Anne Frank, the youngest writer during World War II
The youngest teen writer born on June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt, Germany, Anne Frank went into hiding during the Holocaust, writing her experience in the renowned work The Diary of Anne Frank.
Anne lived in Amsterdam with her family during World War II and they were hiding for two years because of the persecution of the Jews. During this period Anne wrote her experiences and wishes.
She was only 15 when the family was found and sent in the camps, where she died. Her work, the Diary she wrote has been published in 1947 by the publishing company Contact in Amsterdam and was read by millions.
After the war, Anne wanted to be a journalist or a writer and she accomplished her dream. Even if she wasn’t able to see her success, we know she and her family were very proud watching somewhere up there.
