Anne Frank was born in Germany on June 12, 1929. She lived with her father Otto and mother Edith Frank. Anne's sister, Margo was three years older. Anne loved Margo very much. It was very happy and really good family. The sisters studied in good school and they had Catholic, Protestant and Jewish friend. But in March 1933, the National Socialist party was elected and after that we can see real descrimination! All jews had a spesial sign that they are jewish people. And other people couldn't talk with them at all. In the movie we saw when three girls went after school and talked to each other, mom of not jewish girl screamed on her doughter get out from jews!

When Adolf Hitler took control over them, were started big jewish pogroms. Before him their family had everything! They had a big nice house with good food. They even celebrated shabat every week. They were relly happy. But after Hitler came they have nothing. They lost their house, there traditions and family.

June, 1939 - Anne's family went to the beach, but her mother didn't give Anne play or sweem. Otto Frank, Anne's father, saw a beautifu couple, they were happy, and here we can see conflict: Otto likes his children much more than wife.

July 15, 1942 - Anne's mother got a letter that their family will be arrested or something like that and they have to hide somewhere very fast. Otto and Edith Frank knew that as long as the Nazis were in power, life for Jews in Germany would become more and more dangerous. And they decided to move to the Netherlands. In Amsterdam, Anne and her sister had a busy and happy life, they quickly learned Dutch, attended school, and made many new friends.

In May 1940 the Nazis got Holland and soon began to place limits on the economic and social freedom the citizens. In the movie we saw how Jews had to register with the authorities so the Germans knew the names and addresses of every Jew in Holland. Jewish children were forced to attend only Jewish schools. Everybody must had cards. Those issued to the Jews were stamped with a "J" and they were often stopped by the police and made to show the I.D. card. Another problem was that Jews were required to hand over their bicycles and barred from riding trolleys or using cars.
