The importance of Anne Frank
Sixty-five years ago this August, Anne Frank and her family were discovered hiding in an annex in Amsterdam and sent to concentration camps. Though she perished, her diary became one of the most compelling and poignant stories to come out of the holocaust. Midmorning examines the lingering power of Anne Frank's "Diary of a Young Girl."
