Religion In The Holocaust

142 Words1 Page
However, religion plays a crucial part in Anne’s life, but Peter thinks lightly of it. Even if they are Jewish, Peter views it as a way for people to criticize and make fun of him. Page 342 states, “ Peter: You can’t throw… ? Something they branded you with… ? That they made you wear so they can spit on you? Anne: I know. I know. But afterall it is the star of David isn’t it?” Anne has a positive outlook towards her religion, but Peter thinks of it negatively. Due to this, when the Nazis finally find them in the annex, Peter panics and starts thinking of only the negative. On the other hand, Anne remains calm and sedated because she has something to rely on in hard times. This shows how big of an impact religion plays during the Holocaust.
