Diary of Anne Frank
Anne wished her diary to be published after the war. At first Otto is not sure what to do. But eventually Anne’s wish is fulfilled: Anne Frank’s diary called ‘The Secret Annex’ is published on 25 June 1947. There are translations, and it is adapted to both film and theatre. People all over the world get to know Anne Frank’s story, and are deeply touched. Otto Frank answers thousands of letters from people who have read his daughter’s diary. He spends the rest of his life working for human rights and respect. Anne doesn’t just keep a diary during her time in the Secret Annex. She also writes short stories and collects sentences written by other authors in a book. Anne hopes for her diary to be published as a novel after the war. That’s why she starts rewriting it. But Anne does not finish her work. She and the other people in hiding are discovered and arrested.
Tattoo ID Number
On September 3, 1944, Anne, along with her mother, Edith, her sister, Margot, and her father, Otto, boarded the last transport from Westerbork to Auschwitz-Birkenau. The transport arrived in Auschwitz on September 5, 1944 with 1,019 Jews on board. Men and women were separated. The women selected from this transport, including Anne, Edith, and Margot, were marked with numbers between A-25060 and A-25271. Records indicating their exact numbers have not been preserved. Approximately eight weeks later, in late October 1944, Anne and Margot were transferred from Auschwitz-Birkenau to Bergen-Belsen, where they both died sometime in March 1945. Though Anne's death certificate documents her movement between camps, it, too, does not include her tattoo ID number.
