2 Hello, I would like to introduce you to Anne Frank, she is 13. Anne was German & Jewish.Anne was fun, wild, loud, smart, and very friendly!Anne Got her diary on 13th birthday in 1942, this was a present from her parents.Anne Frank lived her last few years of her life during the time period of something called the Holocaust.Her family hid in an Annex behind a office building for about two years.After those several months her family and her were found, and shipped off to concentration camps, where only a couple of them survived.Anne was not one of the survivors. Anne died of typhus in the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen in late February or early March of 1945.Anne wrote in her diary for about two years while they were in hiding because she felt that she had no one to fully trust with her secrets.
3 Family.This is Anne’s Family, this photo was taken before they had gone into hiding.From left to right:Margot Frank, Otto Frank, Anne Frank, and Edith Frank
4 Family.Anne had 3 other family members. Her mother, her father, and her older sister.Anne's older sister, was pretty, smart, emotional, and everyone’s favorite. Anne and her older sister did not form a very close bond with each other throughout the years. Margot Frank, died of typhus in the concentration camp a few days before Anne did.Anne's father, Otto Frank, was practical and kind. Anne was very close in relationship with her father. Anne’s father was the only one in the frank family that survived.Anne’s mother, Edith Frank, Anne and her mother felt little closeness or sympathy for each other, and the two have a very disorderly relationship. Anne’s mother died in Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp from hunger and exhaustion.
5 AccomplishmentsI think one big accomplishment of Anne was her personality and the fact that she was extremely brave and optimistic though everything she went through only being 13.Anne and her family were Jewish so in 1942 they had to hide out in an annex with another family to escape the Nazi’s. In 1943 they were found in the annex. Anne survived about a year in a concentration camp until she had died.Another big accomplishment of Anne would be her dairy. Miep Gies was the one to find and keep Anne’s diary while they were sent off to the concentration camps. When Anne’s father was returned after being sent to the camps, he had gotten the diary from Miep and published it for the world to read. It is now one of the most read books in the world.

7 Oooh, I like the way she said that.. “Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”-I liked this quote because it can relate to a lot of peoples attitudes these days. People can be so clueless of situations going on in the world. Most people just care about what's going on in their lives.“Despite everything, I believe people are really good at heart.”-I liked this quote that Anne said because through everything she has been through with the holocaust and the Nazi’s, she still thinks they are good people, even though they killed millions and millions of people.“Who would ever think that so much went on in the soul of a young girl?”-I like this quote because a lot of teenage girls can relate to this. Even I can, a lot people don’t know everything about everyone. They could be the loudest, happiest, most outgoing person at school. But at home they could be sad and lonely. Not even parents know everything going on in their child's life.
8 Life Lessons.. “Ohana means family. Another lesson you could’ve learned from this book was not to judge a book by its cover. Hitler thought all Jews were bad so he sent them all off and killed them. How would you feel if someone came up to you and just said ”Oh I don’t like you because of your nationality.” It’s crazy to think that anyone would even do that, but it’s even crazier that all the bystanders didn’t do anything about it, they just followed Hitler's lead. So before you judge someone because of their looks or nationality get to know them first.One other thing I learned from the Diary of Anne Frank was to not be so selfish. Anne back then couldn’t be selfish in the annex because she had to think of all the other people living there. Also all the Jews in the holocaust, they barely got anything to ever drink or eat, and they didn’t get say in anything during that time. I should just be thankful that I have a house to live in, a family that cares, and food.One thing I learned while reading this book was enjoy your life. A lot of Jews didn’t get to do that back then because of the holocaust, millions and millions were killed, even kids and babies. Anne was only fifteen when she had died, when I compare that to my self I think wouldn’t want to die at this age, and neither did Anne. We all want to do something with our lives, so just enjoy life.“Ohana means family.And family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.-Lilo and Stich
9 Rest in Peace Reflections Annelies Marie Frank 1925-1945 The diary of Anne Frank has honestly changed my life in a positive way. Anne Frank’s diary has helped me understand that the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust had faces, lives, and personalities. They were just like us normal people, nothing was wrong with them, they were just humans. She helped me learn that the Holocaust did happen, and it was a horrible thing. Without her help, I would never know the intensity of the pain caused during this time. And with out this people would never fully understand what it was like during the holocaust.After reading this book I have learned to not judge people because it can hurt, both physically and emotionally. I’ve also learned to not be a bystander, like many people did during the holocaust, if a big group of people did come together they might have had a chance at winning, and stopping Hitler and his harsh actions towards Jews.Rest in PeaceAnnelies Marie FrankGone but never forgotten.
