Anne Frank



On this day in 1944, Anne Frank and her family were captured by the German Gestapo. After hiding at the top level of a canal-side house for over two years, the Frank's were caught when an informant turned them in. Anne and her family were sent to Auschwitz, where only her father survived. He eventually had her diary published, and it has become one of the most reprinted books of the 20th century.
