On 12 June 1929, Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt, Germany.
Most known for her diary entries, Anne documented both the fears of being discovered in the annex and the troubles adolescent girls face. The diary includes entries with candid questions on romance, her dreams of becoming a journalist, and fights with her mother. She shared the comfort her diary brought her, writing, “the nicest part [of the diary] is being able to write down all my thoughts and feelings; otherwise, I'd absolutely suffocate.”
Her final diary entry was dated 1 August 1944. She wrote, “I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery and death, I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness... I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out.”
