His father, William Cary Wright — was an orator, music teacher, occasional lawyer, and itinerant minister. Originally from MassachusettsWilliam Wright had been a Baptist minister, but he later joined his wife's family in the Unitarian faith.
Background[ edit ] During the Nazi occupation of the NetherlandsAnne Frank received a blank diary as one of her presents on June 12,her 13th birthday. They were joined by Hermann van PelsOtto's business partner, including his wife Auguste and their teenage son Peter.
He was licensed to manufacture and sell pectina substance used to make jam. He stopped running his business while everybody was in hiding. But once he returned, he found his employees running it.
The rooms that everyone hid in were concealed behind a movable bookcase in the same building as Opekta. In the published version, names were changed: With the assistance of a group of Otto Frank's trusted colleagues, they remained hidden for two years and one month. In Augustthey were discovered and deported to Nazi concentration camps.
They were long thought to have been betrayed, although there are indications that their discovery may have been accidental, that the police raid had actually targeted "ration fraud".
Anne died when she was 15 years old in Bergen-Belsenfrom typhus. The exact date of her death is unknown, and has long been believed to be in early March, a few weeks before the prisoners were liberated by British troops in April However, new research in indicated that Anne may have died in February.
The first volume the red-and-white checkered autograph book covers the period between June 14 and December 5, Since the second surviving volume a school exercise book begins on December 22,and ends on April 17,it is assumed that the original volume or volumes between December and December were lost - presumably after the arrest, when the hiding place was emptied on Nazi instructions.
However, this missing period is covered in the version Anne rewrote for preservation. The third existing volume which was also a school exercise book contains entries from April 17 to August 1,when Anne wrote for the last time before her arrest.
They were kept safe, and given to Otto Frank after the war, with the original notes, when Anne's death was confirmed in the spring of Anne used the above-mentioned names for her annex-mates in the first volume, from September 25, until November 13,when the first notebook ends.
On May 20,she notes that she started re-drafting her diary with future readers in mind. By the time she started the second existing volume, she was writing only to Kitty. Dear Kitty[ edit ] There has been much conjecture about the identity or inspiration of Kitty, who in Anne's revised manuscript is the sole recipient of her letters.
Inthe critic Sietse van der Hoek wrote that the name referred to Kitty Egyedi, a prewar friend of Anne's. Van der Hoek may have been informed by the publication A Tribute to Anne Frankprepared by the Anne Frank Foundation, which assumed a factual basis for the character in its preface by the then-chairman of the Foundation, Henri van Praag, and accentuated this with the inclusion of a group photograph that singles out Anne, Sanne Ledermann, Hanneli Goslarand Kitty Egyedi.
Anne does not mention Kitty Egyedi in any of her writings in fact, the only other girl mentioned in her diary from the often reproduced photo, other than Goslar and Ledermann, is Mary Bos, whose drawings Anne dreamed about in and the only comparable example of Anne's writing unposted letters to a real friend are two farewell letters to Jacqueline van Maarsenfrom September Kitty became so idealized and started to lead her own life in the diary that it ceases to matter who is meant by 'Kitty'.
She observed that she had many "friends" and equally many admirers, but by her own definition no true, dear friend with whom she could share her innermost thoughts.
She originally thought her girl friend Jacque van Maarsen would be this person, but that was only partially successful.+ free ebooks online.
