When she was only around four years old, she moved to Amsterdam in Netherlands, after Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party gained control over Germany. In May 1940, the German police trapped her Amsterdam and she lost her German Citizenship in 1941, thus becoming stateless. Then, the hardship and persecution began for little Anne and her family. They went from one place to another to hide. Her father, Otto Frank, worked until the family was arrested by the Gestapo (secret state police) on August 4, 1944.

There is much news circulating in the media about the uncomfortable relationship between Nitish and RCP. Some time ago, RCP had a free hand to run the government or party.
