Anne Frank loved to write. She dreamt of being a journalist one day.
But when she was a precocious teen of 13, with a soft smile and gentle eyes, her family went into hiding to avoid being sent to a concentration camp during the Holocaust.
She wrote during this time. Writing brought her joy. In her words, “When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived!”
Eventually she and her family were arrested and sent to a concentration camp, where Anne would perish.
And while she never became a journalist, her words have lived long beyond her years and have influenced many around the world.
