Anne Frank in The World: 1929 -1945 was developed by the Anne Frank House and is sponsored in North America by The Anne Frank Center USA.
The exhibit uses over 600 photographs to tell the story of one young girl growing up in Europe against the backdrop of the events that culminated in World War II and the Holocaust. Anne Frank's life changed forever when she and her family went into hiding from the Nazis in 1942. As they prepared to leave their Amsterdam apartment, the first item Anne packed was her diary. For two years, she continued to write in her diary while in hiding at "het achterhuis - the Secret Annex". Her last entry is dated 1 August 1944, three days before the inhabitants of the annex were arrested. Anne and her sister Margot died the following spring of typhus at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
