Most of the time Anne would write in her diary about how she was feeling or things she wanted to do. They hid in the secret annex for two years, but one day Nazis stormed in and captured Anne and her family. Next they were taken to a concentration camp in the northeastern Netherlands. There Anne, her mother and Margot were separated from their father. All of them died except Anne 's father, Otto. When he returned to the annex he found Anne 's diary and later got it published. Anne 's story is well know now all around the world and everyone’s story is a little different than others.
