FC: Anne Frank By Vicky, Afreen, Elisa, Kim, Tiffany
1: Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929, in Frankfurt, Germany. Her father, Otto, was the son of wealthy parents. He attended the classical gymnasium and served as a commissioned officer of the German army in World War I. Following the loss of his parent's fortune during the 1920s' inflation in Germany, he was able to establish himself as a businessman in Frankfurt specializing in banking and in the promotion of name brands. Anne's mother also came from a well-to-do family. Anne had a close and warm relationship with her father and a more distant one with her mother. Anne's sister Margot, a pretty and feminine girl, was born in 1926 and also died in Bergen-Belsen
2: The treatment of Jews... | Rise of Nazi Party...
3: When Hitler was in power, he managed to kill two thirds (approximately 6 million) of the Jewish population in the whole of Europe. | Adolf Hitler wanted to 'purify' Germany and he wanted the Aryan Race to be the only people in Germany. The Aryan Race is a race of people that are descendants of the orginal speakers of the Indo-European languages (eg. English, German, Italian, Spanish, and French). This race of people he wanted in Germany excluded all Jewish people, homosexuals, and Gypsies. Hitler mainly targeted Jewish people as there were 9.5 million living in Europe.
4: Her Diary...
5: On Anne Frank's 13th birthday she recieves a diary, she called it “Kitty”. Anne's eldest sister, Margot, recieves a notice for her deportation to a concentration camp. Her family decides to go into hiding, in a “secret annex”. Another Jewish family, the Van Daans, arrive with their son Peter. | Anne tells her Kitty (diary) that her Jewish friends are being taken away by the dozens. They are loaded into cattle trucks & sent to concentration camps. They take in another person – Mr Dussel, whom anne has to share her room with, she thinks he is very stubborn.
6: Anne feels guilty of being safe in hiding while her Jewish friends are probably suffering. Anne cannot sleep because of the air raids. They are eating terribly-dry bread and ersatz coffee for breakfast, spinach and rotten potatoes for dinner. Still, Anne feels lucky that they have food and shelter, that they are able to laugh at each other, and that they have books and a radio. | Anne chronicles a day in the Secret Annexe, describing many of the activities and personalities of the people in the Annexe. Anne is so affected by the tension that at times she goes to bed crying. She longs for fresh air, and wishes that the darkness and cruelty of the war would subside so that they can find beauty and safety. She has a dream of one of her friends, and feels guilty. She hopes that she prays hard enough to save her friends and family.
7: She hears that they will be making a collection of diaries and letters after the war, and wants to publish her diary. She has faith that God will raise them out of suffering, and that one day, the world will learn from the Jews. She is often downcast, but never in Despair. She writes Daddy a letter about how he did not help her through her struggle to find herself, and he is so upset that she feels guilty and realizes that she was wrong. | They are horrified to hear about antisemitism in Holland. Sometimes they go hungry, but even at their worst, they still have hope and are able to find cheerful moments. On D-Day, the English land on the French coast. There is great discussion about the hope of liberation, and they have fresh courage and strength. Anne celebrates her fifteenth birthday. She wishes she could look at nature more often, and not through a dirty window.
8: Many cities have fallen to the Allies, and the mood is optimistic. She wonders how she has held onto her ideals in the face of all the cruelty of war. She still believes that people are really good at heart. She has a deeper, purer side that no one knows. She worries that people think she is superficial. With this, her diary ends, on August 4, 1944, the Secret Annex was raided and they were taken away to German and Dutch concentration camps. | Important part of Diary I think an important moment is when Anne Frank recieves her diary, on her 13th birthday. If she hadn't received the diary as a present then she wouldn't have been able to recount how life was like during world war II. If Anne Frank didn't have her diary she wouldn't have been as famous as she is now & she wouldn't be an important part of our history.
9: Ms Ryan This part is for Tiffany because I can't open her file.
10: She died...
11: 4th of August, 1944. The place they were hiding in was stormed and infiltrated by the German Security Police. The family, including van Pelses and Pfeffer, people who assisted them in hiding, were taken in to Gestapo Headquarters, where they were all interrogated and held in overnight. The day after, the Franks were sent to the detention center. Two days later, transported to Westerbork, a transit camp. In the end, they were sent to a concentration camp, where women were forced to serve as slaves. Anne Frank was stripped to be disinfected, head shaved and was tattooed with an identifying number on her arm. And so, Anne Frank died a few days after her sister, Margot died from falling off her bed bunk in a weak state
