Sadly, she died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp only months before the camp was liberated by Allied forces in April 1945. Anne, her mother, Edith and sister Margot, all perished in concentration camps.

Her father, Otto Frank, survived his ordeal in Auschwitz concentration camp and when he returned to Amsterdam came across his daughter's diary.
