You must have courage no matter the obstacles
The theme, we must have courage no matter the obstacles was shown in Anne Franks Diary. When they are going to the Annex they had to take a another route to get there and that shows courage to go to the Annex. The Van Danns said when they got there and nobody was there "Oh no they have picked them up off the streets we should leave now when we got the chance"(381). That shows courage because even though the Franks had been almost caught they stilled went on. Another example of courage is when they are asleep one night and the noises woke Anne up and she started screaming. " The noises are what scary me the most during the night I am afraid that they are going to take me and my family"(381). This shows courage even when they are scared they still stay in hiding and not turn there selves in. The last example of courage in Anne Frank is when they are celebrating Hanukkah and someone broke in to the factory and stole some stuff. " When Mr. Frank came back up stairs and says that they have left and the door has been left open and the cash box and radio have been stolen then everyone starts freaking out because they are going to be caught and token away and then Mr. Frank says have you lost all of your courage because I sure haven't"(408-409). This shows that even when bad things happen to them they still have courage to keep on going and to stay alive.
