Well, she was in Bergen-Belsen, a concentration camp famous for having diseases and typhus was contagious. I think you can also get it from drinking contaminated water.

___

In early 1945 there was an uncontrolled typhus epidemic at Bergen-Belsen and at least 35,000 prisoners died from it. In the camps typhus was usually carried from one person to another by fleas.

Anne Frank likely contracted typhoid from contaminated food or water while she was in hiding during World War II. The unsanitary living conditions and close quarters with other individuals may have contributed to the spread of the disease in their hiding place.

Anne Frank may have died from typhoid fever, but it's impossible to be certain. Her father was the only member of the family that survived the concentration camp.

Typhus was really spreading during the Holocaust times. So many people died from the disease. Anne Frank and her sister both died from typhus. Typhus is a contagious disease.

Anne never had Typhoid. She died of Typhus, a completely different disease, though it sounds similar. Typhus is transmitted by lice and/or fleas.
