People can visit the building where Anne Frank hid. Pages of her diary are on display there. Anne wrote about many topics. Sometimes she described what happened. She told about fights with her family. Sometimes she wondered about the future. She also wrote about boys she liked.

Miep Gies was one of the six people who helped the Franks hide. After Nazis arrested everyone in the annex, Miep found Anne’s diary. Miep kept it safe until the war was over. Then she gave it to Anne’s father. Without Miep, Anne’s diary may never have become a book.
