Frank published her first article on the 20th of June 1942 and after moving into the Achterhuis or the Secret Annex, she began writing frequently and in-depth about the restrictions imposed on Dutch Jews, her experience of hiding in the dark and her aspirations, as well as the relationships she had with her family members. The year 1942 was the time that Anne as well as her extended family, as well as four other Jewish friends, were compelled to remain in a secret part of their father’s office building in order to avoid being targeted by the authorities.
