"Every day I think what a fascinating and amusing adventure this is. With all that, why should I depair?"
Anne Frank was 13 when she and her family fled from the Nazis during World War II. They spent the next two years hiding in the secret annex of an Amsterdam office building, never once going outside. During that period, Anne kept a diary. She poured her heart into it.
What was life like for Anne before the Nazis found her family? What happened once they did? How did her diary become an international bestseller?
This is Anne's story.
