“I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”

These were the words written by 15-year-old Anne Frank just months before Nazis raided the Secret Annex and sent the inhabitants to concentration camps, where all but her father ultimately perished. 

One of the most well-known teens in history, this extraordinary young woman’s work, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, ranks among the top-10 best-selling nonfiction books of all time and has been translated into more than 70 languages. 

How did Anne’s family end up in the Secret Annex along with the other inhabitants, and what challenges did they face while in hiding? What new discoveries about Anne’s story have come to light in more recent years? How do the  A, B, and C versions of Anne’s diary differ? And do we finally have an answer to the mystery of who betrayed the Secret Annex families? Join us for this moving episode where we discuss all this and so much more!
