Quote: Anne Frank

"I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains."

-  Anne Frank

Anneliese Marie "Anne" Frank (1929-1945) and her family were Jewish, living in Holland when that country was occupied by Germany at the beginning of WW2.  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.  After the end of the war, Otto Frank returned to the rooms where they had hidden and found Anne’s diary.
