In May 1940, Germany invaded the Netherlands, and the occupation government began to persecute Jews by the implementation of restrictive and discriminatory laws; mandatory registration and segregation soon followed.

On the morning of Monday, 6 July 1942, the Frank family moved into their hiding place, a three-story space entered from a landing above the Opekta offices on the Prinsengracht, where some of his most trusted employees would be their helpers. The entrance to the hiding place was concealed behind a movable bookcase.

Anna Frank was describing the life behind the bookcase in her diary and continued writing regularly until her last entry of 1 August 1944. The Franks and their friends were arrested on the 4th of August and moved to different concentration camps.
