Anne Frank poses in 1941 in this photo made available by Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In August of 1944, Anne, her family and others who were hiding from the occupying German Security forces, were all captured and shipped off to a series of prisons and concentration camps. Anne died from typhus at age 15 in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, but her posthumously published diary has made her a symbol of all Jews killed in World War II.

Anne Frank, born June 6, 1929, died March 1945 (from typhus contracted in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp) a few days after her older sister Margot had died from the disease in the camp. Their deaths occurred about a month before the camp's liberation on April 12, 1945. Anne kept a diary, which chronicled the twenty-five months during which she, her family, and four other Jews were together in hiding at 263 Prinsengracht, Amsterdam, Netherlands. The diary was published in 1947.
