Anne Frank

Anne Frank was a 13 year old Jewish girl during World War two born on June 12 1929 in Frankfurt  Germany where her father’s family lived for generations. She went into hiding to escape the Nazis with her mother Edith, father Otto, and sister Margot. Later Peter,Herman and Auguste Van Pels.

Then Hitler rose to power. And I am going to tell you how he did that.

He tried to overthrow the government of Bavaria. He was unsuccessful so he received a prison sentence. While in jail, he wrote a book on how the Jews were terrible people and greedy. He sold lots of copies and people started to believe him and  people started to follow Hitler and he rose to power. That's when the war begins.

Jews are allowed in fewer and fewer places and are soon not allowed to ride bikes,dance and are banned to a Jew only school. After they are not allowed to go to school at all. That’s when Margot gets a letter ordering her to report to work at a concentration camp in Germany. Concentration camps is where the Nazis send all the Jews they can to work in hopes that they can wipe them out. That night is when they went into hiding.

Hello Isobel, 

The story and legacy left behind by Anne Frank is extraordinarily powerful and I am stoked that your interest in her story has been peaked. Though her story is tragic her maturity and incredible resilience is evidenced in her novel entitled (in english) "The Diary of a Young Girl" which she wrote while in hiding. She shows the gradual dehumanization of the jews through the eyes of a child which allows for an interesting perspective on the holocaust! 

Cool topic! I can't wait to see what you find out!!

Hey Isobel,

I find Anne Frank's story truly fascinating. Being able to read about a girl who lived in that time and "experience" what she had to go through as a Jew is so captivating so I'm excited to find out what you will share with us!  Now, this was such an important event in history that I wonder how it impacts us today. Aside from researching about Hitler's time in power and the history of world war II, it would be great if you could also tie it with today. For example, how are Jews viewed/treated today because of that event?

If you would like to look more into my suggestion, here's a link:

Otherwise, amazing job and I can't wait to read your next post!

Hi Juliana!

Her story is truly fascinating!

I have actually planned to research how Jews are being treated today but I wanted to do a post on Anne Frank first because the people that don't know her story too well could read this then later when I post how Jews are being treated today, hopefully they will understand better and know what I am talking about.

Thank you for the link, It will definitely come in handy!

Thanks for the feedback,

          Isobel
