Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl who kept a diary while hiding from Nazi persecution in the Netherlands during World War II. From July 6, 1942, until August 4, 1944, she and her family lived in a secret apartment in Amsterdam. On the latter day, they were found and arrested by the German occupying authorities. Anne died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany only a few weeks before the camp was liberated. An abridgment of her poignant diary was published in 1947; a complete English edition appeared in 1995. The Diary of Anne Frank became a Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play in 1955 (film, 1959); a new adaptation of the play opened on Broadway in 1997. The existence of five additional pages of the diary was reported in 1998 by a family friend, who said he had been given them by Otto Frank, Anne's father. The pages contain Anne's observations of her parents' marital problems.
