The Diary of Anne Frank
The Diary of Anne Frank Play by Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett Adaptation by Wendy Kesselman October 12, 13, 14*, 19, 20, 21* During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, Anne Frank began to keep a diary on June 14, 1942, two days after her 13th birthday, and twenty-two days before going into hiding with her mother, father, sister, and four other people. The group went into hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father’s office building in Amsterdam. The sealed-off upper-rooms also contained a hidden room which the Franks would hide in when Nazi soldiers were investigating the buildings for harbored Jews. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal in August 1944, which resulted in their deportation to Nazi concentration camps.
