5 days ago Albert Gomes de Mesquita is one of the last people alive to have known Anne Frank in person. He appears briefly in her diary as a fellow. When reading about 'the diary of Anne Frank', most people assume that a single Here you can read what Anne wrote and how it all merged into the book you. Anne didn't just keep a diary. She also wrote tales and planned to publish a book about her time in the Secret Annex. After the war, Otto Frank fulfilled her wish.

He stopped running his business while everybody was in hiding.

But once he returned, he found his employees running it. The rooms that everyone hid in were concealed behind a movable bookcase in the same building as Opekta.

With the assistance of a group of Otto Frank's trusted colleagues, they remained hidden for two years and one month. In August , they were discovered and deported to Nazi concentration camps. They were long thought to have been betrayed, although there are indications that their discovery may have been accidental, that the police raid had actually targeted "ration fraud". Anne died when she was 15 years old in Bergen-Belsen , from typhus.

The exact date of her death is unknown, and has long been believed to be in early March, a few weeks before the prisoners were liberated by British troops in April However, research in indicated that Anne may have died in February. The first volume the red-and-white checkered autograph book covers the period between June 14 and December 5, Since the second surviving volume a school exercise book begins on December 22, , and ends on April 17, , it is assumed that the original volume or volumes between December and December were lost - presumably after the arrest, when the hiding place was emptied on Nazi instructions.

However, this missing period is covered in the version Anne rewrote for preservation. The third existing volume which was also a school exercise book contains entries from April 17 to August 1, , when Anne wrote for the last time before her arrest.

They were kept safe, and given to Otto Frank after the war, with the original notes, when Anne's death was confirmed in the spring of Anne used the above-mentioned names for her annex-mates in the first volume, from September 25, until November 13, , when the first notebook ends. On May 20, , she notes that she started re-drafting her diary with future readers in mind.

By the time she started the second existing volume, she was writing only to Kitty.

Anne Frank: the real story of the girl behind the diary

Dear Kitty[ edit ] There has been much conjecture about the identity or inspiration of Kitty, who in Anne's revised manuscript is the sole recipient of her letters. In , the critic Sietse van der Hoek wrote that the name referred to Kitty Egyedi, a prewar friend of Anne's.

Van der Hoek may have been informed by the publication A Tribute to Anne Frank , prepared by the Anne Frank Foundation, which assumed a factual basis for the character in its preface by the then-chairman of the Foundation, Henri van Praag, and accentuated this with the inclusion of a group photograph that singles out Anne, Sanne Ledermann, Hanneli Goslar , and Kitty Egyedi. Anne does not mention Kitty Egyedi in any of her writings in fact, the only other girl mentioned in her diary from the often reproduced photo, other than Goslar and Ledermann, is Mary Bos, whose drawings Anne dreamed about in and the only comparable example of Anne's writing unposted letters to a real friend are two farewell letters to Jacqueline van Maarsen , from September The name She observed that she had many "friends" and equally many admirers, but by her own definition no true, dear friend with whom she could share her innermost thoughts.

She originally thought her girl friend Jacque van Maarsen would be this person, but that was only partially successful. In an early diary passage, she remarks that she is not in love with Helmut "Hello" Silberberg, her suitor at that time, but considered that he might become a true friend.

In hiding, she invested much time and effort into her budding romance with Peter van Pels, thinking he might evolve into that one, true friend, but that was eventually a disappointment to her in some ways, also, though she still cared for him very much.

The Diary of Anne Frank

On June 12, , Anne received a red-and-white plaid diary for her 13th birthday. The Franks were later joined by four other Jews—Hermann and Auguste van Pels and their son, Peter, and Fritz Pfeffer—and were aided by several friends, including Miep Gies , who brought food and other supplies. The close quarters and sparse supplies led to various arguments among the inhabitants, and the outgoing Anne came to find the conditions stifling. Heightening tensions was the ever-present concern that they would be discovered.

However, many entries involve typical adolescent issues—jealousy toward her sister; annoyance with others, especially her mother; and an increasing sexual awareness.
