The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank In 1942, when the Nazi s began to invade their country, the Frank family went into hiding in an attic of a warehouse. The Franks daughter, Anne, kept a diary through out their horrible ordeal. Minutes before the Frank s were captured in their hiding place after a two-year stay, Anne wrote in her diary the words, In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. Even though Anne suffered so much her courage and character only grew stronger. Before Anne Frank went into hiding, she led a blissful and joyous life. She was always surrounded by friends and her family was well to do.
She was torn away from her happiness and placed into the harsh and cruel reality of the Nazi agenda at only thirteen years of age. All this only because she was Jewish. She stayed locked up in the attic of the warehouse for almost twenty-five months, never being able to step outside. Such repression and life of fear would make almost any teenager completely depressed and more miserable that words could express.
However, Anne managed to keep hope for a better tomorrow and her respect for the human race. Anne made a very powerful statement in her last words. To truly believe such a thing after being abused by the Nazis is quite remarkable indeed. I am very sure that most people, including myself, would have thought that the world was a completely corrupt and humans are naturally cruel if they d have gone through such times. I believe that Anne has the ability to say such a thing because of her great unselfishness and love for all of G-d s creatures.
I also believe that if Anne could have written in her diary after she had gone to the concentration camp, she would have said the exact same thing. Because of her cheerfulness and undying courage, Anne was able to keep up the spirits and the hopes of her family. Her never ending love for all people was fueled by the fact that she would never let anyone s cruelty and power bring her spirits to the ground. Through all her suffering Anne s character only became stronger and more determined.
