Excerpt from passage

Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt, Germany. Anne lived in Germany with her family until 1933. This was when they moved to Amsterdam, Holland. The reason Anne and her family moved to Holland was the rise of Adolph Hitler. Hitler was taking over Germany. He hated the Jews and Anne's family was Jewish. Hitler had created many anti-Jewish policies. Her family was hoping to find a better area to live where Anne's mother and father could protect her and her sister, Margot.

Things were fine in Holland for quite some time. Anne attended a public school and did very well as a student. Things would not stay fine forever though. In May 1940, the Nazis invaded the Netherlands. Holland surrendered to them. This meant that the Jews in this area were in danger again. Anne's father began planning immediately to find a safe area to keep his family until World War II was over.

Otto, Anne's father, worked in a food-packing warehouse. He converted an area of this warehouse into an area where his family could hide. This small space became known as the secret annex.
