If my family and I were in hiding, we would celebrate christmas very differently. We would most likely make our own christmas tree for the gifts. Also for the gifts, we would make something special out of the materials around the house. Next, we would celebrate how we have been together for a while without the nazi’s coming to kill us or take us to concentration camp. Then, our family would probably wish good luck to all of the people fighting in the war and those in concentration camp. Finally, we would be very happy and celebrate all night long.
If I were in hiding as long as the Van Daans and Franks were some things that I would miss is my friends, being able to eat as much as I want, and being able to go outside. I would miss my friends because they are all very important to me and not knowing what happened to them and they don’t know where I went and not really being able to have an official last goodbye before I went into hiding would really upset me. I would miss all the food I get to eat because its is not like before going into hiding that I would have had to worry about weather I would be able to get enough food for the day and not be hungry. But, when you go into hiding and get limited amounts of food and have to share it with a bunch of other people would be very frustrating. Lastly, I would miss going outside because from the point when I am in hiding i can barely see sunlight or never breath fresh air or go outside freely and play with my friends. And when I am in hiding I can barely make a sound until dinner time that night. Those are the things I would miss if I had to go into hiding.
If I was in that house in the same conditions as the Franks, I would be furious. I would be furious because we are absolutely starving and he is late at night stealing and eating the limited food supply we have. I would handle the situation by punishing him in someway. Like taking some of the food from his food supply and splitting it up for the rest of us to eat. If he does it again I would vote to kick him out of the house because we need it for survival.
If my family and I knew we were going to die be separated, we would say our last words to one another. We would probably treat each other with love and respect for each other. Because we knew that something was going to happen for the good or bad, we would stay calm most likely. Like the franks, we would pack all of the stuff we needed so we could have a chance to survive at the concentration camps. Then we would say our last goodbyes and leave each other and hope we see one another again.
I feel that it is important for kids to continue reading about Anne Frank because she is a perfect example of when things go from bad to worse and seem like they are only getting worse on how to see the brighter side of everything and have hope. When Anne says “ In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart” I believe that it is showing how even all the people who are after her and killing millions of people she still believes that there is good in all people, and that shows how we should all have our minds set, see the good in everyone. That is why I feel that kids should continue reading about Anne Frank.
The last quote Mr.Frank read from Anne’s diary is “In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart” is such an Anne important quote that exemplifies Anne’s character and memory. It shows that Anne’s mind set was always on “The glass is half full” or seeing the best in people. After all the Nazi’s had done to all those people by killing them and torturing them, she still believes that there is good in each and every single one of them, which I don’t even know if I could think that if they had done that to my friends and other people. That is why Anne’s quote exemplifies her character and memory.
