The Diary of a Young Girl Anne Frank Dana Ebley, Kate Reinhardt, Michele Smith & Soyoung Lee Slide 2 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. Slide 3 Since youve never been through a war, Kitty, and since you know very little about life in hiding, in spite of my letters, let me tell you, just for fun, what we each want to do first when were able to go outside againId be so overjoyed I wouldnt know where to begin Slide 4 Alls fair in love and war All Jews were required to wear a yellow star turn it their bicycles do their shopping between 3 and 5 PM go to only Jewish owned Barber Shops and Beauty Parlors attend Jewish Schools Slide 5 but you have to make sacrifices for a good causeif we can save even one of our friends, the rest doesnt matter, All Jews were forbidden to go to Theaters, Movies or any other forms of entertainment ride in cars even their own Use athletic fields take part in any athletic activity in public be on the streets between 8 PM and 6AM Sit in their gardens after 8:00 PM Visit Christians in their homes use street cars Slide 6 Its like the slave hunts of the olden days This is because of the Nuremberg Laws Slide 7 God has not forsaken me, and He never will. Slide 8 It wont do us or those outside any good if we continue to be as gloomy as we are now. This is one of the last pictures taken of Anne and her sister before they went into hiding Slide 9 I now know that courage and happiness are needed first! Volksempfanger Transistor Radio The Radio of the people 75% of all households had one Mass produced by Hitler Helped keep everyone informed Kept up morale Slide 10 Leave me alone, let me have at least one night when I dont cry myself to sleep with my eyes burningall day long I hear nothing but what an exasperating child I am Slide 11 its not easy being the badly brought-up center of attention of a family of nitpickers. sometime Ill treat others with the same contempt as they treated mesounds childish, but wait till it happens to you! Anne and Margot Frank in 1932 Slide 12 Weve got to be reasonable about everything we do here 263 Prinsengracht - The Annex The Frank family in 1940 Slide 13 I have more experience than most; I have experienced something almost no one my age ever has. Up to now our bedroom, with its blank walls, was very bare. Thanks to Father who brought my entire postcard and movie star collection here beforehand and to a brush and pot of glue, I was able to plaster the wall with pictures. It looks much more cheerful. Slide 14 Misfortunes never come singly. The hinged bookshelf that hid the Frank family in the Annex Slide 15 Oh, its hard to be strong and brave in every way The helpers, from left to right: Mr. Kleiman, Miep Gies, Bep Voskuijl, and Mr. Kugler. Slide 16 many are waiting for death. Slide 17 Its twice as hard for us young people to hold on to our opinions at a time when ideals are being shattered and destroyed, when the worst side of human nature predominates, when everyone has come to doubt truth, justice and God. Slide 18 we live in a paradise compared to the Jews who arent in hiding. Jews were separated in to groups of those who could work and those who could not. Those who could not would die the end is nowhere in sight. As for us, were quite fortunate. Slide 19 We were caught in a vicious circle of unpleasantness and sorrow. Always cautious Crowded All ways the risk of being caught No bathtubs She lost her childhood and had to grow up very quickly Food was scarce Constant argument Little or no activity Dependent on outsiders for survival Despite all these circumstances, the people living in the annex still tried to lead normal lives You can be lonely even when youre loved by many people, since you are still not anybodys one and only Slide 20 Ifeel like a songbird whose wings have been ripped off and who keeps hurling itself against the bars of its dark cage I long to ride a bike, dance, whistle, look at the world, feel young and know that Im free. Slide 21 The most you can do is pray for God to perform a miracle and save at least some of them Anne and her family spent 25 months hiding in the Annex over her fathers office in Amsterdam Slide 22 Enough for today yours Anne M. Frank August 4 th 1944 between 10:00 and 10:30 they arrested the 8 people hiding in the Annex Margo and Anne Franke were transported from Auschwitz at the end of October and brought to Bergen-Belsen Concentration camp near Hannover The Typhus epidemic that broke out in the concentration camp it the winter of 1944-1945 killed Margo and few days later Anne. Her approximate date of death is between late February and early March The bodies of both girls were probably dumped in the Bergen- Belsens mass graves The camp was liberated by British troops on April 12 th 1945
