A quote from the diary which went famous read, “Although I'm only fourteen, I know quite well what I want, I know who is right and who is wrong. I have my opinions, my own ideas and principles, and although it may sound pretty mad from an adolescent, I feel more of a person than a child, I feel quite independent of anyone.”

The Nazi Secret Service managed to capture the Frank family in 1944. They were arrested after that and Anne and her elder sister Margot Frank were taken to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. They died there a month later.
