Diary of Anne Frank




The beginning

Today me and my family went into hiding. It's July, the 5th if you wanted to know. It was hard leaving the ole farm but, you got to do what you got to do. We moved to this old barn looking thing. Which I was used to since I do live on a farm. I figured I would start this diary as a way to keep me busy. Okay, so here I go!

July 20th.

Hi, I'm Anne Frank. I don't really know how to do this "diary" thing but, it's a good way to keep me busy during this hiding stuff we have to do. I have one sister, Margot. She's perfect. In every way there is according to my mom Edith Frank. My dad, Otto Frank is a generous hard working man, I love him to death! I can connect with him in a way I can't with my mom.

July 22nd.

Sorry I didn't write in you yesterday, I slept. It's so boring here. Ugh! You can't do crap but, sit here like an idiot and be quiet. (Which I don't like to do AT ALL.)

July 23rd.

Today the phone rang. We all panicked. Even the Vann Dann's (the Vann Dann's are the other family that moved in with us in the barn.) panicked. Mr. Vann Dann wanted to answer it! Oh my gosh! He is nuts! The Nazis could find out where we are I told that idiot. Other than that it was just another boring day in the barn.

July 24th.

Not only did the phone ring again today, someone was at the door. A man. A tall man. He was in a tux, black with a white vest and orange tie. His hair was long and shaggy. He also had greenish blue eyes. He looked like a business man because he had a black briefcase. We didn't answer of coarse. But the man walked in. Luckily we all were upstairs watching and thank God he didn't come up stairs!

July 25th.

Today is my granny's birthday. I wish I could see her. I don't even know if she is dead or not. I have no clue where she is since she isn't hiding. Before I left last year she told me "Be strong baby, be strong." I told her I would. I also asked if she is going into hiding she replied with "There's reason to my dear, I mean, I am 87! If they decide to take me they will. It's all up to God." Then we had to leave as soon as I gave her a hug.

July 26th.

I read my bible today! I figured if anyone could get me through this God can! I read two of my favorite verses. "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13 and "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten, Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting life." John 3:16.

July 27th.

Today was a good day, I guess. But the best part of all is that I found a picture of me in my jeans pocket!

July 28th.

Today I met Mr. and Mrs. Vann Dann's son, Peter. He is dreamy! I think we might go out. Well, got to go Peter asked if I wanted to come to his room.

July 29th.

It's too bad I didn't acknowledge Peter before. It's been about 2 years in the barn. The Nazis will be coming soon. I just wished I had a better relationship with my mom. I don't want to be taken regretting something from this experience..

August 1st.

Today we heard screaming at the door. It was them, the green police. Their here. Why hide when you know you'll be taken either way? I don't want to live my life in hiding. Only God knows what will happen next. I drew this picture the last 2 days (which is why I haven't been writing) it took time. It's not perfect but fine with me. I want to get my point across. I want to be free.
