 Anne Frank was a young girl trying to grow up in Germany during the turbulent times of World War II. In the late 1920’s and early 1930’s, Adolph Hitler and the Anti-Semitic Nazi Party became a political power in Germany, winning control of the government in 1933. Being Jewish, Anne’s family was forced to move to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In May of 1940, the Netherlands fell under Nazi rule. Eventually, Anne’s family had to go into hiding. For two years they hid in a Secret Annex above her father’s office building. Anne wrote her famous diary in the annex, only to be captured by the Nazis’ in August 1944. Forced to live in three concentration camps, she first lost her mother then her sister. Eventually, she lost her own life at the age of fifteen. Anne passed away at the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp in Germany just weeks before British Soldiers arrived and liberated the camp.
Historian, Jim Gibbons, will present the Life Story of Anne Frank-- a young girl of faith, hope, relentless spirit, and wisdom beyond her years. Her story, “The Diary of Anne Frank,” has been read by millions throughout the world and transcribed into 67 different languages. Anne’s diary was turned into major stage productions, won the 1956 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and became a 1950’s movie that won three Academy Awards. Despite all the tragedy she saw, Anne kept an extremely positive attitude proclaiming that, “In spite of everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.” REGISTER
