Buy books by Anne Frank.

German born Jewish girl, remembered around the world for her diary which she wrote whilst in hiding in Amsterdam during the German occupation. She was born in Frankfurt, but her family moved to Amsterdam when the Nazis came to power in Germany, but once the occupation extended into the Netherlands the Jewish population was not safe so the family went into hiding with friends in July 1942.

They hid in secret rooms in the office building of Anne’s father, Otto Frank, where they remained for two years. During this time Anne kept a record of her life under Nazi occupation in a diary. In August 1944 they were betrayed by an unknown informant and sent to concentration camps, where Anne and her sister died from typhus in March 1945.

Otto Frank survived and upon returning to Amsterdam he discovered that Anne’s diary had been saved and he had it published. Anne’s diary has become one of the worlds most widely read books and Anne has become one of the most renowned victims of the Holocaust.

  2. Good point, Barbara.

    I like this idea. It honors artists.

  3. Interesting tourism concept, visiting graves.

  4. I own a book on New York City where you can take a literary walk around the whole city of where writers lived, ate and hung out. When I travel around NYC, I’ll be using the book to see where they went… some are going to be my favourites while others are going to be infamous! :D
