On September 2, 1944 Anne Frank was sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp. The 15-year-old girl was forced to have her head shaved and was branded with a numerical tattoo. During the day, she had to do slave labor, hauling rocks and digging sod.
Within a year, the young teen was dead. Diseases ran rampant because of the horrid conditions of the concentration camp, but Frank’s exact cause of death is not known. She became famous, post-death, after her diary was found and published. "The Diary of a Young Girl" documented her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, and is now one of the world’s most famous books.
