Anne Frank was born in 1929. Her family moved to Amsterdam from Germany to escape mean, harsh Jewish laws. When the Franks left Germany, Germany invaded and took over Poland. The Franks pushed the laws that did not respect Jewish people. Jews started being arrested and were sent off to different prison camps across the country. This was the start of the Holocaust. Like other Jews, the Franks went into hiding. Otto Frank, Anne’s dad, found a hiding place. In July of 1942, Anne’s family and the Frank's friends, the Van Daans, went into hiding. But after two years, the hiding place was discovered by the Nazis, which were the political group that did not like the Jewish race. Anne ended up in a camp called Bergen Belsen. She died at the age 15 because of a fever in 1945.
