Here are some fun facts, meaningful quotes, and some neat stuff about the friends and family who lived in the Annex.

Annelies Marie Frank is Anne's full name.
 
Anne called her diary "Kitty".
 
Anne's diary has been published in over 30 languages. There have also been movies and plays based on her writings.
 
Some Anne Frank quotes:
 
And finally I twist my heart round again, so that the bad is on the outside and the good is on the inside, and keep on trying to find a way of becoming what I would so like to be, and could be, if there weren't any other people living in the world.
 
Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!
 
How true Daddy's words were when he said: all children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
I don't think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.
I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out.
 
I simply can't build my hopes on a foundation of confusion, misery and death... I think... peace and tranquillity will return again.
 
Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.
 
We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.
 
Who would ever think that so much went on in the soul of a young girl?
 
 

"We cannot change what happened anymore. The only thing we can do is to learn from the past and to realize what discrimination and persecution of innocent people means. I believe that it’s everyone’s responsibility to fight prejudice."

 – Otto Frank
