“Since her death, The Diary of Anne Frank has been published in over 60 languages and has inspired movies, plays, and generations of girls and boys for whom keeping a diary wasn’t a cliché but a means to survival.

Frank, only age 15 at her death from typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany, inspired a legion of young men and women who dreamed bigger than they were allowed to. While she was in hiding in the Secret Annex of the house in Amsterdam, she kept multiple diaries and notes written on scraps of paper that eventually became compiled together after her death.” – via Happy 86th Birthday to Anne Frank: On Choosing Kindness
