In the Diary of Anne Frank there is symbolism. An example of this is how symbolism is about the Star of David. Goodrich writes,”We had to wear yellow stars”(Goodrich page 703). This represents symbolism because the Jews had to wear the Star of David. Yellow stars is another word for a symbol that the Nazi’s made the Jews wear on all of their clothes. The Star of David symbolizes faith and hatred from the Nazi’s. It is very hard for Anne to burn her yellow star. Goodrich writes,”You can’t throw…? Something they branded you with …? That they made you wear so they could split on you? I know. I know. But after all, it is the Star of David, isn’t it?”(Goodrich page 709). In conclusion, this quote symbolizes faith.
In “The Diary of Anne Frank” there are many different objects and people that are symbolic to something abstract. One example of symbolism in Anne’s diary is when her and Peter have a discussion about the star of David. In the play and throughout World War II the star of David symbolizes a deep hatred. It represents a deep hatred because during the time of WWII with the Jews getting murdered and sent to concentration camps they were forced to wear garments with the star sewn onto them. Anne records, “You can’t throw…? Something they branded you with…? That they made you wear so they could spit on you” (Pg 709 P.22). This quote justifies that while wearing the star of David the Jews won’t receive respect and they will be treated with rude and
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.
From her perspective, Anne Frank, a young girl, displays her fear of being discovered by writing down her experiences.

Although written from a subjective point of view, the diary is considered reliable as it is a personal type of writing, thoughts the owner of the diary would not disclose to another. However, as the first edition of the diary was published after the death of Anne Frank on the 25th of June, 1947, and having it edited by her father, Otto Frank, it does not display an accurate representation of the two years Anne wrote in hiding as his father decided what would be published.

Symbols unlock the secrets of a story. Hawthorne, in The Scarlet Letter, uses many symbols to represent different things. Some symbols represent the same thing. The letter “A” has many meanings, each character has their own meanings, and even the different parts of nature are symbols. Also, apart from providing structure for the novel, each scaffold scene conveys something different. One could say, arguably, that nearly everything in The Scarlet Letter is a symbol for something else.
The Yellow Star was a patch the Jews were forced to wear, this patch had a significant importance during the Holocaust, and the Yellow Star helped the Nazi identify the Jews during the Holocaust.
