Anne Frank, who wrote her diary when she was hiding with her family and acquaintances in the attic of a warehouse in Amsterdam, is the most famous girl to have written a diary during the Holocaust.

Her real name was Frank Annelies and she was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, on June 12, 1929. She was the second daughter of the merchant Otto Frank and his wife Edith. When the Nazis took power in January 1933, the Franks fled to Amsterdam to evade the anti-Semitic measures of the new regime. Ana had a book for autographs that she had given her when she turned twelve and began to use it as a journal; There he described in detail the events that took place in the "secret annex." Following an anonymous clue, the German Security Police discovered the Frank's hideout on August 4, 1944, and deported the inhabitants of the annex to Auschwitz through Westerbork.

In late October or early November 1944, Anna and her sister Margot arrived with a transport from Auschwitz to Bergen Belsen, where they succumbed to typhus in late February or early March 1945. After the war, Otto Frank, the Father of Ana and sole survivor of the group, returned to Amsterdam in the summer of 1945, where former employee Miep Gies gave Ana's diary and some additional documents she had found in the annex after the arrest. The first journal appeared in the Netherlands in 1947. Published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Girl, Anne Frank's wartime diary has become one of the most widely read books in the world, To its author in a symbol of the hundreds of thousands of Jewish children murdered in the Holocausto.


The Holocaust was a state secret in Nazi Germany. The Germans wrote as little as possible. Most of the murder orders were verbal, in particular, in the upper ranks. Hitler's order to exterminate Jews was issued only in case of necessity. In general, Nazi leaders avoided detailed planning of extermination operations and preferred to proceed in a systematic, but often improvised, way. The Germans destroyed most of the documentation that existed before the end of the war. Virtually all surviving documents that were directly related to the extermination program had the classification and the label "Geheime Reichssache" (highly confidential), which required special handling and destruction to prevent capture by the enemy. Heinrich Himmler, leader of the SS of the Reich and head of the German police, said in a secret address to SS generals in Posen in 1943 that the mass murder of European Jews was a secret that should never be recorded .
