Anne Frank: Google commemorates the 75th anniversary of Anne Frank's diary

Over time, Anne Frank's diary has become one of the world's best-selling books, and continues to serve as the inspiration for several plays and films.

Google on Saturday commemorated the 75th anniversary of the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, with a Google doodle video depicting moments from her life in the book.

The doodle also honoured what would have been the teenage diarist and Jewish Holocaust victim’s 93rd birthday earlier this month, on June 12.

Google Doodle art director Thoka Maer created the doodles. The German illustrator has talked about her sense of responsibility to preserve the memory of the Holocaust as a major factor in the illustration process.

Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929, to Otto and Edith Frank in Frankfurt, Germany.

Her family moved to Amsterdam in Netherlands in 1934, after the Nazi Party headed by Adolf Hitler gained power in Germany.
