August 4th 1944 - Arrest of Anne Frank


August 4th 1944: After a denunciation of the Security Service (SD) Anne Frank and her family are discovered hiding behind a rotating shelf in Prinsengracht in Amsterdam, and arrested. Anne Frank wrote a diary about the time of her familys persecution which her captors do not find. First published in 1947 under the title "Secret Annex" it becomes a worldwide success and is a haunting document of the terror of the Nazis and their inhuman persecution of the Jews. Like Anne Frank and her family more than 100000 Jews were arrested in the Netherlands after the German invasion of 1940. The Germans initially imprisoned them in the concentration camp Westerbork and mainly deported them from there to the extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. Anne Frank and her family are put in the concentration camp Bergen-Belsen where she dies in March of 1945.
