Anne Frank Anne Frank is famous for the diary she kept while hiding from Nazis. Eventually, she was caught and died in a prison camp, but through her writing she emerged victorious. Through the two-year period of her hiding, her writing grows in subtlety and maturity and she makes peace with her sister and her mother, with whom she had previously been at odds. Through her suffering, she gains wisdom beyond her years and becomes a talented writer even at the age of 14. She opens up about human relationships, spirituality, and becomes herself a sort of open book, a work of living art. The Nazis took her life, but her courageous words are still read and studied by schoolchildren today. When we contemplate and struggle with difficult situation, we too grow in spiritual insight.
