Anne Frank in hiding in Amsterdam during Nazi occupation.

  • The Hague, Netherlands

At the height of the Nazi persecution of Jews in Europe, on July 6, 1942, Anne Frank and her family went into hiding in Amsterdam.  The site was just above her father's office, where they remained for two years before being discovered and relocated to Nazi concentration camps.  The diary of Anne Frank is revered as an honest expose into the Holocaust, specifically her experience living under Nazi occupation in the Netherlands.  It is among the most widely read accounts in modern history.  Anne and her family were betrayed by close friends who were concealing their location throughout this difficult time.
