Courage over comes our dificults!

We must have courage no matter what obstacle we may face! The Frank's risked a lot when they went into hiding after they got a letter saying Margot would have to go to a concentration camp with other Jews. They had courage when they decided to go into hiding even though they were afraid that they might get caught. 'It's the silence in the night frightens me the most' (381). Anne wrote this in her diary in the first month of living in the annex. No one knew if the nazis would come and get them at night. Another example of courage is when the Frank's, Van Daan's, and Mr. Dussel are celebrating Hanukkah when a thief broke in and stole a radio and money. ''Have we lost all faith? All courage? A moment ago we thought that they'd come for us.''(408). For the last example is when Meip can't get another ration book to get more food for everyone in the annex, however she couldn't get more and the food is scarce. ''For two long years we have lived here, side by side. We have respected each others rights ..... we have managed to live in peace. Are we now going to throw it all away?''(425).Everyone in the annex were not the only ones that might have experienced this.

Hope is powerful; so powerful it can get you through hard times!

We need to have hope even when we see no way out! When the two families and Mr. Dussel have lived in the annex for two years hoping the nazis will be stopped. Meip tells everyone ''British, Americans, French, Dutch, Poles, Norwegians...... all of them! More than four thousand ships! Churchill spoke, and General Eisenhower! D-day, they call it!''(428). Everyone thought it would be over soon. This news that Meip told made everyone have hope if they lost it. Another example of hope is when everyone was sent to a concentration camp and Anne had hope that they would make it. Mr. Frank told Meip ''But Anne was happy in the camp in Holland where they first took us.'' ''....she could be out....out in the sun shine and the fresh air that she loved.''(434). Anne sought the good in everything and turned it around where she could understand and seek hope! For the last example of hope would be when Mr. Frank escapes the death camp and hopes if anyone is still alive it would be Anne. ''But Anne..... I still hoped..... Yesterday I went to Rotterdam. I'd heard of a women there...... She'd been in Belsen with Anne....... I know now.'' (434) Days here were other who still had a grasp on hope during these rough times.
