Anne Frank

 

My favourite character in the book is Anne Frank. Indeed, we can read her opinion about world war II. Firstly, she’s very worried about the nazi occupation because she has lost many friends. She also wants to survive the holocaust, so it’s important for the people in hiding to stay in the annex. However she wants to go oustide because she needs to. I find her descriptions in the diary very easy to understand and we can experience the difficult clandestine life of the Jews.
Anne is very strong for her age because she has a bad relationship with her parents. She doesn’t talk to her mother and she finds herself different from the other people who live in the annex. I have many things in common with her like the passion to learn and work hard. To conclude, I think Anne must have been a brave girl and a sweet person.

My interview with Otto Frank

If I could meet someone from the Annexe, I would like to meet Otto Frank (Anne’s father). I would like to meet him because he is the only one from the Annexe who survived the genocide, for this reason I think his testimony would be interesting. If I could meet him, I would be very impressed because he experienced dreadful moments, which are unthinkable in our daily life, so I think he would know a lot about the difficulties of life. I would ask him about the atmosphere in the Annexe, the best moments he spent in the Annexe, and if he thought that they would have stayed in for two long years. I would also ask him if he had a good relationship with Anne, like shewrote in her diary. Furthemore, I would ask him if he knew that his daughter was writing a diary, and if he learnt things about her when he read it. I would also ask him questions about the living conditions in Auswitch and his life after the genocide. For example, I would ask him if it changed his vision of the world.

Put yourself into someone else’s shoes; Imagine you had to flee and you went into hiding because you were discriminated against and your life was in danger. What would you take with you? What wouldn’t you be able to live without?

 

 

 

 

 

My first thought would be to bring my computer because there are so many things you can do with it! For example, you can read books, even write one if you’re feeling like doing it, listen to music or watch a movie… But after considering it, it may not be such a wise choice because computer can be traced. And if my life was in danger I would certainly not want to be found! I believe choosing a suitcase full of my favorite books would be better (I would inevitably bring the « Raven Cycle » series along with « Six of Crows » and some others)! Books are unavoidable if you want to escape reality or just clear your head, same goes for music by the way. Bringing headphones and music isn’t negotiable. I just won’t survive without it. A radio would be the best way to keep me informed and some blankets would be needed for cold nights. And finally, last but not least, my precious notebook (and a sharpened pencil) would be part of the trip, in order to write down my thoughts, potential stories and practice my drawing skills. Anyway, I hope I would never be discriminated against, especially because of who I am. Nobody should have to hide who they are and furthermore shouldn’t be discriminated for it. People who are strong and brave enough to rise up for who they are, for themselves, should be respected for their bravery. We all have something to learn from them! Everyone should be given the choice to live without fearing or hiding and that regardless of their sexuality, their ethnic or religious origins, their gender or even their favorite ice-cream flavor! Unfortunately, it is not up to me. It is up to everyone; to bring justice, to change the world, to make it a better place.

Imagine you are Anne’s mother, Edith.

 

What Anne thinks about me :
She thinks I treat her like a baby but it’s only because I love her ! She’s convinced that I prefer Margot… It’s not true but Margot is generally more easy-going and she’s not as insolent as her ! Anne also thinks that all I do is annoying and I’m not as good as her father, not as kind as Otto. It’s because if I’m not strict, Anne does all that she wants and it’s impossible in the Annexe ! Finally, she says I don’t understand teenagers, particularly her. It’s very hurtful !

What I think about Anne :
I know, I’m not the perfect mother. But Anne is really stubborn. She believes she knows everything about  life or about people ! She always stands up to me ! I love her so much, she is my daughter but she should respect me. She’s still a little girl and I must protect her despite the fact that she believes she’s an adult. Furthermore, she doesn’t talk to me, so I can’t understand her. I’m very disappointed with our relationship.

Imagine you could meet one of the people from the book.

 

First of all, all the characters of the book seem interesting but if I could meet one of the people from the book, I would choose Anne’s dad named Otto Frank.
I would have a friendly relationship with him in order to ask him many questions. So I would like to learn things about Germany during the war and about his private life. I would ask him how they found the Annexe and if he thought they could have survived in the Annexe till the end of the war. I would also like to know about the lessons he taught Anne, his favourite room and places in the Annexe and what he missed the most during that period. I could easily guess what it was: certainly his freedom. Then, we would talk about his life in the concentration camps, how he managed to survive and what he felt when he was separated from his family. Moroever, I would talk to him about the success of Anne’s diary and what he thinks about it, if it makes him happy. Finally, I would know how his life was after the liberation, why he wanted so much the Annexe to become a museum and lots of things about his daily life.
To conclude, I would choose him because he could give me much information. In addition, he was optimistic, calm and helpful, so he has many qualities that I appreciate.

Imagine you could meet one of the people from the book.

 

First of all, some people in the book seem to be interesting to meet but if I had to choose someone, I would choose Anne Frank.
I would choose her because she seems really nice, interesting, friendly and welcoming. I would have a friendly relationship with her. If I could meet her, I would like her to answer many questions. So I would ask her how life was  in the Secret Annexe, what she missed the most from her ex-life. I would inquire about the people she liked the most in the Secret Annexe and who  she couldn’t stand being with. Then, I would like to know which teachers and friends she missed the most, how the class with her dad was and who was the happiest to work. In addition, I would wonder about what she did when she got bored and who was her confident. I would also talk about how she felt when she was separated from her family. Finally, I would ask her how life was in the concentration camps and the first thing she would have done if she had survived.
To conclude I would choose Anne Frank because I find her ambitious, clever and nice.

Describe a place which is important in the story and explain why it is significant

 

 

I’ll describe the attic. Firstly, this little room is located in the last floor ; it’s quite dark even if there is a window but it’s hidden by curtains. Then, we can think that there are probably some spider webs on the nook and we must find also some pieces of furniture covered in dust because they do not sweep up a lot this room, indeed it isn’t an important place like the living room.

I’ve chosen to deal with the attic owing to the fact that i’s the only place in the Secret Annexe where Anne and Peter can be alone without an adult. I believe that if someone had to stay hidden somewhere, during a long period, moreover with a group of people, they would sometimes need some privacy and a quiet place to kill time.
To illustrate that, Peter likes spending a lot of his time in the attic, it’s perhaps for all these reasons : far from the arguments between the members of the Annex, he can read or just think of everything and nothing, and dream in peace.
For Anne and Peter, the attic is also a place where they can meet to talk about their life in the Annex, share their secrets, their fears and above all, it’s the place where they can live their love story.

The Secret Annexe

I’ll describe the secret annexe, located in Amsterdam.
Firstly the hiding place is in the building where  Otto Frank worked .
The entrance of this annex, located in the second floor, is concealed behind a movable bookcase. There’s just one small step in front of the door, and then you’re inside.
To the left there is a room that was the Frank family’s living-room and bedroom. Next door is a smaller room, the bedroom and the study of the two young ladies. To the right of the stairs is a kind of bathroom. It’s a windowless room with just a sink. Up the stairs there’s a large, light and spacious room. It contains a gas cooker and a sink. This was the kitchen, the Van Daan Family’s bedroom, the general living room and the dining room.
Finally, a tiny side room was to be Peter’s bedroom.

To conclude, I’ve described this place because it’s for me the most important place in the story. The Franks and the Van Daans were hidden there for two years before they were captured.

If you could, which character from the book would you meet?

 

If I could meet one person from the book, it would be Mr.Dussel because he was the last one to arrive at the Secret Annexe, therefore he might have seen things differently. Firstly, I would like to know if he wanted to change some rules that seemed stupid to him. I also would like to know if Anne’s mother was that terrible and if Anne was easy to live with. Then, I would ask him how he felt when he arrived in the Annexe, for example how everyone welcomed him and with whom he got on better. I don’t know what kind of relationship I would have with Mr Dussel because in the book, Anne describes him like the way she saw him so I don’t think it’s an objective point of view. However, I think I would get on well with him because he seems well- educated and he seems to be kind. Finally,  I would ask him if he had read Anne’s diary at least once and what he thought about what Anne had written about him.
