Anne Frank Diary 70th AnniversaryBreaking News
Teenager Anne Frank's diary about the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands in the early 1940s has inspired more than just plays and films since her death in a German concentration camp in 1945 at age 15. She started writing it 70 years ago today, June 12, 1942, on her 13th birthday.
Her first entry reads, "I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support." You can read the book online at Google Books....
