Thirteen year old Anne Frank is stuck in an attic for 2 years during World War II. This can sometimes take a toll on one's personality. Anne Frank's book titled "The Diary of Anne Frank" takes people through what it was like to be a Jewish teenager during World War II. Anne and her family was forced to move into hiding, because of the harsh measures being taken by Nazis to rid Europe of Jews. During Anne's time in the annex, readers get to know her well, as she changes from the beginning, to the end of her time in hiding. While Anne at the beginning is different from Anne at the end, she still is consistent in some of her personality traits throughout the entire book. When the tyranny of Hitler began, Anne’s concerns changed, along with
During this scene, Anne confessed that she had a nice side, but she was scared to show it. She would be nice, but she did not know what people would think about her. I think this is a big act of kindness because when you dig deeper and read on, you can find that she told Mr.Frank that the mean Anne comes out and the nice Anne stays on the inside. This shows how hard she has tried and nothing would work, she was kind hearted and felt differently
Anne had a heart filled with hope and had a bright future ahead of her, as the war progressed she began to see the suffering of the people around her. Everyone did love her personality. She was very curious, talkative, and playful and was lots of fun to be around. Anne had a hunger for knowledge and was very optimistic. Writing was always her favorite thing. It calmed her from the rages of the world, she could just write and be herself. When she went into hiding she lived in a place called the Secret Annex. A Secret Annex was a building that was placed between two buildings. The first floor was Otto Frank's business and the second was the hiding spot. The real name in Dutch meant behind or back, so in the diary, they used the term Secret Annex. For over 2 years she lived in the secret home, and that is when she got her journal at the age of 13. Almost every day she would write about her current life and the things going on around her. She would write about how much she missed her friends from school and often missed being outside out in the open air. When the Van Pels moved in they had a son named Peter, Anne would play around with Peter, take his shoes and hide them. She thought it was very amusing, Peter didn't quite think so.
The end of Anne's story makes me feel very frustrated because Anne suffered in the annex for two years but was still captured by the Nazi's. It would have saved Anne so much suffering if she was captured by the Nazi's early on and be killed earlier. Anne and her family worked very hard to stay alive during the Holocaust, but it was of no use because most of them died in concentration camps. On the other hand, it is pure luck that Anne was given a diary and people all around the world can read it today. Anne's diary makes people feel more connected to the Holocaust and the horrors of living through
In the beginning, Anne’s naivety is apparent, but she makes a sensible choice by attempting to stay positive by partaking in enjoyable, everyday activities, such as singing and dancing, which allows her to distract herself from everything that is going on outside of the annex. Then, she maintains her positivity by making presents for her friends and family to remind them to never to leave behind past traditions even in desperate times, demonstrating her growth in maturity. In the end, when times become tougher than ever, Anne turns to her diary even more so to hide away from reality, giving her a genuine chance to collect her thoughts and find herself as a woman. Anne’s mixture of positivity and maturity allow her to face adversity with a smile on her face and teaches readers that they can do the same if they find ways to alleviate their burdens while staying positive. Although Anne does not survive the harsh, inhumane actions committed upon her, through her optimism and unwillingness to give up, Anne Frank leaves a long lasting memory of her life and inspires others to do the
At first, Anne was terrified to go into hiding but her positivity and hope showed and taught many people lessons on how you should look at life. Anne had such a big influence on the people who read her diary. The play that was constructed off of her diary writings really lets us understand how and what Anne was feeling along with the others in the house. The Franks in addition to their friends, had people who helped them out while they were in hiding. This is one reason why Anne would have thought that people were really good at heart. One prime example is Miep Gies. She helped the Franks even though she was not faithful in the Jewish religion. Meip replenished everyone in the group by bringing them what they needed. She had a well thought out tactic that helped her be able to bring supplies to the secret annex. She never gave up on them and helped them through their entire hiding. This shows that people may not believe in the same things as you, but deep in their heart, they are willing to help anyone in need. The group of people hiding in the secret annex was in need, they had no way of getting food or any other supplies. This is where Miep came in to help them. She brought them the food, plus all of the supplies that they needed, therefore, making them live much longer than they should have. In the play, you could tell how happy the family was to see her. On page 326, we read, “Thank you, Miepia. You shouldn’t have done it.” this was
Don’t you hate it when your family and strangers treat you in a harsh way. Anne Frank was treated harshly by some people in the secret annex people would yell at her call her spoiled lazy and was always telling her what to do. But some people treated her nicely like Peter VanDaan and her dad in a way that made her feel loved by some people around her. Anne was a twelve year old girl when she was forced into hiding because she was a Jew in Nazi territory during WW2. Anne is treated by the people in the annex in many ways and that effects her character in such a way that changes her character.
The Holocaust was a time of war where many families were separated from one another and many had died from this tragic event. Although, from the book “Diary of Anne Frank” a Jewish girl named Anne that had been affected by the Holocaust had said, “In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart.” Even though Anne and her family faced many hardships during the Holocaust Anne still saw the good in it all, and after reading the book I have to agree with Anne’s quote. One of the main reasons of why I am siding with Anne is because of Peter’s actions throughout the book and how his actions rapidly changed once Anne showed kindness to him. However, I can see how some people may disagree with Anne’s quote throughout Mr. Van Daan’s horrible actions throughout the book.
That is truly amazing. Anne makes everyone happier and just smile more. She can bring the best out of people and, in situations. Anne is just being a teenager and trying to have fun. I truly hope I can be like Anne someday. This girl went through torture and pain and still kept a smile on her face. Meanwhile if teenage doesn't acquire an iPhone they have a fit. We all need to take lessons and look at what's really important in life. Anne knew that family is more important than anything. She would do anything for them, it played a major role in making sure everyone wanted to continue on the journey they were all fighting for. If Anne was not a part of this hiding, who knows what would have happened. I'm so glad I was able to be taught a lesson from such an aspiring young woman, who had a horrible fate. We can not even comprehend the full story on what went on in the attic. There could've been much more terrible situations that happened in hiding that we will never know about. Nobody can judge anything that happened in hiding, because they will never truly know how it felt to be cooped up for two years. We should all give the Frank family our most respect. Especially to have a little girl who believed in people so
In the collection book on page 307, When Mr.Dussel arrives at the secret annex all of the members start to ask him questions about what has been happening on the outside of the secret annex. Anne was very worried about her friend Jopie and her family, and she wanted to know what happened what has happened to them. That showed that Anne was caring about her friend. The second evidence I found was on page 344, which was when Peter’s dad, Mr.Van Daan wanted to get rid of Peter’s cat Mouschi because he thought that Mouschi was consuming too much food. Peter was determined to leave, but Anne stood up for him and said he could not leave or he would be taken to a concentration camp right away. The third piece of evidence I found was another quote from Anne Frank. The quote goes like, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” I think that Anne made that quote because she was the type of person that was always going to give and never expect to receive. That made Anne a very caring person. That is why Anne Frank was a very caring
“Despite everything I believe that people are really good at his shows heart.”, writes Anne Frank. Despite her dire circumstances, Anne Frank wrote optimistically about people’s hearts. Anne and her family were forced into hiding when Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany. Along with her family another Jewish family, the VanDaans, stayed at the Secret Annex with hope of outlasting the war and hate in which Hitler has instilled upon Germany. As a gift from her father Anne has received a diary, in which she writes down her experiences and thoughts as she hid in the Secret Annex. Anne’s optimistic idea about people's hearts is false, some people always stay hateful always placing blame on other, bad people’s reactions to something will never be result in good, however some people might argue that people are just trying to good with bad methods.
“It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” (Anne Frank) Anne Frank was one of the many children who fell victim to the Holocaust during the World War II. Anne’s story is nothing short of a tragedy; she died at the early age of fifteen from Typhus while being held by the Nazi Regime, in the concentration camp Bergen-Belsen. Before dying, Anne and her family went into hiding and lived secretly in her father's office building in the Netherlands. While living in the “Annex,” a secret hiding place, she developed many interests such as reading and writing. Anne is famous because she is one of the best-known victims of the Holocaust, her story has been shared with millions in a publication of her diary, and through her writing’s she introduces many people to the massacre and its horror.
The Author came out with a strong out look on the situation of Anne Franks Development. Anne Frank was a little girl who lived in Amsterdam with her Father, they lived a normal life until the Holocaust took place and for forced Anne into hiding. Sadly the Nazis found out about the Franks hiding and who they were staying with, Otto Frank was they only one who survived. Anne Frank knew that she would even be living a sad and scary life. "Anne’s Voice. I expect I should be describing what it feels like to go into hiding. But I really don’t know yet myself. I only know it’s funny never to be able to go outdoors . .
