The book that I picked for my project was “All But My Life” and was written by Gerda Weissmann Klein during World War II. The book “All But My Life” is a book about a young girl who had to go through the hardships of life of a Jew during the Holocaust. That young girl’s name was Gerda Weissmann, and before the war she had a mother, a father, and a brother but after the war, they were all gone. Throughout the war she made friends and kept on holding on to hope and, life itself. Those friends she made eventually she lost them, but she never lost the hope she had.
“In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” This is a quote Miep Gies found in Anne’s diary. For people who haven’t been informed about Anne frank, she was born on [June 12, 1929]. She died at the age of 15 at a concentration camp. She was born in Frankfurt, Germany and moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands when she was four! When the Nazis gained control of Germany Anne lost her citizenship.
One particular family member, the youngest daughter, has a legacy that still lives on today. Anne Frank was both a hero and a victim of the Holocaust because she was forced into hiding, her loved ones were killed, and her diaries positively impacted many. During this dreadful time, Anne Frank was victimized by being forced into hiding. The Franks originally lived peacefully in Germany, but as the Nazis gained power, they slowly moved to Amsterdam. The father, Otto, previously knew the city, and brought his family with him once he found a place to live (Kniesmeyer 519).
Miep Gies: The Secret Annex Survivor The Frank family is a family known for their period of hiding during the Holocaust: A mass extermination of jews run by Adolf Hitler. During that time of hiding, a woman named Miep Gies brought them supplies and other information about what was going on outside of the hiding place. Anne wrote a lot about her in her diary which was later published after the war ended and because of her support during that time, Miep Gies is remembered as one of the most important women in history. However, it is questioned whether or not Miep Gies’s portrayal is identified correctly by the authors Richard Goldstein from the New York Times, Elie Wiesel from Time Magazine, and Harry Smith from CBS News. These three authors portrayal of Miep Gies is fair and accurate because they use Gies’s words and correctly portray her feelings and experiences with Anne Frank and her family.

“We live in a world where we rarely speak out and when someone does, often nobody is there to listen,” is a quote by Jaycee Dugard in her memoir A Stolen Life. Authors must be able to appeal to their readers in order for the story to be heard. While writing, they consider using multiple different tones and stylistic choices to entice an audience. In A Stolen Life, Jaycee Dugard utilizes a concerned tone and matter-of-fact style in order to express her emotions, provide readers with ample knowledge of her situation, and reflect on her life experiences. Jaycee Dugard never expected her childhood to be taken away.
