The Franks moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands, in the fall of 1933. Related:  Ana Frank: Una joven historia de vida.Anne Frank

An Introductory History of the Holocaust The Holocaust (also called Ha-Shoah in Hebrew) refers to the period from January 30, 1933 - when Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany - to May 8, 1945, when the war in Europe officially ended. During this time, Jews in Europe were subjected to progressively harsher persecution that ultimately led to the murder of 6,000,000 Jews (1.5 million of these being children) and the destruction of 5,000 Jewish communities. These deaths represented two-thirds of European Jewry and one-third of all world Jewry. The Jews who died were not casualties of the fighting that ravaged Europe during World War II. Rather, they were the victims of Germany's deliberate and systematic attempt to annihilate the entire Jewish population of Europe, a plan Hitler called the “Final Solution” (Endlosung). Background Propaganda: “The Jews Are Our Misfortune” A major tool of the Nazis' propaganda assault was the weekly Nazi newspaper Der Stürmer (The Attacker).

5 Things You Don't Know About Anne Frank and Her Diary 1. Pseudonyms When Anne Frank readied her diary for eventual publication, she created pseudonyms for the people she wrote about in her diary. Although you are familiar with the pseudonyms of Albert Dussel (the real life Freidrich Pfeffer) and Petronella van Daan (the real life Auguste van Pels) because these pseudonyms appear in most published versions of the diary, do you know what pseudonym Anne chose for herself? Even though Anne had chosen pseudonyms for everyone hiding in the Annexe, when it came time to publish the diary after the war, Otto Frank decided to keep the pseudonyms for the other four people in the Annexe but to use the real names of his own family. This is why we know Anne Frank by her real name rather than as Anne Aulis (her original choice of a pseudonym) or as Anne Robin (the name Anne later chose for herself). In case you are curious, Anne chose the pseudonyms Betty Robin for Margot Frank, Frederik Robin for Otto Frank, and Nora Robin for Edith Frank. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Su nombre completo era Annelies Marie Frank Hollander y su diario, publicado en forma de libro por su padre, Otto Frank, dos años después del fin de la guerra, la hizo mundialmente conocida, convirtiéndose en símbolo de vida, de la vitalidad de un alma inocente, llena de esperanzas, en medio de un presente negro y un futuro incierto. ana frank 1170 1 Estatua de Ana Frank en la ciudad de Ámsterdam Persecución y exilio El exilio holandés de los Frank se inició antes de la guerra. ana frank 1170 5 Delación, caída y muerte ana frank 1170 10 Shutterstock

Anne Frank’s Diary Published Otto Frank, the only member of his family to survive the Holocaust, returned home from the Auschwitz concentration camp after it was liberated by Russian troops in early January 1945. He soon found the diary of his younger daughter, Anne. Written in Dutch while her family was in hiding from the Gestapo, Anne Frank’s diary tells the story of a young woman’s internal struggle to understand and cope with Nazi occupation and anti-Semitism. Otto recalled in the 1960s how he felt reading the diary for the first time: “For me, it was a revelation. He began typing the diary into German and sharing it with family and close friends, who convinced him to share it with the world. Known to American readers as “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl,” it has since been published in more than 60 languages and has become one of the most influential—and widely read—literary works in history.

Anne Frank and Mattie and Sarah were both young girls who went through an incredibly tough time were they suffered mental and physical abuse. They were approximately the same age and they were separated from their parents. Also, the only people affected by the residential schools were children (like Mattie and Sarah) and children were also the most affected during the holocaust (many children were immediately killed when they arrived at the camps). Even though, Mattie and Sarah are fictional characters, all three girls lived during a important historical period. Sadly, in both cases, the atrocities that they were forced to live were only revealed after they were finished. by amelie.sophie.sweg Oct 31

Anne Frank, Sarah and Mattie are alike in someway. They both had to live in pain for awhile. Mattie and Sarah lived with abuse and Anne lived with the constant fear of being killed or found everyday for a really long time. They didn't know what was waiting for them if they would step into the real world. They probably never thought that what happened to them was going to happen in their life. It is not very common. by amelie.sophie.sweg Oct 31
