victims of the Jewish Holocaust. She gained international fame posthumously
following the publication of her diary, which documents her experiences hiding

for the quality of her writing, her diary has become one of the world’s most widely
read books, and has been the basis for several plays and films. Anne died of
typhus in a concentration camp in early March of 1945. She was only 15.
