1942: Anne Frank receives a diary for her 13th birthday. The diary, kept by Frank while she was in hiding for two years with her family during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, would become famous as "The Diary of a Young Girl" when it was published posthumously following her 1945 death from typhus in a German concentration camp.
