Anne Frank was a young girl in the worst position anybody could ever imagine. How does somebody maintain their humanity in the worst circumstances possible? Anne Frank was an innocent girl who did not deserve to die but did. Anne Frank was a very kind person and cared about every person she met.
How does Anne Frank’s diary help her get through tough times? She could not go outside so she never knew what might be happening outside the secret place she lived in. Anne Frank and her family died in a concentration camp after they were betrayed by a person who helped them hide.
How does someone maintain their personality in the worst circumstances possible? A young girl who was forced to go hide from very bad people said “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good in heart”. She could never go out in public or go to a public school because WWII was going on and they could die any second of the day would find her if she did. Writing in her diary gave her purpose. There has only been one video taken of her and it is her watching a young couple get married. Some people think the diary is fake but, there has been no evidence supporting that. If Miep Gies had read the diary she said she would have burned it because it contained important information about the people who helped the Frank family hide. Between 8 to 9:30 am they couldn’t make a sound ,that was when the workers got there and after that they ate breakfast and continued their regular schedule of hiding and keeping themselves alive.
Otto and Edith Frank were Anne Frank’s parents. Edith had 3 siblings Julius, Walter, and Betti and Otto had 4 siblings Herbert, Erich, Helene, and Robert. Johannes Kleiman, Miep Gies, Victor Kugler, and Bep Voskuijl are the people who helped Anne Frank hide.
Anne Frank ultimately died in a concentration camp from the same disease that her sister died from, but still maintained her humanity even in the worst circumstances by still believing in the good of people.
