Anne Frank Diary of a
PAGES 3 WORDS 1086

There were times when Hitler's life was threatened, when it seemed to become clear that people weren't going to stand for what he was doing. Frank notes that there were even "lots of officers and generals who are sick of the war and would like to see Hitler descend into a bottomless pit" (Frank 264). Frank finds hope in the fact that there are people who are Jewish like she who are appalled and sickened by Hitler's actions. This is another example of Frank's spirit grabbing onto whatever hope she can find. For such a young girl she follows the war closely and though she never allows herself to get her hopes up too high ("I don't want to anticipate the glorious events too soon") (265), there is always a sense that she has a deep belief in the power of the human spirit, in general, and that people….

Anne Frank the Main Points
PAGES 5 WORDS 1621

No sophisticated discussion of the Holocaust, Israel, or even the diary of Anne Frank can avoid the complex issues surrounding the early Zionist movement. The United States support for Israel could also be controversial in class. However, the Holocaust was of such tremendous scale and historical relevance that awareness of anti-Semitism and Jewish history has increased dramatically throughout Western Europe and North America.
Comparing the experience of oppression, persecution, and torture of the Jews with the experience of oppression by other groups of people would offer the richest opportunities for students of history. History is about synthesis, analysis, and finding patterns among world cultures and in different periods of time. A multidisciplinary approach to history that incorporates some elements of personal psychology and sociology also enriches classroom discussions. This unit uses Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl to illustrate the multidisciplinary nature of history.

Anne Frank Had She Lived
PAGES 6 WORDS 1680

She tried to encourage her sister Margot, who was so dear to her. hen Anne felt discouraged, she turned to her diary, a place where she could be totally free.
Anne Frank's spirit and her gift for writing call to mind a modern hero, a boy named Mattie Stepanek. Like Anne, Mattie was a writer. Before he was fourteen years old, he had published six books of poetry, including the bestseller Heartsongs. He wanted to be known as a peacemaker and his poetry reflected this wish to make the world a better place. He was a charming and confident public speaker. He was able to fulfill his dreams of meeting his own hero, former President Jimmy Carter, and appearing on Oprah infrey's show to talk about poetry and peace. Like Anne, Mattie always tried to put the brightest possible face on everything. It was not easy. He too was a….

Anne Frank's Diary: An Analytical Perspective Why is Anne Frank's Story and Diary important to World History?
In essence, Ann Frank’s Diary could be seen as an amazingly vivid Holocaust-period life account. Through the dairy, we see the world through the eyes of an innocent girl. It offers a description of the difficult times those who hid in the annexe experienced, including Anne and her family. The diary permits us to personalize an important period in the history of the world and assess the horrors of persecution at a more intimate level. It gives us a different perspective of dark period where human rights and equality were routinely trampled upon. Also, it indicates that throughout history, there are some who never lost hope in a better society, regardless of the level of exposure to barbarity. There is clear demonstration to the effect that despite immense conflict, there are always sober minds that….

ANNE FANK'S DIAY
The objective of this study is to explain the living situation of the people in the annex where Anne Frank and her family went into hiding and to examine the excerpts read from Anne Frank's diary and answer as to how Anne sees her own situation compared to that of other Jews and what Anne's emotional response was to the situation. Finally this study will answer as to the limitations of the reader's understanding and the connection points and why Anne Frank's diary became so important and so well-known.

Anne Frank writes in her diary on the 13th day of January 1943 that things are happening which are terrible, both during the day and at night and specifically states in her writings that people are being taken from their homes with only a small sack of belongings and a little bit of cash which are stolen from them as….

Diary of Anne Frank
The importance of Anne Frank's diary lies not in the fact that it is an eyewitness to the terrors of the Holocaust, for this is but one in thousands, it lies in the fact her writings reaffirm man's faith and hope in his fellow man and demonstrate that even under the most depressing of circumstances one can live, love, dream, and experience the entire spectrum of human emotions. The book is about survival, prejudice, the nobility of human compassion. It is also about young girl during adolescence.

This work has maintained its popularity for a number of reasons. This diary is an important historical document. It was written contemporaneously with the events. Anne was born in 1929 and receives her diary on her 13th birthday; just weeks before her family were driven into hiding in Nazi occupied Amsterdam. The dairy recounts twenty-five months of confinement in a….

Diary of Anne Frank in
PAGES 4 WORDS 1192


The book captures the negative feelings of the characters up until the end when Anne is conflicted by the negativity she experiences all around her and the hopefulness she feels for a future - especially with Peter. This type of naivety is perfect for the written page because one never truly express all of the feelings one experiences regardless of how one tries. Here we see Anne not trying to convey anything to an audience and thus she expresses a mood and emotion that is completely spontaneous and unassuming. e can never have this with a film because the very act of filming removes any sense of realism from the scene. However, we can know that Anne was writing only for an audience of one and this lends more credibility to the novel because it is authentic in a way that a planned film could never be.

The ending of the….

All of the residents of the attic live with the constant fear of discovery, and death looms over the Secret Annex.
However, although Anne and Peter are more grown-up in many ways than adolescents who lead a more normal childhood, they also are far more under the watchful eyes of their parents, almost as if they are small children. The growing restlessness of Anne and Peter, combined with the closeness of the environment exacerbates the normal tensions that always exist between the parents and children. The divisions between the married couples, the Franks and the Van Daans, are also amplified because of the tensions of the war, the small living quarters, and the lack of privacy.

Q4) Give an example of anti-Semitism.

Anti-Semitism is manifest in the fact that Anne and her family had wear yellow stars, to identify them as Jews, and were denied basic rights (such as the ability to….

The Widow and Miss Watson see nothing wrong with slavery in modern society, while Huck actually takes actions to end slavery by leading Jim to freedom and treating Jim like a human being.
6. "To be or not to be, that is the bare bodkin."

Twain, Mark. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Signet, 2002, p. 143.

The Shakespearean 'actors' Jim and Huck befriend are really charlatans, despite their pretence of learning. They cannot even quote William Shakespeare's Hamlet in his "To be or not to be" soliloquy correctly.

7. "He says anyone who doesn't understand the theorems of Euclid is an idiot."

McCourt, Frank. Angela's Ashes. New York: Scribner, 1999, p.151.

The references to Euclid show the disparity between what is taught in Frank's school by an ambitious teacher and the poverty and ignorance of the rest of the boy's life. It also shows the narrow-mindedness of the principal, who is horrified that young boys….

"Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood." In how Frank McCourt writes that "nothing can compare with the Irish version," this demonstrates an isolated regard and illuminates his drive to move back to the United States. Moreover, Angela's overpowering molestation parallels Frank's social injustice (oppression) throughout.
In terms of the Spiritual, namely, St. Francis of Assisi, "the pious defeated mother moaning by the fire; pompous priests; bullying schoolmasters; the English and the terrible things they did to us for eight hundred long years": Frank apparently factors all these together (the oppressive Irish Catholic childhood and the oppression of the "eight hundred long years" of English oppression). Spirituality, thus, was only another restraint, an overbearing tyrannical oppressor.

As for the Mental/cognitive concern, McCourt's memoir lets on to many of these thematics (of Devol's "eleven resources"). As a narrator, McCourt….

Diary of a Young Girl
PAGES 3 WORDS 873


Sontag actually experienced warfare from a first-hand perspective and even though she appreciates that many people try to condemn war by making use of pictures and stories, she believes that it is immature to adopt such attitudes. From her perspective, it would be impossible for a person to provide others with a chance to understand what warfare is as long as the respective individuals do not experience it themselves.

Being sad, horrified, and sharing other people's pain does not actually mean that a person knows what warfare really feels like. An individual cannot possibly be able to comprehend the horrible nature of war until he is actually present in one. The problem with only being familiar with warfare from pictures and books is that people find it difficult to see the general nature of warfare because they only focus on particular aspects of it.

Anne Frank's diary is impressive and is likely….

Strength of the Human Spirit know why the Caged Bird Sings is an autobiography by Maya Angelou. It is the first book of the five volumes of the author's autobiography covering her life from the early 1930s up till 1970. This particular volume "I know why the Caged Bird Sings" is one of the most popular of the five volumes as it talks about her initial years as a child up to the time when she turns sixteen. The autobiography is based on her life as a black child, teenager and woman; it covers all elements of her family and their trials and tribulations.
Although the book is based on Angelous' life, it basically talks about the development of the human self and the impact of various experiences in life on the strength of the human spirit. As Angelou herself describes the reason for writing this book "somebody needs to….


In iesel, we find a great deal more will power and individuality. Yet, we find that the historical circumstances for the subject and his family are yet that much more irresistible. A victim of the German-perpetrated Holocaust, iesel describes the experience of being moved by history as one which came about quite unexpectedly. Their subterfuge, iesel shows in his text, would be a valuable tactic for the Nazis as they gradually entrenched themselves, in preparation for the eventual deportation and wholesale murder of the Jews. As iesel explains it, "the Germans were already in town, the Fascists were already in power, the verdict had already been pronounced, yet the Jews of Sighet continued to smile." (iesel, 7-8) His family and his neighbors were ultimately vulnerable to the mass herding and encampment of the Jews because they, like millions of others, doubted that the power afforded to the Nazi government could….

A true heroine: Miep Gies

Miep Gies is one of the great heroines of World War II. During World War II, Jewish people living in the Nazi-occupied nations lived in fear. The Nazis rounded up Jews and sent their prisoners to concentration camps. All Jews were forced to wear a yellow Star of David to identify them as Jewish. The Nazis were relentless, and there was only so much even good gentiles could do to help their fellow Jewish citizens. But the Dutch woman Miep Gies did more than the average person to help the Jewish people of Amsterdam.

The definition of a hero is someone who goes above and beyond what is expected of an average person to help others. The Frank family was….

Germans and Jews After I
Germans and Jews After orld ar I

In orld ar I, more than 12,000 Jews lost their lives fighting for Germany (Flannery, 43). They were a large part of the culture there, and had intermingled as much as they were able to. However, despite the way they were involved in so much of what was taking place in the country, they were also never really accepted. After I, Germany's official position on Jews changed. Much of that took place because the German leaders did not want to take any blame for the problems that had caused them to lose out in the war. Because they wanted to make sure the people saw them in a good light, and they did not want to admit past mistakes, they looked for scapegoats. One of the main groups for that scapegoating was the Jewish people. Even though many of them….
