Anne Frank is a Jewish girl who has to go into hiding during World War Two to avoid the Nazis. Together with seven others she hides in the secret annex on the Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam. After almost 2 years in hiding they are discovered and deported to concentration camps. Anne’s father, Otto Frank, is the only one of the eight people to survive. After her death Anne becomes world famous because of the diary she wrote while in hiding.
A theme in The Diary of Anne Frank is “faith will get you through a lot” and was expressed throughout. There were many times during the period they were in the annex that faith was expressed. Like in the hard time were they were scared because a thief came and heard them in the annex and they were scared he would go to the police and tell them what he heard so Mrs. Frank prayed “I lift up mine eyes unto the mountains, from whence cometh my help” (408).Even though the rest of them are scared Mrs. Frank shows faith by pray. Faith is also show when Meir announces “they landed on the coast of Normandy … British, Americans, French, Dutch, Poles, Norwegians…”(428).
