Anne Frank House
Sadly, no photography was allowed at the Anne Frank House so Tammy is sharing what she has learned from the book she bought.
Anne Frank was born on Frankfurt am Maln, Germany, on June 22, 1929. In addition to her father Otto and her mother Edith, she also had a sister, Margot. When Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, Jews were increasingly discriminated against.
The Franks, who are Jewish, move to Amsterdam in the hope that they will be safe there, but in May 1940 German troops occupy the Netherlands. It soon becomes clear that the Jews are no safer here than they were in Germany. To avoid being reported, the Franks decide to go into hiding. It is while the family is living this secret underground life that Anne writes her diary. Writing offers Anne some release from her situation and gives her courage.
