Have you ever had a diary that became famous? Annelies Marie Frank did. Also known around the world as Anne Frank, this young girl's diary changed the life of many people. Anne Frank was born on June 12th, 1929 in Frankfurt am Main, Wiemar Germany and lived until early March 1945. She was only 15 when she died of typhus in a concentration camp in Germany.

Accomplishments and Obstacles

In her short life she did a lot of amazing things such as writing a diary that became famous after she died. It was translated in 80 different languages! Also, she kept her diary all throughout World War 2. She survived hiding, until she and her family were arrested and thrown into a concentration camp to die. Another amazing thing was she never gave up on hope and that's really hard. Some obstacles she had to overcome were being sent away from her home into a concentration camp run by the German. Second, when her dad was sick with the flu and they couldn't go to the doctor while in hiding. Those are some accomplishments and obstacles of Anne Frank.

Another trait that makes Anne Frank a hero is valor- Anne Frank had to risk her life to go into hiding because if her and her family gets caught they would get thrown into a concentration camp and get killed.
