Famed Holocaust Victim. Mother of Diarist Anne Frank. Born in Aachen to parents Abraham Holländer and Rosa Stern, Edith had three siblings: Walter, Julius, and Rosa. In 1924, Edith met Otto Frank and they were married on May 12, 1925 in Aachen's synagogue. Their first daughter, Margot, was born in 1926 whereas their second daughter, Anne, was born in 1929. Adolf Hilter's rising power forced the Frank family to relocate to Amsterdam in 1933. For several years, Edith and her family lived comfortably. Then in July of 1942, Edith's oldest daughter, Margot, received a call-up notice for work detail in one of the camps. The Frank family quickly moved into a location above Otto Frank's office: 263 Prinsengracht. For two years, Edith, her family, the van Pels family, and Fritz Pfeffer hid while isolated from the rest of the world. Sources remember Edith as "quiet" who often quarreled with her younger daughter. On August 4, 1944, the Gestapo raided the Secret Annex courtesy of an unknown informant. Edith spent three days imprisoned in Amstelveenweg. She was then transported to Westerbork Transit Camp. On September 3, 1944, Edith Frank was transported to Auschwitz where she was selected for the gas chambers on October 30, 1944. A friend and her managed to escape to another section of the camp. She died twenty days before Auschwitz was liberated. Cause of Death: Malnutrition
