DIARIST CAPTURED ON THIS DAY IN 1944

OTD in History… August 4, 1944, Anne Frank and her family are ...


Acting on tip from a Dutch informer, the Nazi Gestapo captured 15-year-
old Jewish diarist
Anne Frank and her family in a sealed-off area of an
Amsterdam warehouse. The Franks had taken shelter there in 1942 out
of fear of deportation to a Nazi
concentration camp. They occupied the
small space with another Jewish
family and a single Jewish man, and
were aided by Christian friends, who brought  them food and supplies.

Anne spent much of her time in the so-called “secret annex”(below)
working on her diary. The diary survived the war, overlooked by the
Gestapo that discovered the hiding place.
