How long was Anne Frank in hiding?

User Avatar
Anne Frank hid for 2 years, July 6th, 1942 to August 4th, 1944. 25 months (which is 2 years and 1 month) On August 4, 1944 a German policeman found the annex (which was the secret place that the Jews were hiding in) and arrested the people. They threw Anne's diary on the floor because she always kept it in her fathers briefcase and the German policeman used the brief case for the jewelery. Miep Gies went back later, rescued the diary and gave it to Anne's father after the war. He published the diary. Two years and one month - almost to the day. Anne Frank was in hiding from Monday, July 6th, 1942 until August 4th, 1944. In total, she was in hiding for 2 years and one month.

Why did Anne have to leave her cat behind when she went into hiding?

User Avatar
They left a note giving instructions about who would take care of their cat. It was not proper to take a cat into an annex. They knew the space was little. Because she couldn't take the cat because the cat would make noise when they had to be quiet, and they could take a few things as posseions.
