1929: Anne Frank, the Holocaust victim who became famous posthumously after her diary was published, is born in Frankfurt am Main, Weimar Germany. Her diary documented her experiences hiding with her family in concealed rooms during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. After two years in hiding, the group was betrayed, arrested and transported to concentration camps, where Frank, her mother and her sister all died. Pictured is a memorial to Anne and Margot Frank at the site of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany, where both girls died due to typhus.
