At the end of World War I, the Germans were angry and bitter that they lost the war. One of them was a Austrian corporal, the infamous Adolf Hitler, who rose to power and became the Chancellor of Germany, Führer (leader) of Germany, and also a leader of the Nazis party. Hitler, along with the other Nazis members, started the Holocaust, a genocide during WWII where millions of people were imprisoned and killed, especially Jews. He was also involved in WWII, being one of the three leaders of the Axis Powers. We feel that the Holocaust is a horrifying event in human history because so many people died. The Holocaust is important because it allows us to see how terrifying it was and to make sure that something similar to it will not happen again. It is also important because we want to remember all the victims of it.
The Diary of Anne Frank takes place Amsterdam, Netherlands. In the book Anne and her family are Jews in World War II. Because of the oppression of the Jews, Anne and her family are forced to go into hiding. Anne, her mom Edith, her dad Otto, her sister Margot, Mr. and Mrs. Van Daan, Peter Van Daan, and Mr. Dussel. In the beginning of the story, Anne is very emotional because she had to leave her friends and old life behind. Our class witnessed two different versions of the story, a play and a movie, but even though these are based off of the same book, they have several differences and similarities.
In this book report I will talk about the story “The diary of Anne Frank” the story is about a Jew girl called Anne who lived with her family in Germany in the second world war when a new German president called Adolf Hitler came with the idea that all Jew people were dangerous ; so her dad Otto Frank who worked in a bank came with the idea of moving to Amsterdam, Holland to be safer from the German army called the Nazis.
The Holocaust was a tragic event that killed and scarred millions. It is of the common misconception that only Jews were scarred by The Holocaust, however, the reality is that anyone that did not fit the expectation of Hitler perceived to be of a correct breed was killed, exiled, or imprisoned. Although this was a tragic and turning point of history, many claim it should not be taught in schools. The Holocaust is a great lesson for the entire world to learn from, and particularly a lesson for the next generation to learn from the mistakes of the past and make sure that they are never repeated again (Why teach The Holocaust?). The Holocaust should be taught to students in schools because it presents decisions that, in the future, may need to be made or even ones that should not have been made, it allows students to see how history could repeat itself, and it instills a sense of appreciation for the freedoms and inclusiveness that we have in our time.

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
Anne Frank was a very energetic young girl who tended to annoy the people around her with her thoughts, and never thinks about the things she says before she speaks out. During this time, Adolf Hitler has come into power, taking jewish people and their families away from their homes, killing, starving or working them to death, that has also come to be known as the Holocaust. Due to this and Anne’s family being jewish, they take action and go into hiding in an annex above an office with one other family named the Van Daans. The main events that happen, affect
The purpose of this book is to discuss how important of humans in the art worlds. Howard Becker describes that arts worlds are constituted by some people instead of individual and these people bring out the rules of the art worlds due to culture or resources.
At first, the holocaust progressed slowly, but soon caused the Franks and a few others to go into hiding. Though it may seem that they would be much safer in the annex, there life had completely changed. Everything and anything could go wrong and get them caught. Anne’s mood changes when she realises this. This happens with “Anne. [Pulling out a pasteboard-bound book] A diary! [She throws her arms around her father.] I’ve never had a diary. And I’ve always longed for one. [She looks around the room.] Pencil, pencil, pencil, pencil. [She starts down the stairs] I’m going down to the office to get a pencil. Mr. Frank. Anne! No! [He goes after her, catching her by the arm and pulling her back.] Anne. [Startled] But there’s no one in the building now. Mr. Frank. It doesn’t matter. I don’t want you ever to go beyond that door.”(Hackett, 112) This quote shows how Anne goes from excited about getting a journal, to scared because her dad explains all the limitations of their stay in the annex. Anne’s mood changes may times
In our history there are some excellent leaders, but there are also terrible monsters. During World War 2 there was a monster who was always thinking about arithmetic. ¨The arithmetic, the numbers. You add, you subtract, and there are no more Jews.¨ And there was one person who captivated us with her words, Jane Yolen. Which was later made into a movie, directed by Donna Deitch.

As Winston Churchill said,” Success is not final. Failure is not fatal”. It is the perseverance and hope to continue that counts. This is the story of a boy named Junior whose key is his hope. The Absolutely True Diary is the life story of a Arnold Spirit (Junior) and his efforts to break the stereotypes about Indians. He wants to become something amazing; he wants to be successful. Juniors experiences throughout the book changes him as a person and he understands that life has its ups and downs but if people have hope, they can do anything. In The Absolutely True Diary, Sherman Alexie uses literary devices, Mr.P’s advice, and Juniors experiences to illustrate the theme that perseverance and hope can lead to great things.
As the final bell rings everyone scatters out of their classrooms and runs to where they are picked up at the end of the day. For me that spot was the bus stop. When I come to the loop I find myself a shady spot and take a seat with my back resting on a metal beam. I take a look at my phone, like everyone in society these days, and wait for my bus to arrive. Soon my friends come to join me and we laughed and joked about how the day went and which teacher gave the most homework or what couple ended it and made a big scene in the hallway. My parents never told me to gossip but it was always fun to talk about the news around school. When the bus finally picks me up and drops me off, I still have a long walk back to my house in the heat of the
Throughout World War II Anne Frank was kept hidden away in a 500 square foot building they came to call the Secret Annexe. Anne Frank, her family, and the Van Daans endured difficult times of hunger, thirst, and lack of privacy cornered by walls for over two years. Anne confided her observations and feelings of the hard times within her diary she named Kitty. By writing in her diary both before and after the war, one could visibly notice how Anne went into the Annexe as a juvenile and came out as a young adult. The grueling experience she was forced to undergo changed Anne’s personality from a energetic and silly schoolgirl to an insightful and sophisticated adolescent.
Love. A singular feeling I have when I look at him. My Mr. Hooper, I am ecstatic that I get to marry the love of my life, MY Reverend. When I am with him, I feel as if I am on top of a cloud floating above reality. It is a feeling unlike any other. It has the perks of being happy, that feeling in your gut from guilt, and it settles your brain like peace does. Two weeks too this day I will officially be married to my best friend and will become Mrs. Hooper.
Maus and Fun Home both use the medium of comics to tell very personal and delicate stories. Art Spiegelman uses Maus to tell the moving and emotional story of his father’s survival of the Holocaust; Alison Bechdel uses Fun Home to tell the story of her father’s death and the exploration of her identity. Although both texts are different in many ways, the both use the comic medium to portray an outsider experience. While Spiegelman uses the medium to construct an animal hierarchy and Bechdel uses the medium to combine multiple moments in her life into one story, both authors use pictorial detail to shed light on the outsider experience they are each trying to portray.
