Google Doodle: celebrates the 75th anniversary of holocaust victim Anne Frank’s diary
Google Doodle: Google on Saturday honored Jewish German-Dutch diarist Anne Frank. Anne Frank’s diary, written by her between the ages of 13 and 15, was published on this day 75 years ago. In her diary, Anne described the holocaust she survived, and the events of the war—one of the most influential and widely read narratives to date.
The search engine celebrated the 75th anniversary of the publication of her diary – “The Diary of a Young Girl” – with an animated slideshow for Anne Frank. Google’s doodle on Anne Frank describes what she and her family members witnessed during Nazi persecution.
The doodle was created by Thoka Maer, the art director of Google Doodle. The German painter noted a sense of responsibility for preserving the memory of the Holocaust as a major factor in the depiction process.
“The Diary of a Young Girl” has sold 30 million copies
Google Doodle: Since its first publication on June 25, 1947, “The Diary of a Young Girl” has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 67 languages.
One of the most famous quotes from The Diary of Anne Frank is: “Although I am only fourteen, I know very well what I want, I know who is right and who is wrong. I have my own thoughts, I I have my own thoughts and principles, and although this may sound pretty crazy from a teenager, I feel more of a person than a child, I feel quite independent of anyone.”
Early life of Anne Frank
Google Doodle: Anne Frank was born on 12 June 1929 in Frankfurt, Germany, but her family soon moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands, to escape discrimination and violence against millions of minorities at the hands of the growing Nazi Party. The Second World War lighted when Anne was 10 years of age, and soon after, Germany attacked the Netherlands, ringing the war to her family’s doorstep. The Jewish public were especially designated by the Nazi regime, confronting detainment, execution, or constrained migration in uncaring death camps.
Incapable to reside and practice freely and securely, millions of Jews had to escape their homes or hide somewhere. In the spring of 1942, Anne’s family did just that by hiding in a secret annex in their dad’s place of business to keep avoid persecution.

The Secret Annex
Google Doodle: Like millions of others, the Frank family also, forced to act quickly and leave almost everything behind to find security. Among some of Anne’s possessions was a simple gift she received a few weeks ago on her thirteenth birthday: a checkered hardback notebook. Soon it became her vehicle to change the world forever. Hidden over the next 25 months, she filled her pages in a “secret contract” with heartfelt details of teen life, from the smallest details to her deepest dreams and fears. Hoping that her diary entries could be published after the war, Anne consolidated her writings into a cohesive story called “Het Echterhuis” which means “The Secret Annex”.
Anne Frank was died at the age of 15
Google Doodle: On August 4, 1944, the Frank family was captured by the Nazi Secret Service, arrested, and taken to a detention center where they were forced to work hard. They were then forcibly expelled to the Auschwitz death camp in Poland, where they lived in cramped, unhygienic circumstances.
A couple of months after the fact, Anne and Margot Frank were taken to the Bergen-Belsen death camp in Germany. Due to to the brutal, intentional killings of prisoners by Nazi forces, deadly diseases spread rapidly. Ultimately, Anne and Margot surrender to the inhumane circumstances they were forced to live in. She was just 15 years old.
