June 12, 1942, Anne Frank turned 13 years old, and it was on that day that she received her diary which she named Kitty. Over the next two years, it became not only a reflection of her life, but of the world at that time. On August 1, 1944 she wrote her last entry. Shortly thereafter, on August 4th, her family was discovered. She died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Feb. or March of 1945.
