A while after The Van pels moved into the Secret Annex, a friend of a helping staff member moved in as well. He was an elderly dentist in which Anne had to share a room with. Well into their hiding, Otto had ordered Anne and Margot some school books to continue their work even though they were in hiding. As well as school books, the Secret Annex was filled with books and a radio to keep their daily routine less bland. Anne wrote in her diary for a majority of every day.
Review: The book is about the experiences and thoughts of a young female named Anne Frank who lived through the horrors of the Second World War. It was due to the Nazi occupation in Holland that the Frank family went into hiding in Amsterdam in the so-called “Het Achteruis”. Being confined inside a single apartment with another family until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, she jots her thoughts on her diary she had named “Kitty” as seen on her entry on the 20th of June in 1942 on nearly a daily-basis. Although there was war, this did not stop Anne Frank from having normal thoughts of a child going through puberty, experiencing young love, feeling that she had no real close friends, and the like; she discussed her thoughts on these matters as if everything was just normal. Moreover, it is seen in the latter entries how Frank matures, her thoughts shifts from the perspective of a young girl to the perspective a young-adolescent as she gains more profound thoughts about humanity as it is seen on some entries how she finds it difficult to comprehend why the Jews were being persecuted or how she confronts her own identity.
The Holocaust took place from January 30, 1933 – May 8, 1945. This event changed American history forever. Thousands of people died, including the Frank family. Anne Frank once said, “In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart.” Anne and her family had to go through a lot of tough times during the holocaust, but I agree with Anne, people are still good at heart. Reading this book, I noticed that there are a lot of kind hearted actions in this book.
