 1 Anne Frank wrote on the first page of her diary:

    "I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to
    confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and
5   Anne Frank has been called the "human face of the Holocaust." She kept a
    diary for 25 months, when she was in hiding from the Nazis. Her diary is a
    record of her spirit and hope in the face of cruelty and danger. Her words help
    us in our struggle to understand how to deal with the violence and hatred we
    find in the world today.

10 Anne Frank had been in hiding from the Nazis for 25 months with her family
   and friends when the Gestapo found them. The house was searched for
   everything of value. One of the men found Otto Frank’s briefcase, where
   Anne’s diary was kept. They were allowed to take five minutes to get ready.
   Anne left her diary behind.

15 After the family was arrested, they were all taken to concentration camps.
   Edith Frank, Anne’s mother, died of starvation in Auschwitz on January 6,
   1945, a day before the camp was liberated. Margot, Anne’s sister, and Anne
   herself both died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen, Margot in March, 1945 and Anne
   in April, 1945, a few weeks before it, too, was liberated. Otto Frank, her father,
20 was the only one left from the whole family (Anne Frank’s Timeline).

   When Otto Frank returned and entered the abandoned home and Annex, he
   noticed a drawer open in the antique wooden dresser in the corner. In the
   drawer there was a green folder marked in 'Miep Gies' handwriting, "Anne’s
   Diary." As Otto opened it, tears poured down his face. As he sat on the hard,
25 cold, wooden floor, he began to read aloud the first page: "I hope I will be able
   to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone,
   and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support..." (Frank, 1995).

   Anne was the type of person who always looked on the bright side of things.
   Even when she was in hiding, she never doubted the fact she would get out of
30 there alive. She said as one of her first impressions of the Annex, "The Annex
   is an ideal place to hide in. It may be damp and lopsided, but there’s probably
   not a more comfortable hiding place in all of Amsterdam. No, in all of
   Holland" (Frank, 1995). She would also sometimes prefer the Annex to the
   outside, because it protected her from the dangers of the street. She referred to
35 it once as "a little piece of blue heaven, surrounded by heavy black rain clouds"
   (Brown, 1991). A hero should always be positive, and that is what Anne was.
   She never gave up hope, not until the moment she died.
   Anne and her family lived in the Secret
   Annex for almost three years without
40 ever once setting foot outdoors. The
   eight members of the house couldn’t
   move from 8:30 AM to 6:30 PM, so no
   one would hear them below.

   To keep herself strong, she used a diary
45 she received for her 13th birthday as an
   outlet for her fear. "When I write, I can
   shake off all my cares" (Anne Frank:
   Her Life and Times). She must have had
   to be extremely brave to sit in bed at
50 night and hear the sirens, taking away
   friends and family. She also heard the
   bombs and explosions, as the war raged
   around her. For her to be able to handle
   this, and still go on living a semi-
55 normal life, as recorded in her diary, proved that she was very brave.

    By writing her famous diary, Anne Frank helped the world understand that the
    6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust had faces, lives, and personalities. Her
    personal record of "her struggle to keep hope alive through the darkest days of
    this century has touched the hearts of millions" (Müller).

60 A boy, who was once so moved after he performed
   in a play about Anne, wrote to Otto Frank, and said
   that he realized that "not only does Anne stand for
   the Jews, but for any human being who suffered
   because of his beliefs, color, or race" (Brown,1991).
