About Anne Frank
Born in the city of Frankfurt, Germany, she lived most of her life in or near Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Born a German national, Frank lost her citizenship in 1941 and thus became stateless. The Frank family moved from Germany to Amsterdam in the early 1930s when the Nazis gained control over Germany. By May 1940, they were trapped in Amsterdam by the German occupation of the Netherlands. As persecutions of the Jewish population increased in July 1942, the family went into hiding in some concealed rooms behind a bookcase in the building where Anne's father worked. In August 1944, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Anne and her sister, Margot, were eventually transferred to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where they died (probably of typhus) in February or March 1945, just weeks before the camp was liberated in April.
Otto Frank, the only survivor of the family, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that Anne's diary had been saved by one of the helpers, Miep Gies, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch version and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl, and has since been translated into over 60 languages. The diary, which was given to Anne on her thirteenth birthday, chronicles her life from 12 June 1942 until 1 August 1944.

Esta es la edición definitiva del célebre Diario de Anne Frank. Su texto amplía en una cuarta parte las ediciones anteriores y ofrece una visión completa y fidedigna de la terrible odisea vivida durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial por la familia Frank
Un testimonio único sobre el horror y la barbarie nazi, y sobre los sentimientos y experiencias que vivió una niña judía recluida con su familia para huir del Holocausto
Tras la invasión de Holanda, los Frank, comerciantes judíos alemanes emigrados a Amsterdam en 1933, se ocultaron de la Gestapo en una buhardilla anexa al edificio donde el padre de Anne tenía sus oficinas. Eran ocho personas y permanecieron recluidas desde junio de 1942 hasta agosto de 1944, fecha en que fueron detenidas y enviadas a campos de concentración. En ese lugar y en las más precarias condiciones, Anne, a la sazón una niña de trece años, escribió su estremecedor Diario: un testimonio único en su género sobre el horror y la barbarie nazi, y sobre los sentimientos y experiencias de la propia Anne y sus acompañantes. Anne murió en el campo de Bergen-Belsen en marzo de 1945. Su Diario nunca morirá.
«De entre los muchos que, a lo largo de la historia, han hablado en nombre de la dignidad humana en tiempos de sufrimiento y muerte, no hay ninguna voz que tenga más peso que la de Anne Frank.»
John F. Kennedy
Tales from the Secret Annex is a complete collection of Anne Frank's lesser-known writings: short stories, fables, personal reminiscences, and an unfinished novel. Here, too, are portions of the diary originally withheld from publication by her father. By turns fantastical, rebellious, touching, funny, and heartbreaking, these writings reveal the astonishing range of Anne Frank's wisdom and imagination--as well as her indomitable love of life. Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex is a testaments to this determined young woman's extraordinary genius and to the persistent strength of the creative spirit.
Once they were discovered in their hiding place, Ana and her family were captured and taken to different German concentration camps. The only survivor of the eight in hiding was Otto Frank, his father. Ana was sent to the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz on September 2, 1944, and later to Bergen-Belsen, where she died of typhus around mid-February 1945, about two months before the camp was liberated. In 1947, just two years after the war ended, her father published his daughter's diary.
à Francfort. Sa famille à émigré
aux Pays-Bas en 1933. A Amsterdam,
elle connait une enfance heureuse
jusqu'en 1942, malgré la guerre.
le 6 juillet 1942, les Frank s'installent
clandestinement dans "l'Annexe"
de l'immeuble du 263, Prinsengracht.
Le 4 août, ils sont arrêtés
Vraisemblablement sur denonciation.
Déportée à Auschwitz, puis à
Bergen-Belsen, Anne meurt du typhus
en février ou mars 1945,
peu après sa soeur Margot
