Happy Birthday, Anne Frank
Finding Dulcinea wrote:
Annelies Marie "Anne" Frank was born in Frankfurt, Germany, on June 12, 1929, the daughter of Otto Frank and Edith Frank-Holländer and younger sister of Margot Frank. Though she lived barely 15 years, her legacy is still celebrated today because of a diary she kept while her family hid from the Nazis in a Dutch apartment.
Memorable quotes from her diary express hope in the face of terrible adversity: "I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too; I can feel the sufferings of millions; and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again."
