Inside the life of Anne Frank “There's only one rule you need to remember: laugh at everything and forget everybody else! It sound egotistical, but it's actually the only cure for those suffering from self-pity.” (Frank 321) Anne Frank was a young Jewish girl who went into hiding during World War II to avoid being captured by the Nazis. She and seven other people had to hide in a secret annex Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam. Anne received a diary on her 13th birthday and wrote about all the little things that had happened to her throughout the day. Three weeks before they were found Anne wrote in her diary: “Day and night during every waking hour, I do nothing but ask myself have you given him enough chance to be alone?
Three weeks before they were found Anne wrote in her diary: “Day and night during every waking hour, I do nothing but ask myself have you given him enough chance to be alone? Have you been spending too much time upstairs? Do you talk about serious subjects he’s not yet ready to talk about...?” (Frank 212) They were discovered after two years of hiding and were deported to concentration camps. Her father is the only one of the eight people to survive in the concentration camps. She is an inspiration to many people around the world to have gone through all that at such a young age.
They were discovered in 1944 and arrested. Anne was sent to a concentration camp, where she died the following year. Her famous diary of the two years she spent in hiding was later found in the room where she and her family had lived. Anne’s father, Otto, had taken the family to Amsterdam, where he had established a small food products business. When Germany invaded The Netherlands in 1940, the Franks once again became subject to escalating anti-Semitic persecution.
It was then that Otto Frank saw the sign he needed to take the family into hiding. They were in a secret annexe above the Opekta-Works in Amsterdam. Altogether with the Van Daan family and Mr Dussel the dentist there was eleven people. Through the two years they were in hiding, millions of Jews were being taken to concentration camps to be killed. Anne lived in constant fear.
Her determination showed the world how much of a hero she has become. Anne Frank has been hiding from the Nazis for about 25 moths during the Holocaust trying to stay alive. "Anne Frank's voice becomes the voice of six million vanished Jewish souls" (Diary). This shows how Anne is an important girl to the world and proves that she should be respected as one of the deaths due to the Nazis. Her voice will always be known as the girl from the Salemian 2 Holocaust that tried her best to stay alive and wanted to live a... ... middle of paper ... ... million Jewish souls that have died through the Holocaust.
She lived in this hole with no light, no fresh air, and barely ever moved for almost seven years. She finally escaped and made it to the North where she and her children lived much happier and most of all they lived free. Linda Brent said, "Slavery is terrible for men, but is far more terrible for women." She makes a good and true point, for when her life and the life of other slave women is compared to men’s, mentally, slavery takes a much larger toll on the suffering of women. Women are responsible for their children, because the children follow the mother and mothers often fill guilty for bringing children into the cruel world of slavery.
When they died they just got thrown into a large pile of thousands of dead bodies. Not knowing of what happened to his family, Otto traveled back the Netherlands, in hope to see that they have made it back, but he didn’t. Anne lived in fear everyday of being found by the German police. After doing the impossible and surviving the death camps, she told her story to the world when Otto published her journal that she had been writing about her life experiences that she was put through. Anne Frank was a very strong young girl that never let her fear overcome her will to survive.
Otto Frank died on August 19, 1980. Until that time, he devoted his life to sharing his daughter's diary with the world. Anne Frank and her family's only crime was that they were born Jewish. Anne and millions of other Jews were killed by the Nazis by the cruelest human degradation. Anne and many others endured the most ruthless treatment.
The Frank family went into hiding expecting to be away for a short period of time. No one could predict how long the war would last. All events in Anne Frank’s childhood led up to the famous story of the young Jewish girl living in the secret annex, who wrote a diary of the tragic times and events around her. The story and diary of Anne Frank will live on for generations to come, and continue to inspire all. Works Cited Hermann, Spring.
