July of 1942.
                   Dearest Kitty

On June 12, 1942, it was Anne’s birthday. She woke up very
  early to open up her presents in 37 Merwedeplein. The first
  gift she opened was a red and white checkered diary. She also
  got a blue blouse, flowers, chocolate, and more, but the diary
  caught most of her attention. She screamed with excitement,
  running to her father, hugging him.
Her first entry:
 “I hope I shall be able to confide in you completely, as I have
  never been able to do in anyone before, and I hope that you
  will be a great support and comfort to me.”

during the Holocaust.)
                Call-Up Notice
One dreadful afternoon of July, there was a knock at the door.
 Anne hoped it was her beau, Hello Silverberg, but it was
 not. It was a Nazis order for Margot Frank to report to a
 German labor camp the next day. Anne was frightened, but
 did not know who the order was for, so Margot and Edith
 decided it was best to not tell her the truth. Margot told
 her that it was Pim’s (nickname for Margot and Anne’s
 father)order. Anne was wailing. “Of course he’s not going.”
 Margot said. (quoted in Anne’s diary a little later.) While the
 Females of the Frank household prayed that Otto would
 return, they didn’t open the door for anyone else the next
 day. They also didn’t know that at the time when the Nazis
 invaded Holland, contacted his assistant employee
 assistant, Miep Gies, about going into hiding that day.
The Franks done as they were told. Then Margot told Anne that it was actually
  her call-up notice. This very much did not help Anne’s whelping. The next
  morning, they were told to go early in the morning, to a hiding place. Anne
  later wrote, “ Into hiding- where would we go, in a town or the country, in a
  house or a cottage, when, how, where…?”
Anne also described what she was taking with her: “ These were the questions
   that I was not allowed to ask, but I couldn‟t get them out of my mind.
   Margot and I began to pack some of our most vital belongings into a
   school satchel. The first thing I put in was this diary, then hair curlers,
   handkerchiefs, schoolbooks, a comb, old letters; I put the craziest things
   with the idea that we were going into hiding. But I‟m not sorry,
   memories mean more to me than dresses.” The next morning, the Frank
   family arrived at their destination.
                       263 Prinsengracht

    The Franks arrived at their new hiding place, until the war was
      over, or they were discovered. It was a three-story building
      above the store of Otto Frank. First, there was a big door that
      said “Employees Only” that was the entrance to the hiding
      place. (Later known as “The Secret Annex”.) One of the
      helpers of the Frank family put up a bookcase in front of the

                      The van Pelses

On November 16, 1942, the van Pelses arrived.
 Anne thought they were good at first, and
 then thought they were insane. She mostly
 fought with Mrs. Van Pels. Anne often wrote
 about them in her diary, as the van Danns.

               Fritz Pffier

A couple of weeks later, a new fugitive was
 hidden, making this the eighth and last person
 in hiding. His name was Fritz Pffier, or in
 Anne’s diary, Alfred Dussel. He was a Jewish
 dentist who Anne thought was also once a
 sweetheart, but became annoying to Anne

Mother-Daughter Relationship

Anne’s relationship with her mother was in poor
  shape. She had constant arguments with her,
  and never called her “Mom”, or “Mommy”.
  She called her “Mum”, “Mummy”, or
  “Momsy”, because Anne thought her mother
  wasn’t close. She also wrote about her in her
  diary, and once wrote she was beginning to
  hate her.

         Romance Blossoms

The years went buy, in a routine, mostly. Peter
  and Anne felt that their parents didn’t
  understand them, so they started to confide in
  each other. One day, Anne shared her first kiss
  with Peter, and they met often. But later, Anne
  found out she was no match for Peter. She
  couldn’t get much out of him, as much as she
  confided to him. But that didn’t worry her, she
  still had Kitty.

One peaceful morning at around 10:30 A.M. on
 August 4, 1944 , A large march came up the
 stairs of the Annex. It was Gestapo, who
 frightened the family. He asked for any
 valuables, and told the Franks and van Pelses
 to pack. Someone had betrayed the Franks
 and van Pelses!!

The Franks + van Pelses were scared, and taken
 to a downtown prison for a couple of days,
 and were sure this was just the beginning of
 the worst.

The Franks and van Pelses were headed to
  Westerbork, their first concentration camps. It
  would be the best camp anyone imprisoned could
  go to. But, they realized that it was actually a
  transit camp. Every Tuesday, thousands of trains
  were going to other concentration camps, while
  passengers did not know where they were going.
  But all they knew was to fear it. On one unlucky
  Tuesday, the Franks and the van Pels were
  headed for Auschwitz. As unlucky as they were,
  that was the last train to leave Westerbork before
  it was liberated.

When the families arrived to Auschwitz, it was much
 worse. There was a director who would say left or
 right, and the Franks were lucky that they took left.
 Hermann went the wrong way, the right, straight into
 the gas chambers. He was killed shortly after. What
 then made Anne scream was that she was separated
 from her father. They four women were taken into this
 room filled with stripped women, meaning they had to
 take their clothes and get uniforms. The women also
 had to have their heads shaved. But that didn’t hurt
 the 3 Franks that much, as long as they were together.
In November of 1944, Anne and Margot saw their mother for the last time.
   They were headed off for another concentration camp, Bergen-Belsen.
   This would be the worst for them. When they arrived, they were
   frightened, sick, and were tired. They were suffering from scabies, a rash
   caused by parasitic mites. As thousands of people laid over dead, the two
   sisters lost hope, as they grew weaker and weaker. Margot was one day
   two sick to get up. In between April-May 1945, Margot Frank died. Anne
   was slightly stronger, but truly knew she was alone. Without family,
   without her diary Kitty, she had nothing. Typhus epidemic grew wider, and
   Anne already had it, just to make her loose her will to live. But what she
   didn’t know was that her school friend, Hanneli Goslar, was over the fence
   of Bergen- Belsen. That made Anne a little happy, but still not enough to
   make her smile. Hanneli Goslar remembers: “ „I have nothing.‟ Anne said.
   I threw her a package over the fence (filled with socks and fruit) and then I
   hear she‟s crying. What happened? Another hungry lady grabbed the
   package, and ran away with it. We met two days later, and she caught the
   package…..but this was the last time we could speak.” A couple of days
   later, Anne Frank died.

            Coming Home

When the war was over, Otto Frank returned
 home. Auschwitz was liberated the 27th of
 January, but Otto decided to come after the
 war for a safe return. He knew Edith had died
 at a concentration camp, and had no news on
 the van Pelses. But all Otto wanted and had
 hope was for his two daughters.
                     Dreadful News

   Otto still searched for his two daughters, and
    then got the news from another person at
    Bergen-Belsen. The news that he’d been
    dreading finally happened: His two daughters
    were dead. A week later, he got a letter from
    the Red Cross with the same answer.

Red Cross’s Letter
            Anne’s Legacy

When Otto told the dreadful news to Miep, she
 was saddened. But when the families were
 arrested, Gestapo threw Anne’s diary on the
 floor. When Gestapo left, Miep and Bep went
 to pick the diary up, so (they thought) Anne
 would be happy to have it back when she
 returned. Miep opened a drawer, and picked
 out Anne’s diary. She handed it to Otto, and
 said, “This is Anne‟s legacy to you.”
