When it comes to dealing with tough times such as going to internment camps or hiding from Nazi soldiers so that they aren’t taken to centration camps, there are three important questions that come into play; What motivates people to move through hard times and moments?, What can people do to help others going through tough problems?, and Who can people go to to help them through tough times or conflict? I think that people can best respond to conflict by staying strong through courageousness and always having people in their life to talk to.

In the year 1933, the persecution of Jews and their families due to the holocaust had begun. Hitler had come to power, and made Nazi Germany believe the Jews were the problem.

World War ll was one of the most dreadful times in worldwide history. Millions died during the Holocaust and just as many were imprisoned in internment camps.

In the beginning Anne’s diary talks about her life has a 13 year old teenager. It was on her 13th birthday that she got a diary. In her diary, she wrote about her friendships, crushes and her academic performance at school. Anne had an older sister named Margot, and they attended a Jewish school in Amsterdam. In this diary, the Franks moved to Netherlands from Germany because they feared prosecution. After the Germans invaded the Netherlands in 1940, the Franks, another family called the van Daans and Mr Russell hid in a small secret annex above Otto Frank’s, Anne’s father’s office.

Anne Frank and her family were in hiding for two years. During those two years, the family lived in an Annex with another family named the Van Daans. Also during these two years she wrote in her diary about her experiences of each day and what her wishes were. Her father Otto Frank and her mother Edith Frank including the Van Daans would try and take care of the family as best as they could. In hiding, they were not able to leave their home as they might get caught. A family friend named Miep was able to grab food for the family and deliver news to the family about updates on the war. Some days Anne would have an attitude towards the family because of her fear of going to the concentration camps but everyone would try and help the best they can to make everyone happy.

In the play, The Diary of Anne Frank, there are many themes that are presented in this story. I chose two themes that I thought stood out in this story. One of themes in is that you need to identify yourself. Anne explores her identity when she was living in the secret annex. The tension between the war and the personal identity Anne is trying to develop, drives her portrayal on herself. "You could not do this and you could not do that. They forced Father out of his business. We had to wear yellow stars. I had to turn in my bike. I couldn 't go to a Dutch school anymore. I couldn 't go to the movies, or ride in an automobile, or even in a streetcar, and a million other things” (Act I, Scene 1, pg. 8, Anne). Another one of the many themes in this story is to always have hope. The Holocaust was an extremely difficult time to live in, but through it all, the Franks never lost hope. It was hard to keep hope, but through constant encouragement from each other, they managed to stay hopeful, even through the hardest times. "For the past two years we have lived in fear. Now we can live in hope" (Act II, scene 4, p. 119, Mr. Frank). This quote shows how strong the Frank 's belief in
