Otto Frank

Otto Frank (May 12, 1889 - 1980) was the father of Anne Frank and the only member of the Frank Family to survive the Holocaust.

He and his family had gone into hinding in Amsterdam, after Margot-his older daughter was called in to work for the government. They were living with the Van Dann family, and soon Mr. Dussle, a dentist hid with them. They hid in the attic of a warehouse in which Mr. Frank once worked. Stairs leading up to the attic were hidden behind a bolted bookcase.
