In the diary she received for her 13th birthday on June 12, 1942, Anne Frank wrote about her fears, hopes, and experiences in hiding. She shared, "I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" After the war, Anne Frank's diary was published, translated, and adapted for theater and film, touching the lives of millions of people across the world.
