A survivor's journey

The story of Anne Frank has resonated around the world. A teenager in Holland during World War II, Frank, her family and another family hid from the Germans in the attic of an office building until their hiding place was betrayed and the eight people in hiding were sent to concentration camps, where most of them — including Anne — died. During their time in hiding, Frank kept a diary that has since become world-famous.

But few people know her family's story also has roots in Tuscaloosa.

Years before the Jewish population in Germany was attacked in the Holocaust, Rabbi Davin Schoenberger married Anne Frank's parents at his synagogue in Aachen, Germany.
