Theme 1

In The Diary of Anne Frank, one of the themes is that perservance is an important quality to have in a hardships. They did different things to preserver in the hard 2 years they had. Anne sung "Oh Hanukkah! Oh, Hanukkah! The sweet celebration..." (408). One of the ways the persevered is by keeping up with the holiday traditions. They celebrated Hanukkah. The Annex members remembered and did not give up on traditions and faith. Another example of perservance is having mouschi around.

Theme 2

Another theme in the Diary of Anne Frank is that courage is important to have in a difficulty. After a robber broke into the store below them everyone was terrified and was panicking. During the panic Mrs. Frank stared to pray "I lift up mine eyes unto the mountains, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord who made the heavens and the earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved. . . He that keepeth thee will not slumber. . . "(408). Another example of courage is important to have in a difficulty is Mr. Kaler "He was standing staring at the bookcase. He said he thought he remembered a door there that used to go up to a loft? Then he told me he wanted more money"(415). Mr. Kraler pushed through not telling the guy and not having to pay but he kept to his word and did not tell anyone.

Anne's symbol

I choose Anne and a symbol I picked for her is a diary. Anne received her diary when she was 13. She would write in her diary when she needed someone to talk to. Anne joyfully stated "A diary! I've never had a diary. And I've always longed for one. Pencil, pencil, pencil, pencil"(379).
