When she turned 13, her family gave her a diary where she wrote all her feelings of the horrible situation. It was one way she could express her self during those hard times, plus it was a way of entertainment.
On Monday, July 6 Anne and her family moved to the secret annex because they received a call up for margot. That meant that if margot didn’t assist to the work camp they would arrest all the family. They left their home making people belive they had move to Switerland.
The secret annex was a small “house” that Jews used in the holocoust for hiding from the Germans. Where Anne stayed it was located behind her dad’s office. The Annex door was covered with a book shelf for making sure the place was safe and undiscovered.
PICTURES… Miep was the one that helped bringing supplis and food to the frank’s. Plus she saved the diary. He was one of the 8 who stayed with the Franks in the annex. This is a small map where they took track of the war.
Anne wasn’t killed immediately in the gas champers. The Nazis shaved Anne’s head and also they putted a tattoo on her arm with an identified number. They where treated as slaves and animals. They did harsh work.
Then Anne and Margot were moved to the third and last concentration camp. Edith (Anne’s mother) stayed in the second camp and die of starvation. In this camp Anne and Margot died of Typhus some weeks before the camp was free from the Nazis.
The only that survivor from the family was Otto (Anne’s Dad) who then was able to publish anne’s diary. Anne heard once in a radio station about people sending similar diaries and letters, so she decided she wanted to send her diary. That’s one of the reasons the diary is so good written.
The jewish people suffered a lot in those times, they where treated harshly and discriminated with no reason. Germans stared separating jews slowly. At first they stared to take some rights, such as the place they lived, the school where they studied and the places they walk…
