Courage is a word to describe a brave person, and can also describe Anne Frank, perfectly. Today, in our generation, a large sum of people is living negative lives, but Anne Frank was not one of those people. At the time of the Holocaust, from 1933 to 1945, she was a Jewish teenager, and although she was sent to a concentration camp at the age of 15, she was exceedingly positive and always tried to find the best in everyone. Prior to the holocaust, Anne, her friends and family didn’t have to stay in a crunched, secluded annex to stay safe. Their lives were quite difficult, and they were required to be as silent as possible in their hiding spot during most hours of the day.
Because of this Anne’s family and four others were forced into hiding to escape the treacheries of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. About two years after the everyone went into hiding they were all captured and taken to concentration camps. Anne’s

In the book “Night” by Elie Wiesel shows an inside glimpse of how jews were treated in the holocaust. It shows what his daily life was in the concentration camp Auschwitz and how he had to fight for his life every day and how harsh the weather and the cruelty was. The book also shows how the human rights were broken.
