Anne Frank Entries

          At the end of scene one, Anne mentions several restrictions placed on the Jewish people. These included always wearing a Star of David, Mr. Frank being forced out of his job, she could no longer go to school, ride the streetcar, nor ride in an automobile. All these things would cause major hardships and financial struggles for anyone. I would have just worn the Yellow Stars of David, for it is not a big deal.For me to lose my job, making money would be hard, I would try sell what ever items I don’t need to live. I would hate being segregated from owning an automobile or riding in one. I would just have to get a bike and not complain. Not being able to go to school would be a problem because I believe that education is very important, I most likely would have been home schooled and read books. I believe that a couple of these are a big problems, transportation and Mr. Frank’s job, but the others aren’t huge problems, and these are addressed by Anne because she is a kid and doesn’t need to worry about them.

Act 1, Scene 1, Response 1

 

           In scene 2, the two families, the VanDann’s and the Frank’s, who are total strangers , move into a hiding place together. My family and I would handle this by sticking together and by being there for each other. We would do this by making sure all of us are healthy and by cheering up each other. We would probably face the problems of boredom and sickness. We would face these problems because of lack of entertainment and medication. We would cope with these problems by trying to be entertaining, but quiet at the same time, and by staying as healthy as possible.

Act 1, Scene 4, Response 1 

          At the end of scene, Anne mentions several things that people wished to do once it is safe to go outside again. If I was going to do something after I was in their situation, I would have taken a long, hot, relaxing, shower, and then go on a long hike around our neighborhood. I would take the shower because I'm pretty sure they did not have running water. I would then take a hike because it would allow me to do many things I could not do in hiding. I would love the fresh air. I would also extremely enjoy the freedom to run around and be as loud as I wanted to with no restrictions in the outside world.

Act 1, Scene 5, Response 2 

            If my family and I were hiding like the franks and celebrating Hanukkah, it would not be any different. For my family and I, Hanukkah is about being together, saying our prayers and thanking god for getting us through bad situations; like the exodus from Egypt. We would know that god would get us and other jews through this, and it would be another thing we would thank him about. Already at the beginning of Hanukkah my grandmother says it is about being together, not the presents or food. That is the way we would celebrate Hanukkah if we were in the Franks position. It would be sad not to have a real feast or gifts, but Hanukkah is about saying our thanks and being together. That is all Hanukah will ever be to my family and I.

 

           I disagree that you don’t need friends to be happy. Life is purposeless without social communication. In your best moments your friends are there. When you're lonely or bored you can talk to a friend. You can’t be happy unless you have friends. Could you imagine being in the holocaust hiding by yourself for three, four, or five years? I know I can’t. Could you image the rest of your life without friends? I doubt it. Without friends you can’t have fun. Luckily for Peter, he has Anne. Lucky for me, I have friends of my own.

Act 2, Scene 4, Response 1

             At the end of the passage, Mr. Frank says she puts me to shame. This is an appropriate end to the story because it is his reflection on his actions and opinions compared to her opinions and how they might’ve interpreted the events that happened to them differently. This is an appropriate ending because it shows how Anne never had any residual anger that she wrote in the diary or portrayed outloud. This shows that Mr. Frank was ashamed that he had anger towards the Nazis, even though he didn’t express this anger out loud, but Anne never had any anger towards them, out loud or in the diary. That makes this a good ending because it shows how someone can be positive in no matter what situation and brings the story to a good conclusion.

 

Act 2, Scene 5, Response 1

           The last quote Mr. Frank reads is, “in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” This quote is very important to Anne’s character and memory. This quote shows that Anne never had any harsh feelings towards the Nazis. It shows that Anne is willing to not forgive people for the things they have done, but is willing to give them another chance. This quote is important to remembering her because it shows that she was still a child when she died. This shows she was still young enough to have the innocence to not see that some people are not completely good at heart.
