Anne Frank

Purchase a printable handout for just $1.00

Anne Frank was just thirteen-years old when she and her family went into hiding behind the Amsterdam office of her father to avoid persecution by Hitler’s Nazis. One of her dearest possessions was the diary she had just received as a birthday present. Anne died of typhus in March of 1945 at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, but her father survived to publish her diary in 1947. Today, translated into sixty-seven languages, Anne Frank’s diary has been read by millions.

Anne Frank: Lessons in Human Rights and Dignity


“The powerful writings of a teenager from the darkness of her hiding place during the Holocaust can teach us much about making a difference for the 21st century.” Using Anne’s diary as a framework, these online lessons from the St. Petersburg Times address prejudice, hatred, and discrimination. Many of the thirty-five single-page chapters conclude with topics for classroom discussion and journal writing.

Historical Context of Anne Frank’s Diary


In December of 1997, a revival of The Dairy of Anne Frank opened on Broadway, where it played to great reviews for eighteen months. This Web site is the online companion to that Broadway production, and is noteworthy because it includes a great study guide. The best section is this one on the historical context of Anne’s diary. Anne Frank was four years old when Hitler came to power in 1933, but the story began long before that. Learn how World War I led to the German nationalism that fueled Hitler’s rise to power.

Nicole Caspari’s Anne Frank Website


Nicole Caspari is a twenty-year old German who didn’t learn of Anne Frank until 1998 when her high school religion teacher showed an Anne Frank film. “After the first 45 minutes, I already felt smashed. I had the strange, inexplicable feeling that this movie tells me something which has been hidden from me in my whole life.” From that day on, Caspari learned all she could about Frank: She wrote a school report and developed this passionate Web site. Don’t miss her “About Me” section which describes how Caspari’s life was turned upside down by Anne Frank.

Anne Frank House


Millions of people from all over the world have visited the house in Amsterdam where Anne Frank wrote her famous diary. Best educational clicks are the Anne Frank and Diary sections, which house a treasure trove of details for school reports. And to put a modern twist on the lessons of the holocaust, don’t miss the Out of Line exhibit which explores what happens when freedom of speech clashes with a person’s right to be protected against discrimination. Should neo-Nazis be allowed to spread their racist message on the Internet? Should the offensive lyrics of hip-hop artists be censored? Where do you draw the line?

Anne Frank Center USA


Anne Frank Center USA is my pick of the day for its excellent photo scrapbook of Anne’s life, the timeline (starting in 1889) that shows the Frank family history in parallel with the development of the Nazi party, and the fabulous teacher resources. Other sections worth exploring are Students (look for the 43 FAQs and the Glossary) and Diary Excerpts.
