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 1940s were a crucial time all over the world with hardships and wars going on for years. Within these wars, two little girls that have been apart of it their whole lives, have shared their experiences through a diary and a book of stories. The Diary of Anne Frank is about a young jewish girl named Anne Frank, who has to go into hiding with her family in order to not get caught and taken away by the Nazis in Amsterdam, and while in hiding, records her experiences and thoughts into her diary. Farewell to Manzanar is a book based on a girl named Jeanne Wakatsuki who is seven years old at the time, and gets taken away with her family to Manzanar encampments, as the U.S. government doesn’t want to risk any Japanese Americans possibly giving up information to the Japanese as they are at war with them. Anne Frank and Jeanne Wakatsuki have many similarities and differences throughout their lifetimes on the run from the war.
This is her much acclaimed work in which she wrote about her life along with a biography of a co- survivor (German poet Oskar Pastior) to her mother in the Nazi concentration camp. She has portrayed many characters in her novel who are though fictitious but show a true story of pain and suffering. Her imagery is startlingly distinct and nightmarish. This work reflects the turmoil of war and displacement. Her father was a volunteer in the Waffen SS during World War ll and her mother was deported to USSR for forced labor camp for 5 years.
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. The employees of Otto’s office helped supplied the Franks with food, and information of the outside world.

On June 12th, 1942, Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank received a diary from her parents. Little did they know that the diary would later become one of the most critical pieces of information in World War II. In the beginning of her diary, it was just like any other teenage girl’s diary. She led a normal life, worrying about what she’d wear tomorrow or what her friends are doing. Until her older sister, Margot was ordered to a concentration camp.
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. The Jewish families were forced into hiding or else they would be taken away to concentration camps or killed. One of the families in 1945, being persecuted were the Franks. Anne Frank was 13 when they moved into the hidden annex above Mr. Kralers office building.
EXPERIENTIAL ESSAY When I saw that Anne Frank was a choice to write an essay on, I was very excited because I have always been fascinated with her story. Anne Frank was extraordinary in her optimism and hunger for knowledge, but she also experienced one of the most vicious acts of inhumanity in our history. Anne Frank was born Annelies Marie Frank on, June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany. Her parents names were Otto and Edith, and a sister who was 3 years older named Margot. The Frank family was of Jewish descent.
There are many forms of art, and the best one to describe successfully a historical event is writing. Diary of a Young Girl is a diary which 13 year old Anne Frank kept for two years during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands in WWII. Today, her diary still remains extremely relevant to the historical background of Jewish people during the Holocaust; not only because of Anne 's experiences in hiding, but because of the honest and unvarnished way that she describes the universal struggle of simply being a young person. Any modern teenager, even 80 years after the start of the Holocaust, can identify with Anne and what makes her diary so special is the fact that she thought just like any modern teenager, so we can say it’s something that cannot be negatively affected by time. ”Everyone here is still very tense.
