The were happy and secure there for a while, but then war broke out, and in 1940 Germany invaded their new home, and the persecution started again.

Jewish pupils and teachers were excluded from ordinary schools, so special ones were opened for them. Anne attended the Jewish Lyceum in Amsterdam, where this photo was taken on the 11th of December 1941.

Six months later she and her family were in hiding, and Anne started writing her diary.
