    During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the 17th-century canal house, known as the Secret Annex (Dutch: Achterhuis). She did not survive the war but her wartime diary was published in 1947.

    Because they were Jews and the Nazis hated and persecuted the Jews.  She and her family were Germans, she was born in Frankfurt in 1929.  But after the Nazis came to power in 1933, her father Otto thought it best to get out of the country and took a job with a food company in Amsterdam.  But the Nazis invaded the Netherlands in 1940 and instituted an anti-semitic regime there.  Otto and his wife Edith Frank decided to move the family into hiding in 1942 due to increasing restrictions on Jews.  The final thing which pushed them into hiding was their eldest daughter Margot receiving an order to be deported to a work camp.
