Anne Frank was a Jewish girl who lived in
Amsterdam during the time of the Holocaust. Her
life is pretty normal. Her father is a successful
buisness man, she has good grades, has a caring
family, and is kinda popular. The problem is is
that she does not have a real friend. Besides her
cat, that she loves to death. Of course she has
the girls that she hangs out with, but they don’t
confide in eachother.
Therefor, she doesn’t
consider them her real friends. Then on her 13th
birthday she recieves a diary in which she puts
her thoughts into or confides in. She now calls
this her friend. She even gives it a name. It is
Then she meats this 16 year old boy who calls
himself Hello. They start to become close and tell
When all of a sudden her older
sister Margot recieves a call-up by the German
officers. Her family does not want her sent to a
concentration camp, so they are forced into
hiding. They run to her fathers office with the
help of Miep and some other people that work for
her father. The office is a three storie building,
but the bottom floor is the only floor that is
really used. Leaving the other 2 floors
supposively for storrage. The Franks take the 2nd
floor and they’re friends, the van Daan’s, have
the 3rd floor.
The van Daan’s consist of Mr. van
Daan, Mrs. van Daan, and Peter; their 16 year old
son. Both families hardly get along with eachother
and find eachother in quarrels quite often. Mrs.
van Daan and Mrs. Frank do not get along.
Mrs. van Daan do not get along. Also Anne and
Margot are not the best of friends at times. And
Peter is a whinner so he does not get along with
hardly anyone. Anne feels that her father is the
only one that understands her at all, and this
really upsets her mother. So the neighbors do not
notice that they are there, they have to have dark
cloth over the windows at all times, and can not
even look outside.
They can not have lights on at
sertain times of the day, and most of all, they
can not make noises exspeacilally at night. To
pass the time by they read a lot of books. They
can foods. They listen to the radio at night in
Mr. Franks old office. Anne writes in her diary.
The men make carpendry works out of the wood in
Also they can take naps, which is what
Peter does While they still have many
distractions, every little noise that they hear
worries them that somebody is coming. Therefor it
is very stressful. Bibliography:.
