Anne Frank, a name? A book? A girl? A prisoner? Anne was all these things. She lived in a world ruled by the Germans. Adolf Hitler, the ruler of the Nazi Germans ordered for the whole Jew population to be destroyed. He ordered all Jews to be taken from their homes and to be sent to labor or death camps, also known as concentration camps. Once Anne’s family heard of this they went into hiding with four other Jews. After two years of hiding, not being able to go outside, talk or move a lot, or being able to use the W.C. at certain times of the day, the Franks, Vaan Dans, and Mr. Dussel were turned in by a random citizen and were arrested. Before that time Anne had a diary where she wrote her deepest most inner thoughts. She once said, “Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.” I disagree with Anne’s statement, “Despite everything, I believe people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank was growing up in the era of Hitler and anti-semitism. She and her family were all accustomed to living a comfortable, normal, and fairly affluent lifestyle. Adolf Hitler, the German dictator of the time, believed that Jewish people deserved to be confined and killed on a massive scale. The Franks moved out of their house only with limited food into a secret room in an office building, cramped together silently with nothing to occupy their minds except each other and books. This silent, stealthy, boring lifestyle made life incredibly difficult for the hyperactive person Anne was. Not only that, she and her family lived in constant fear of being caught. Any small noise would have been enough to separate the family and send them to concentration camps across Europe. Anne had to overcome the adversity of this new lifestyle of fear and absent-mindedness. Secondly, The Franks shared space with other people in hiding. In this instance, food had to be rationed to an extreme. The family did not expect the war to go on for this long. Of course, they could not be free people again until the war was over. Only small bits of food could
Anne Frank was a fearless woman even when she was faced with her own death. Optimistic until the end, she was able to see the good even in a terrible situation. During World War 2, the Nazis in Germany were hunting down Jewish people. Anne Frank's family needed to hide because they were Jewish people. Anne was trying to stay optimistic even though it might be her last day on earth. First, Anne lets a complete stranger Mr. Dussel in her own room to sleep. Also, Anne loved to write good things in her diary. Finally, Anne thought that the Annex was like a summer vacation house, but in reality was in was an attic. Anne always tried to stay optimistic instead of thinking negative things. Anne had an optimistic view about life and always wanted to find a pencil to jot good thoughts down on paper even when Anne and her family were in danger.
Anne Frank once said in her diary that her dream was to become a published author and to live beyond her death. Even when living in a cramped space with little to eat and not much to do for two years she kept her dream alive by studying new languages, reading books about history and keeping her diary. She remained positive even in these tough conditions by saying that she was going to write multiple books when the war was over and become a bestselling author. Now, over 70 years after her death Anne’s diary is being read in classrooms all over the world and she is one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust. The diary has touched many people and given the whole world an idea of what it was like to be a Jew during the war. Therefore,
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.
Growing up during the Holocaust was a rough time especially for Anne. Growing up in a small cramped annex with strict rules and a family she hardly knew was not an easy transition from her living in her own home with some to no rules. To go into hiding Anne had to give up all of her friends and leave the school she was attending. It was like her and her family just disappeared. While staying in the annex for two years Anne has shown many characteristics of a survivor such as being friendly, becoming composed and having an optimistic attitude.
From Anne’s journal we learn that her day to day life has changed for the worst. But Anne never thought bad even though things around her were falling apart in the holocaust. She always tried to make the best out of her experience. Anne, her family, and others stayed in a hiding place throughout the holocaust. But before they went into their hiding place the Frank family received a call-up from the S.S saying that they are coming for the Franks. Therefore we can assume that the people in the hiding place feared getting caught by the S.S everyday. Even though Anne was not able to do much Anne mentioned that at least it’s better than being in a concentration camp cell. Although the Frank family was in a time of chaos they tried to live as normal
Circumstances: Jeanne- She and her family were typical Americans living in Los Angeles. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, her father was considered a suspect and was shipped off to Bismark.
Anne was a young girl with big dreams. She had so many hopes and things she thought would happen through out her life. The Nazis were on the move to make sure all Jews throughout Germany, Poland, Copenhagen, ect. we're gone. Anne was born June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt, Germany. When the Nazis invaded Germany, her family automatically moved to Amsterdam and brought only so little with them. As soon as she arrived Anne began her sixth Montessori school but, as soon as the Nazis invaded Amsterdam they had to transfer to a strictly only Jewish school and had to wear a yellow star on their chest at all times. Anne also had a good, loving family. They always had nice parties that Anne invited her friends to. Her father Otto Frank actually survived
Anne Frank is resilent in many different ways such as being hopeful,strong,and persistant through the tough times of the holocaust. During the holocaust she got a diary from her father Otto Frank for her thirteenth birthday which helped her to keep sane and it also allowed her to express herself in writting and not actions. She wrote how terrible the world was and how jews were forbidden from doing many things and how much pain and suffering the germans were causing towards the jews and non-jews. Thankfully from her recieving the diary we are able to know and learn through her eyes how horrendous this was for her and
Have you ever thought about having to go into hiding at such a young age? Anne Frank has been just 13 years old when she and her family went into hiding to avoid being sent to a camp by the Nazis. During the two years she spent living in an attic in the Secret Annex, she kept a diary, in which she called "Kitty". After the war, Anne's father, the only family member to survive the concentration camp the family was eventually sent to, chose to publish the diary that Anne had written through the years when her family was in hiding. She made the statement, "In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart." Anne felt this way even during the times that she has been through. I believe that Anne was hopeful, powerful, and strong willed.
Anne is maturing in regards of her relationship with her mother. Anne said that she used to be furious with mummy and sometimes still is. Anne thinks that mummy does not understand her.
I think it’s a good idea for Anne to write in her diary while she is hiding. Anne did very well with all the information she left in her diary. I like the parts in the story when Anne got in trouble. Anne thinks Margot gets treated a lot better when really she is just much calmer and listens in this story. Anne really keeps her diary updated.
While Anne Frank’s mind was still developing WWII happened to be occurring. Because she was so young her mind was still open and curious to events and ideas. As the Frank’s were brutally kicked out of their own home, she couldn’t help but ponder why people hated her and other Jews so intensely. When she gave her mother,
Anne was only 13 when the Nazi invaded her life. Around this age is where children begin to mature into adults. Anne’s friends and family for that reason are very important.
