Edith Frank (née Holländer; 16 January 1900 – 6 January 1945) was the mother of Holocaust diarist Anne Frank. Edith, her husband Otto, and their daughters Anne and Margot, as well as four other Jewish people were hidden in Amsterdam from 1942 to 1944, until the whole group was betrayed. Edith and her daughters were sent to Auschwitz. Edith starved to death twenty days before the camp was liberated by the Red Army. Her daughters both died a few weeks later.

Edith Frank in "The Eighth-Grade History Class Visits the Hebrew Home for the Aging"Edit

Edith Frank, her family, and four fellow Jews were able to hide for the duration of World War II, emerging from their hiding place, the Secret Annexe, only after the Netherlands were liberated in 1945. The eight people quickly dispersed. Edith and her husband moved to Switzerland.

In 2013, Edith's daughter Anne, now elderly and living in the Hebrew Home for the Aging in Los Angeles, shared some of her experiences with the eighth-grade history class from nearby Junipero Middle School. She described her mother as a "cold fish."
