Aug. 4, 1944: During World War II, Nazi police raided the secret annex of a building in Amsterdam and arrested eight people, including 15-year-old Anne Frank, whose diary became a famous account of the Holocaust. (She later died at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.) Frank started her diary in the apartment at Merwedeplein in southern Amsterdam in June 1942, weeks before disappearing into the secret annex of a canal-side warehouse in the city during the German occupation in World War Two.
