They were eventually betrayed to the Germans and Anne Frank died at just 15 in the Nazi death camp of Bergen-Belsen only a few months before the Second World War ended.
The only member of Anne Frank’s family to survive the Holocaust was her father Otto who was convinced by friends after the war to publish his daughter’s diaries. The book became a global bestseller, selling over 30 million copies in more than 60 languages.
