Annelies Marie Frank (12 June 1929 – c. 12 March 1945)

Ann Frank was Jewish Holocaust victim whose diary describes
her family’s evasion of the Nazis during the World War II-era
German Occupation of the Netherlands. Her Diary of a Young
Girl (The Diary of Anne Frank) gives a full account of her life in
hiding from June 1942 through early August 1944.

Before Fame

She was born in Frankfurt, Germany, and was raised primarily
in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Ann received a blank book for
her thirteenth birthday that she soon transformed into her now-
famous diary. Ann Frank died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

The stone sits alone in a grassy field, and the ground beneath the stone is covered with floral tributes and photographs of Anne Frank

On this day in 1970, Apollo 13 blasted off on a mission to the moon
that was disrupted when an explosion crippled the spacecraft. The
three astronauts onboard consisted of James A. Lovell, Jr., John L. Swigert, Jr., and Fred W. Haise, Jr. All three managed to return
safely to Earth on April 17, six days after launch.
