... of the house where the secret annex was. Anne plus her family and another family hid here for two years (July 6, 1942 - August 4, 1944) until being betrayed then arrested. They were taken to Auschwitz where Anne died one month prior to liberation, from typhus. Her father was the only one, out of 8 ppl hiding, who survived.
