Happy Birthday, Anne Frank!

Many of you already know that I like to give a shout out to my favorite authors on their birthdays.  Even though Anne Frank died before her diary was published, she aspired to be a writer, so as far as I’m concerned, she truly is an author.

Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany.  She died sometime in March 1945, at the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp.  She is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust and achieved her fame posthumously after her father Otto Frank found and published the diary she kept during the twenty-five months she and her family lived in hiding in an attic.

Like so many children and families during that time, she was brave beyond words.  And thanks to her journal, she will be remembered throughout time and live indefinitely in the hearts of those who read it.  Happy Birthday, Anne Frank!
