This week I listened to the Diary of Anne Frank. I was reading it but it was taking me a long time so my Mom found an audio book for me on you tube.
I learned that Anne Frank and I have a lot in common.
Me and Anne Frank, when she wrote her diary, both can’t stand our moms but we love our dads. Also, we both had an older sister. In her diary Anne Frank talked about having “two sides” and I feel the same way. We are similar because people don’t know our second side (which I will write about another time).
I learned that Anne Frank lived in a secret room called an annex.
Anne Frank’s annex wasn’t really an annex but a secret room inside a building that had multiple floors but the could only access 2 floors. They were hiding in the annex because Anne lived in a time where the Nazi’s were murdering people for being Jewish. Anne Frank was Jewish.
I learned that Anne Frank and her family hid for 2 years.
Anne Frank’s family hid inside their annex for two years but unfortunately they were discovered by the Nazis. Anne and her family were sent to the concentration camp. Her father, named Pim, went to great lengths to publish Anne’s diary. Anne could not publish her own diary because she died of disease while in the concentration camp that was rescued by British troops a few weeks after she died at approximately age 15.
