Courage gets you through the darkest of times
The theme is courage gets you through the darkest of times is seen throughout the story. Mr. Frank took a huge risk to move his family to an entirely new country. Mr. Frank took a risk and walked through the middle of town to get to the Secret Annex. Mr. Frank said “There were too many Green Police on the streets we had to take the long way around.” (373)
Another way Mr. Frank showed courage when a thief broke in and he went down stairs to check. When he came back up to the annex, he said “It was a thief. That noise must have scared him away.” (408)
