Here is the story of Anne Frank, who, from 1942 to 1944, hid from the Nazis with her family in a secret apartment in Amsterdam. As Hitler carried out his plans to rid Europe of all Jews, Anne bravely made the best of her confined life. She wrote in her diary, kept up with her studies, and pasted photographs of movie stars on her wall. Strong and courageous to the end, she was caught in a time and a place that should never have been, and that must never be allowed to exist again.
