Anne Frank's diary is often many young people's introduction to the horrors of the Holocaust.

It has been more than 75 years since her final diary entry.

Three days later -- on August 4, 1944 -- she was arrested with her family in the "secret annex" of a house in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where they had hidden for two years. She later died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp when she was 15.
