Anne Frank was one over a million children that died during the Holocaust. The Frank family was in hiding for quite some time before they were found. The Nazi's finally found them and took them to concentration camps. Anne Frank went to a total of three camps. At her first camp, she, her sister Margot, Mrs. Van Daan, her mother, and other people that were hiding with them immediately got separated from the boys in their family. One lady that worked at the camp told Anne she would never see her father or anyone ever again. Anne and her sister Margot always stuck together. Sadly though, Anne only made it to three camps. She died at age fifteen. Margot was the only one who made it through the whole war. She recently passed away in 2010.
Since the Nazi soldiers were male, they treated men and women prisoners in their camps with a significant amount of difference. Prisoners were forced to do pointless yet challenging labour for an indefinite time before they were sentenced to death. Upon arrival at the camps, Jews were divided into two different groups; one would group would live and the other would be sent to the gas chambers immediately. The labour intensive tasks proved to be quite brutal for women since they were not accustomed to such duties. Even pregnant women were not spared and many women miscarried because the hard labour had killed their unborn child. Those babies who were born were almost inevitably taken immediately and killed. There was no privacy in these camps and the women were continually being eyed by the lonely, watching soldiers. Some women were beaten or sexually harassed while in the camps and could do nothing to stop the horror. Their husbands, brothers and fathers were either dead or in a different part of the
Among the on million of the children killed was Anne Frank. Anne was a Jewish, teenage, girl who's family went into hiding. They stayed hidden for over two years in their Secret Annex. Over the course of these two years, she kept a dairy that has now been published. Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl had been translated into over 60 languages and is read and studdied world-wide. She began the dairy at age thirteen and wrote her last entree at age fifteen. The majority of her diary talks about her time spent in the Secret Annex which was the back part of a spice warehouse owned by her father previous to the Neurenburg Race Laws. The Franks lived with another family, the Van Dann's, and another man named Dussel. On August 4, 1944 German officers stormed the Annex and arrested all families. They were then taken to a transfer camp called Westerbork. They spent roughly one month there before being moved to Auschwitz, a consentration camp. Once off the train men, women, and childern were all separated. That was the last time Anne saw her Father, Mr. Van Dann, Dussel, or Peter. This is when the dehumanization began. People working the camps strped them of glasses, jewlery, shoes, and anything else that made them a individual. In addition to this the Nazi cut their hair and put them all in uniforms so tthey all looked the same. After anther month of
Storoies has been born during the Holocaust, Anne Frank's was one of them. She was a Jewish young teenage girl who lived in Amsterdam, Holland. When the Nazis occupyed Holland, she went into hinding with her family in 1942 when her sister, Margot was called up to a concentration camp. A few other Jews has joined them later on. After more than a year of hiding, they were discovered in 1944 and were seperated during transitions to camps. Anne and Margot stayed together but died in 1945 of typhus, only a few weeks before their camp was liberated. In fact, the whole Frank family didn't survive except for Otto Frank, Anne's father. Otto Frank returned to Amsterdam and later found out that Anne had kept a diary the whole time they were in hiding.

Anne Frank was a Jewish/ German girl who was born in 1929 on June 12th. While in hiding, Anne kept a diary of her time spent in closed quarters trying to survive with seven other people.

Though, this girl was one of the many victims that was forced to give up her freedom for her safety. It always seemed to her that life was cut short and was limited as to what her family and she could do. She once stated, "I don't think I shall ever feel really at home in this house (Frank 20). Home always seems to be a place where children feel safe and where they sense comfort; Anne’s opportunity to have these qualities were stripped away. Though before that, throughout the 1930’s, she lived a relatively happy and normal childhood. Frank had many friends, Dutch and German, Jewish and Christian, and she was a bright and inquisitive student (Anne Frank Biography). But by May 1940, Anne wrote in her diary, “The good times were few and far between: first there was the war, then the capitulation and then the arrival of the Germans, which is when the trouble started for the Jews” (Frank 4). Her life was driven by fear and threat; she was forced to live an unwanted life. It did not take long for Anne to be forced to grow up and quit fantasizing about such life. Her life was played out as a deck of cards the Chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler, was playing

When they arrived the men were forcibly separated from the women and children. There was 1091 passengers and 549 including all children were directly sent to the gas chambers. The other females that were not selected for immediate death, Anne was forced to strip down naked to be disinfected, her head was shaved, and was tattooed with an identification number on her arm.
The Frank family did not stay in Camp Westerbork for long. On September 3, 1944, the Frank family was transferred to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Poland.
