12 Page 436, cont.8. What do you think this play reveals about our need for freedom? about the power of love? about courage and hope? about good and evil? In your answers, consider how the play’s themes relate to the themes of another work, such as Ann Petry’s story about Harriet Tubman (page 143).9. Before The Diary of Anne Frank was first performed, Otto Frank wrote in a letter to the actor who would portray him, “Please don’t play me as a ‘hero.’… Nothing happened to me that did not happen to thousands upon thousands of other people.” Do you see anyone in the play as a hero? In your answer, cite the qualities or actions that you think make someone a hero.10. The play’s version of events differs in many ways from what actually happened. For example:In real life, Anne was given the diary as a present for her thirteenth birthday, several weeks before her family went into hiding.The Frank family moved into the Secret Annex a week before the Van Daan family did.Margot was sixteen, not eighteen, when the Franks went into hiding.The occupants of the Secret Annex often went down to the lower floors of the office building after working hours.There is no evidence in Anne’s diary that Mr. Van Daan stole food.11. Why might the writers have chosen to change or invent these details? Do you think it’s acceptable for writers to change details in works based on real people and real events? Discuss your responses.
