Anne died In 1945 in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in April or March of that year, she was 15 years old, and her crime was to be a jew, for two years of her short life she lived in hiding and left this remarkable document of man’s inhumanity.
She was a precocious intelligent girl, that loved life and nature as she tells us many times in her diary. She was a teenager like many teenagers, fighting with her mother, preoccupied with her own growing up. loving, hating, crying, and laughing while imprisoned behind a bookcase with eight other people, keeping quiet and invisible while pouring her heart out into a diary that makes her come alive through the haze of time.
We will never know any other destiny for this remarkable little woman and jet she achieved some of her dreams by writing her diary and showing us that she was a person first last and always. That she was never a label but the singular, the great Anne Frank.
