Anne Frank Born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1929.
Family The Frank's family business included banking, management of the springs at Bad Soden and the manufacture of cough drops. Anne's mother, the former Edith Holländer, was the daughter of a manufacturer. She had married Otto Frank in 1925. Their first daughter, Margot Betti, born in 1926, was followed by Anneliese Marie, called Anne, in 1929.
Residences She lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. Born a German national, Frank lost her citizenship in 1941 when Nazi Germany passed the anti-Semitic Nuremberg Laws. The Frank family moved from Germany to Amsterdam in 1933, the year the Nazis gained control over Germany. By the beginning of 1940, they were trapped in Amsterdam by the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. As persecutions of the Jewish population increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in the hidden rooms of Anne's father, Otto Frank's, office building. After two years, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Anne Frank and her sister, Margot, were eventually transferred to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where they both died of typhus in March 1945.
Special Events • Holocaust and World War ll • In late February or early March of 1945, Margot died of typhus, followed just a few days later by Anne, also from typhus. Bergen-Belsen was liberated on April 12, 1945, just about a month after their deaths. • It’s believed that Otto removed passages about Anne’s love affair with Peter van Pels, the 16-year-old son of Auguste and Hermann van Pels, who shared the Franks’ hiding annex in Amsterdam.
How She Became Famous Anne Frank was the young Jewish girl who wrote a diary while she was hiding from the Germans in Amsterdam. The diary of Anne Frank was published after her death. Anne Frank didn’t really have any accomplishments, she just wrote a diary, that explained to people how life was during the Holocaust and World War ll.
Death Anne's sister, Margot got sick with typhus. The Frank family was worried. She was very ill. Not longer afterwards, Margot died. Anne later became sick with typhus also. Prisoners in the camp were not allowed to have medicine. Anne soon also died. She died less than two months after the war ended. If she had only lived a bit longer, then she would be free.
