Allies to the Rescue
In the book The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, there is an emotional and inspiring story about eight Jewish people hiding in a Secret Annex in Amsterdam, Holland, making an effort to survive in the harsh time period of the Holocaust. The time period and setting of this book is World War II and during the Holocaust. It is in 1942 through 1944, and in Amsterdam, Holland. The street name of this Secret Annex in the attic of the old office building of Otto Frank is Prinsengracht 263-267, 1016 GV. This influential play has the story about eight Jews going into hiding in the dreaded time of the Holocaust, and giving it all their will and strength to survive and get through the 1940s. The main characters of this book are Anne Frank and her family, the Van Pel Family, Fritz Pfeffer, Miep Gies, and Mr. Kraler. D-Day is an important event for these Jewish fellows, and it gave a lot of meaning to them. These Jews went through a lot of stress and mixed emotions. Anne says, “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart” (Goodrich and Hackett 122). This quote shows the way that Anne can extract all of the bad in people and just see the good in people, even when they might be very notorious. D-Day gave these innocent Jewish members of the Annex a sense of hope and faith in these Allies to fight through German defenses to come rescue and save the Jews.

...away with the negatives. Anne said, “We’re not the only people that’ve had to suffer. There’ve always been people that’ve have to…sometimes one race…sometimes another…and yet…” (Goodrich and Hackett 117). The reader is amused with the way that Anne keeps her composure and a positive outlook throughout one of the most horrendous times in this world’s history. Anne contained the endurance and willpower to kept striving to freedom. Anne Frank withheld a special characteristic that no one could take away from her, and that is why Anne Frank is who she is now. Anne set a standard to young women to show that they can be courageous and strong like her, and to have a bright spirit even when you are at your lowest. Anne set the example to show that whether you are a girl or boy, old or young, you can be brave, and you can push through tough times with a little help of hope.
