The Diary Of Anne Frank

The theme, showing courage when faced with obstacles is shown through out the diary of Anne frank. Anne and her family show courage by going into hiding. For example Anne saying "at five o'clock this morning mother woke me and told me to hurry and get dressed. I was to put on as many clothes as I could. It would look suspicious if we walked along carrying suit cases"(372). This shows courage because they know they can be killed. though knowing the risks of getting arrested or killed by nazis, Miep and Mr. Kraler showed courage by helping the Franks and the Van Dans. An example is when Miep says," I made up the beds....... The way Mr. Kraler and Frank said. Forgive me. I have to hurry. I've got to go to the other side of town to get some ration books for you"(374). The final example of courage is when the franks and the van dans hear a thief in the building, and decide to stay, even though the thief could go tell the nazis. For example, Mr. Frank says,"have we lost all faith? All courage? A moment ago we thought that they would come for us. We were sure it was the end. But it wasn't. We're alive and safe. We thank thee,oh lord our God, that infinite mercy thou hast again seen fit to spare us. Come on, Anne. That song! Let's have the song!(408)
