I read Anne’s diary this year in English class. I find it hard to believe that Anne and her family lasted two years before they were caught. I know that if I had to live like that I would not be able to survive. Her story has impacted on many thousands of people who have experienced her story. During the time I read it I noticed that she went through a lot of hard times with her family, e.g. when she had a fight with her mum. Her life is hard to understand because it must have been hard not moving for about 12 hours of the day. In the future I would love to visit the annex where she lived for two years.

Over the few weeks that I have studied the play of the diary created by Anne I have become very attached to the story, It has taught me a lot about how the Jewish people hid from the "idealistic" world that the Nazi's wanted. This website has also taught me a lot about how the Nazi's slowly took all power from Jewish people and stripped them of their humanity. The topic is very emotional but worthwhile to learn as "Those who don't learn from history, are doomed to repeat it."

Even through everything that happened to Anne Frank, she was still an ordinary girl, but she was an ordinary girl growing up in extraordinary times. She loved life and laughter, was interested in history and movie stars, Greek mythology, cats, writing, and boys. In the few entries which she wrote before the family went into hiding, we discover something of the world of a child growing up in Holland in 1942. Anne went to school, had girl friends and boyfriends, went to parties and to ice-cream parlors, rode her bike, and chattered in class. Much of this chatty quality of hers, however, spills over onto the pages of her diary, where we often feel as if she is a good friend who is confiding in us. Although Anne Frank is an ordinary girl, she is still a hero to the world. Allowing us to know what happened to her and her family during the war, was a brave and courageous act by such a young girl. Anne Frank is truly a hero.

For the past term I have been studying a version of 'The Diary of Anne Frank' that had been adapted into a play. The play really interested me, and helped me to put a person and a story to the six million Jews killed in the holocaust. It has inspired me to want to read the actual diary, and to look for other stories. It shows how precious human life is, and how history must be remembered so it does not repeat.

The Play of The Diary of Anne Frank is a heart-warming and eye-opening book about the dangers and sadness involved in WWII. Being Anne’s age it was easy to connect with some of her thoughts involved in the process of growing up and adolescence. However, when it came to the war it was impossible to connect with her story and fully understand what she went through. Anne, in my opinion, was forced to grow up faster than any normal 13 year old. Anne was strong, brave and wouldn’t let anything or anyone break her spirit or bring her down. The story, although it didn’t end with a happy ending, was still a happy story in some ways. Anne was so talented and we should all be so grateful to have been able to explore her talents and witness what she witnessed through her strong and meaningful writing. Anne is an important historical figure and that is what she is known for. She is known for her writing and her experience throughout WWII but I feel like everyone is forgetting something. Anne was one of the 6 million Jews killed during the holocaust and she was one of the 1.5 million children killed but putting numbers and the war aside. Anne was a kid. A child who was punished for being human and a child who was discriminated against from a young age. Personally I don’t think I will ever forget the story of Anne Frank and I will definitely not forget Anne.

The first time picking up and reading your diary I really had no idea about what I was reading. I didn't know about Nazis or Holocausts or Propaganda. Your story is filled with memories, sadness, strength, hope and faith. I feel so sad when I think about how much you had to go through as a young girl. Isn't it sad when you get hurt so much that you finally say, "I'm used to it." I can't comprehend the number 6 million. The amount of pain and loneliness that not only you have faced but an entire country. Your memories and thoughts that you have recorded are held in this wonderful diary for the rest of eternity. You will continue to inspire and make us better people forever. Thankyou for your contribution to generations to come.
