The mood of the characters has been directly affected because of the historical events that take place throughout the story. Mrs. Frank is feeling very down about the situation involving the war, when she states, “Think of the thousands dying in the war, every day. Think of the people in concentration camps.” (Goodrich, Hackett, 164) Whenever Mrs. Frank thinks negatively about the situation, Anne gets very frustrated with her. She does not believe that anyone should be thinking with a fixed mindset at a time like this. She expresses
A character I would consider a best friend is Otto Frank , because of his generous nature. Otto Frank is considered as a strong leader and role model in Anne’s eyes. He is very highly respected by Anne and many others. When hiding in the secret annex, Otto provides protection and care for many people. The story takes place during the Holocaust when the Nazis invade Europe. War is soon to break out and the Franks, a Jewish family, are greatly threatened by the current events. Bound with many restrictions many necessities are poor quality , scare or not available. At this time , the Franks, like many other Jewish families , suffer the threat of concentration camps . As the situation is getting worse, the Franks escape Nazi clutches many times.
If Mr. Van Daan wasn’t in the community at all, the Franks probably would’ve had a better chance at survival through the annex. This play takes place with 8 people hiding away in an attic to be safe from the Nazis, this is all happening during World War two. The title of this play is The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Good and Albert Hackett. Mr. Van Daan was business partners with Mr. Frank and they were exceptionally close, yet he is still an egocentric and greedy man. Despite how the Fanks welcome Mr. Van Daan into their home, he still betrays the trust their trust by being selfish and greedy.
A good leader is someone who leads or commands a group and has an open mind for others opinions. Ralph from Lord of the Flies, is a great example of this. At the beginning of the story, Ralph picks up a conch and blows into it like a trumpet to call all the kids on the island. This is an ideal example of being a leader, Ralph makes the decision on regrouping with the other survivors to help each other. Another example of Ralph being a good leader is when the little ones and everyone was all wild and uncontrollable Ralph calms them down and directs them to help them survive. Throughout the book Ralph shows that he is a good leader.
Furthermore, a key component in convicting Frank was an emphasis on the fabricated rumors of his perverseness and sexuality, something that was feared greatly in Atlanta (Lindermann 239). This fear of Jewish sexuality arose from the myths of sexual proclivities of Jews who could violate the south’s pure and vulnerable white women (Lindermann 239), and the media understood that the south was extremely protective over their white women, which allowed for them to further implicate Frank of his guilty verdict and disruptive fixed nature as the truth. A girl who would work in a factory was “to make a prostitute of her” (Melnick 49) and the public pushed a narrative that stated that Mary died protecting her virtue, giving up her life “rather than
Decisiveness is an essential quality in a good leader, according to 80% of the people polled by Pew Research Center. In Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the boys who are stranded on the island demonstrates many qualities as they try to survive. Some of the qualities the boys in the group demonstrate are negative, but many are also positive. The boys who try to be the leaders often demonstrate confidence, knowledge, determinedness, and honesty; these are all essential traits of being a successful leader.
Intro: How long can you stay in a closed area-one, two, or maybe even three days? Well, what about three years? As you can see, Anne Frank was one of those people who had to stay in an apartment for three years, hiding from the Nazi’s, just because she was Jewish. Anne Frank had a very reasonable quote that was quite agreeable. “In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart.” After reading The Diary of Anne Frank I would have to agree with Anne and her quote. She went through rough times during the hiding, but she persevered through it. Throughout the play, there was a certain character that showed kindness and that was helpful, this person would be Miep. Another character that I would
Frank could be described as a protective person. When Mrs. Frank is telling Anne not to talk back to people she tries to let Anne know that she can come on too strongly at times. She says in Act I scene III, “I'm not afraid that anyone going to walk all over you, Anne. I'm afraid for other people, that you'll walk all over them. I don't know what happens to you, Anne.
What I believe makes a good leader is a group or person who takes responsibility. Who manages their own tasks and makes time to get things done. Encouragement would be another characteristic of a leader to encourage as a team not a group to strive for the best and keep others moving along. Another good trait would be Trust, without trust it’s hard to get by and trust the other to get tasks done and accomplish the same goal. Each of the qualities is the
Otto Frank is an inspiration to many. He came back from a concentration camp only to find out he was the only one that survived in his family. Otto Frank was born on May 12, 1889 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He had three siblings, an older brother named Robert Frank, a younger brother named, Herbert Frank, and a younger sister named, Helene Frank. Him and his family were considered liberal Jews. Liberal Judaism is a modern form of the religion. Miep Gies states this in her autobiography: “The calm one, the children’s teacher, the most logical [...] When a decision had to be made, all eyes turned to Mr. Frank” (Stichting). Frank studied art at the University of Heidelberg. After being given an offer by his brother, Frank moved to the United States in September, 1909. Unfortunately, Frank had to return on
The end of, “The Diary of Anne Frank”, her father Otto Frank was talking to the women that helped them in the annex, Meip Gies, after finding out Anne and Margot had died. Miep gave Otto the diary and while Otto was reading Anne’s diary he saw that she wanted her diary to be published. So I think the sequel of, “The Diary of Anne Frank” should be about her father, Otto Frank, coming to the conclusion to publish her diary like she wanted and what he went through publishing it. Also how he is dealing with the lose of his whole family.
The event known as the holocaust was a horrible event for jews, many suffered and millions died.

The invasion of the allies affected the moods of the characters by when getting the news
