Google Doodle pays tribute to Anne Frank

Google is paying tribute to Anne Frank, the teen diarist, who died in 1945 during the Holocaust, through a series of animated pictures as a slideshow.

Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany, but her family soon moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands to escape the increasing discrimination and violence faced by millions of minorities at the hands of the growing Nazi party. After millions of Jews were forced to flee their homes or go into hiding, Anne’s family went into hiding in 1942, in a secret annex in her father’s office building to avoid persecution.

Over the following 25 months in hiding, Anne wrote a heartfelt account of teenage life in the secret annex. In one of the excerpts Google has displayed, Anne says, “I feel like a songbird whose wings have been ripped off and who keeps hurting itself against the bars of its dark cage.”
