Anne Frank’s diary, written between 1942 and 1944 in hiding in Amsterdam, has made Anne Frank one of the bestknown figures of the 20th Century. She was four when she left her native Germany, thirteen when she went into hiding, and not yet sixteen when she died in a concentration camp – one of the six million Jewish victims of Hitler’s racial madness. Over the past fifty years Anne Frank has become a universal symbol of the oppressed in a world of violence and tyranny. Her name invokes humanity, tolerance and the will to live. Her diary, required reading in schools throughout the world, has been interpreted as an eternal testament of courage and hope.
