Anne Frank review
On the Deportations
"Our many Jewish friends and acquaintances are being taken away in
droves. The Gestapo is treatiang them very roughly and transporting them
in cattle cars to Westerbork, the big camp in Drenthe to which they're
sending all the Jews....If it's that bad in Holland, what must it be
like in those faraway and uncivilized places where the Germans are
sending them? We assume that most of them are being murdered. The
English radio says they're being gassed."--October 9, 1942
On Her Old Country, Germany
"Fine specimens of humanity, those Germanns, and to think I'm actually
one of them! No, that's not true, Hitler took away our nationality long
ago. And besides, there are no greater enemies on earth than the Germans
and Jews."--October 9, 1942
On Nazi Punishment of Resisters
"Have you ever heard the term 'hostages'? That's the latest punishment
for saboteurs. It's the most horrible thing you can imagine. Leading
citizens--innocent people—are taken prisoner to await their execution.
If the Gestapo can't find the saboteur, they simply grab five hostages
and line them up against the wall. You read the announcements of their
death in the paper, where they're referred to as 'fatal
accidents.'"--October 9, 1942
"All college students are being asked to sign an official statement to
the effect that they 'sympathize with the Germans and approve of the New
Order." Eighty percent have decided to obay the dictates of their
conscience, but the penalty will be severe. Any student refusing to sign
will be sent to a German labor camp."--May 18, 1943
Here is were the story begins ...
On June 12, 1942, Anne Frank's parents gave her a small red-and-white
plaid diary for her thirteenth birthday. Anne recorded her innermost
feelings in her diary, which she named "Kitty."
Less than a month after receiving her diary, on July 6, 1942, Anne and
her family were forced to go into hiding. Though they could bring very
few things with them to the hiding place, Anne brought her diary. During
the months Anne lived in hiding, her diary became her best friend and
In hiding, Anne continued to write in her diary nearly every day. She
wrote about her life with the seven other people in hiding--her parents,
her sister, the van Pels family (called the van Daan family by Anne),
and Fritz Pfeffer (called Alfred Dussel by Anne), as well as the war
going on around her, and her hopes for the future.
When she filled up her original diary, Miep Gies and Bep Voskuijl, two
of the family's helpers,brought her ledgers and loose sheets of paper to
continue writing. She kept these in a briefcase that belonged to her
In 1944, the Dutch government, which had been in exile in London for
most of the occupation,broadcast a request over the radio for people to
save their wartime diaries. Anne Frank then began to rewrite her diary
with the intention of having it published after the war.
On August 4,1944, the Nazis raided the Secret Annex and arrested the
residents. They emptied Otto Frank's briefcase onto the floor, including
Anne's diary, in order to carry the family's valuables.
After the residents were taken away, Miep and Bep went to the Annex, and
attempted to salvage all that they could. They found Anne's papers, as
well as other personal belongings of the residents, which they took away
for safe-keeping. Miep put Anne's diary in her desk drawer, to await
Anne Frank did not survive the Holocaust. Her father, Otto Frank,
returned to Amsterdam after the war ended, the sole survivor among those
who had hid in the Secret Annex. When he found out that Anne had died in
Bergen-Belsen, Miep Gies gave him Anne's diary, which she had hidden for
almost a year.
