Anne and her family were persecuted alongside millions of Jews prior to and during World War II for their faith.  It was during this period on her 13th birthday that Anne recieved a diary in which she wrote her life story. Forced to flee their home and go into hiding, the Frank family was eventually seperated, with Anne and her sister Margot being placed in Bergen-Belsen. In 1945, years after their initial seperation, it was discovered that both Anne and her sister were killed, leaving only her beloved diary behind.
