Anne Frank wrote her famous diary entries in the form of letters addressed to which name?
On this day in 1942, Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl living in Amsterdam, received a diary as a gift from her parents on her 13th birthday. A month later, she and her family went into hiding from the Nazis in rooms behind her father’s office. While hiding, Anne decided to think of her diary as a friend, whom she named Kitty. Frank's diary entries often started with a salutation, usually addressed to "Kitty." So who was Kitty? Some say Kitty was an imaginary friend, while other scholars believe that Anne borrowed the name from her favorite book series, Joop ter Heul, in which the title character’s best friend was named Kitty Francken.
