This 330-page book describes the life of Anne Frank during her hiding. The setting of the book was during world war one.
Anne stays true to her morals and thinks that even if you suffer from not physically being a part of the outside world, you can still connect and find peace in nature and with those around you. Both The Diary of Anne Frank and “Shema” highlight hardship in unique ways. In The Diary of Anne Frank, Anne tells Peter, “We’re not the only people that’ve had to suffer. There’ve

Anne Frank True, genuine courage is rare, especially in children. Many feign to have this aspect, but in reality only a select few exceed courage. From 1933 to 1945, Jews lived in fear, not one was safe. In the horrible time of the Holocaust, Jewish people of all ages and conditions were harassed and even executed.The courageous Frank family, consisting of a father, mother, and two young daughters, were tortured during this time period. One particular family member, the youngest daughter, has a legacy that still lives on today.
It also represents Anne’s positivity on a larger scale, as she says that the Annex is not a very ideal place to live, but a very ideal place to hide. In the article titled, Anne Frank, Anne is described as, “Anne is lively, a joker, and has lots of friends before she goes into hiding”(Anne Frank House). This shows how Anne has always had a positive attitude and is very sociable with others, these skills are put to good use during her time in the Annex because she had others to work with and be around. These positive traits of Anne might be bad for being in hiding as she is said to be a joker which might not go over well with the others. In Anne Frank Remembered:The Story of the Woman Who Helped to Hide the Frank Family, The author states that, “Order was slowly being made in the hiding place.
I read the book, Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl written by Anne Frank, who was a young teenage girl who journals her days in hiding during the holocaust. “The first thing I put in was this dairy, then hair curlers, handkerchiefs, schoolbooks, a comb, old letters; I put in the craziest things with the idea that we were going into hiding. But i’m not sorry, memories mean more to me than dresses.”(Anne Frank, 12) Anne was a very outgoing person who put down all of her thoughts on paper; well for the past couple years while she was in hiding at least. Anne’s diary meant a lot to her, she was very protective and skittish of other people reading it. Growing up in this time there was a lot more required of her.
Moreover, as the diary shows Anne’s inspiring personality, it also shows the opposite of it from the people surrounding them during wartime. The whole book only shows the greatness a person can have, but also the greediness a person can do to people who doesn’t deserve to be treated that way back then. It was during Anne Frank’s thirteenth birthday when her parents gave her a notebook to be her own diary. Being excited by the present, she only writes everything about her thoughts and secrets which is mostly about school, boys, or grades at first. Suddenly, this
