What a sad story. What a powerful writer who had no future. This describes Holocaust victim Anne Frank, the youngest in a set of two girls. I thought the diary was the greatest thing she ever wrote, yet the things that I didn't like were her criticism of her mother's faults and her obsessive relationship with Peter. I mean, every tennage girl feels distant from her mother at one point and close to her father, but I wished that she didn't see that her father was also constructive in a fiercer way. When I read about her relationship with Peter I felt kind of annoyed because he's the same age as her sister and she tried to help him overcome his quietness, which he never had a chance to fight. But aside from that, I was furious that Hitler even thought of killing Jews because it killed on of the youngest writers whose talent was writing and expressing every teenage girls' feelings.
AT my elementary school, not one person had not heard of Anne Frank. We amy not have read her diary and could give a history of her life, but we knew her. That's because I went to Anne Frank Elementary School. That is why later on in my middle school I felt compelled to read her story. What I found was a smart, witty girl who had a way with words. This made her wiser beyond her years. A contributing factor to this was the fact that she was stuck in the same annex with the same people for all those years, afraid of the Nazis wrath. This book is a classic must read for all ages. It really gives you a peek at what life was like during the halocast. I makes you scared to think that man kind was capable of such heart quenching evil.
I would have to say, for me, this was one ofthe most thought-provoking books ever.
This book, or rather a journal, is about Anne Frank, a Jewish teen in hiding during the Second World War.
This book not only gives a detailed discription of Anne's life but also some interesting historical facts about the war.
A must read!
I loved this book. I cried and felt so deeply for Anne. She is and was a remarkable girl. This book takes you into a life of an innocent girl that had no right to die. It's a great book to read along with Night by Elie Wiesel. This is because Anne's diary deals with life hiding and shows all of her sacrifice. Night however deals with what went on at the camps. A story Anne never got to tell. This diary is true and heartbreaking. I loved it! It's deffinatly for anyone 5th grade and up.
