Anne Frank is important precisely because she (and her diart) put a face on the Holocaust. Not only a human face but the face of a 'girl' - it not only showed the willingness of the local population to resist German occupation, it also demonstrated the complicity of other sections of the local population with the German occupation. In the end it was not a random search that found Anne Frank's hiding place, it was a worker who noted the radio station had changed who became suspicious and reported this to the Germans.
