  • 3. http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/holocaust/h-chancl.htm
  • 4. • • • • Jews could not serve in the military. Jews could not ride bicycles. Jews could not own businesses. Jews could not attend schools with non-Jews. Books by authors such as Jack London, Helen Keller, and Albert Einstein were burned because the Nazis said they contained “unGerman” ideas. http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/triumph/tr-bookburn.htm
  • 5. Because of the troubles, the Frank family fled to Amsterdam, the capital of The Netherlands (“Holland”), when she was 5 years old. By her 13th birthday, the Germans had taken over Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Denmark, France, Norway, and Romania.
  • 6. Once the Germans invaded The Netherlands, the Frank family went into hiding with the Van Pels family and Fritz Pfeffer. Their “Secret Annex” was located beside a canal, hidden behind the offices of Mr. Frank’s business.
  • 7. Meanwhile, Hitler’s armies continued to ravage Europe and its people. Millions were put to death in the Nazi effort to create a “pure” Aryan race. Victims Number Killed Jews 5,900,000 Roma (Gypsies) 220,000 – 1,500,000 Physically/Mentally Disabled 200,000 – 250,000 Soviet Prisoners of War 2,000,000 – 3,000,000 Ethnic Poles 1,800,000 – 2,000,000 Homosexuals 5,000 – 15,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses 2,500 – 5,000
  • 8. While in hiding, Anne recorded her fears, hopes, and experiences in her diary. She filled the walls of her room with pictures of movie stars.
  • 9. After two years in hiding, the residents of the Secret Annex were discovered and sent to concentration camps. Only Mr. Frank – and Anne’s diary – survived. Through the words in her diary, Anne Frank has become a symbol for the lost promise of the children who died in the Holocaust.
