Mangaluru: The ‘Diary of a Young Girl’ by Jewish German-diarist Anne Frank was published 75 years ago on June 25. To mark this occasion, Google found a unique way to honour Anne Frank through an animated slideshow on its search engine.

The Nazi oppression that Anne and how the members of her family endured (while hiding in her father’s office) are presented in Google’s Doodle.

The doodle features moments from her life and real excerpts from her diary that she kept when she and her friends and family spent more than two years hiding from Nazi rule.

The doodles created by Google Doodle Art Director Thoka Maer have gathered attention among people. The German illustrator mentioned 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. Jews were targeted by the Nazis, who forced them to transfer to brutal concentration camps, execution, and imprisonment. Many fled in fear. Like them, her parents, Otto and Edith Frank, and her family fled to Amsterdam, when Adolf Hitler assumed power in Germany in 1934.

It is believed that Anne received the diary as a gift for her birthday. Ever since she wrote about her life in her diary. The Frank family was arrested in August 1944 by the Nazi Secret Service, and after their detention, Nazi forces in Germany sent Anne and her older sister Margot Frank to the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where they died a few months later. Anne Frank was just 15 years old.

When her father Otto found her diary later, he was convinced to publish it by his friends, and the first batch of copies was printed in June 1947. The diary was later translated into more than 70 languages and is still an important source for understanding the suffering that Jews endured under Nazi rule.
