The Holocaust is the mass murder of Jews under the German Nazi regime during the period 1941–45. More than 6 million European Jews, as well as members of other persecuted groups, such as gypsies and homosexuals, were murdered. Anne Frank was a young girl who had to live in a secret annex with her family starting July 6Th. The Van Pels family joins them a week later. The two families already know each other: Otto Frank and Hermann Van Pels are business partners.
Many things changed while they were in the annex. Throughout the years, the moods and relationships of the families in the annex were significantly changed by what happened in the outside world. 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.
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). Just to avoid confrontation, the Frank family moved from the place they called home their entire lives. Once they moved to Amsterdam, “Anne and Margot quickly adapted themselves to their new life. They learned Dutch and attended the local Montessori school” (Kniesmeyer 519).
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.
World War II was a horrible time in the world. Many Jewish people were murdered and killed for nothing more than being born Jewish. Lots of these people were children and one of these Jewish children was Anne Frank. Like many other Jewish people, she was forced into hiding by the Nazi Party and Hitler's regime. During Hitler's regime, Germany sent Jewish families and even children to places called concentration camps where they would be worked until their death.
During this time, Adolf Hitler was in power and Jews were being persecuted and killed. The Jewish people of Germany did the unthinkable; furthermore, they hid anywhere they possibly could. Anne Frank hid in an annex in her father’s office, other ran away to different countries, some even hid in the walls. Subsequently, the soldiers came to their hiding spots, and when they did, and the children cried, the parents took the blame so that their children could survive. So that their children could have better lives, they gave up theirs.
There was a group of people who were Jews and lived in the Secret Annex. Mr.Frank built the Annex and his family, he had two daughters named Anne and Margot. They had to live in this place because of a dictator named Hitler. They went into hiding on July 6, 1942.They are joined by four other people that are hiding because they were jews too. Mr.Frank is the one that lets all the people join his annex.
Anne left a legacy as the girl in hiding. The changing world affected Anne Frank.(spp) Before hiding the Franks were an upper middle class family living on the outskirts of Frankfurt. Anne had a sister named Margot, mother Edith Frank, and father Otto
Anne Frank was a young girl around the age of 13 when they first went into hiding. They were in hiding for two years, from the year 1942 until 1944. Then once they took her out of hiding, she went to the nazi’s concentration camps. She died at the age of 16 in Bergen-Belsen in Germany. In the play Anne Frank said,“In Spite of everything, I still believe people are good at heart”.
Anne Frank Compare and Contrast 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.
It was on her 13th birthday that she got a diary. 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.
More than three million Jews were killed in concentration camps during World War Two. The concentration camps were extremely brutal and people who experienced them were treated like animals. When Jewish people were thrown into concentration camps, not only had they been stripped of their basic rights, but they had been stripped of their lives as well. Everyday they would witness fellow jews dying or being killed. Anyone who ever lived in a concentration camp knew that they could have died any day.
Jews had to go into hiding, to hide from being put into a concentration camp. When a neighbor of Hans and Rosa’s was found out to have secretly been a jew, he was going to be put into a concentration camp, Hans stood up for him saying they had all known him for a long time, and he was alright. The Nazi asked for Hans’ name, and wrote it down. A few days later Hans got put into the war. In Night, all the Jews are put into concentration camps, and some are immediately killed in the crematories.
