Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
Transcript of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl
This book takes place in Anne's hiding place, the "Secret Annexe." Her family stays there for several years to hide from the Nazis.
"There is a steep staircase immediately opposite the entrance. On the left a tiny passage brings you into a room which was to become the Frank family's bed-sitting-room, next door a smaller room, study and bedroom for the two young ladies of the family. On the right a little room with out windows containing the washbasin and a small W.C. compartment, with another door leading to Margot's and my room."

The climax of this book was when Anne and her family's hiding place, the "Secret Annexe" was discovered
This book was Anne Frank's diary from June 14, 1942 to August 4, 1944. She was a Jew living during the time of World War II, when Hitler and the Nazis were taking over. Her family had to go into hiding to avoid being captured and sent to the concentration camps.
Anne and her family
"After May 1940, good times rapidly fled: first the war, then the capitulation, followed by the arrival of the Germans, which is when the sufferings of us Jews really began." (Page 4)
At the end Anne's diary, the afterword tells of how the Franks were captured by the Nazis. Anne, Margot, and Mrs. Frank all died in the concentration camps, but Mr. Frank lived to see the end of the war.
The falling action of Anne Frank's story was when her family was separated and brought to the concentration camps.
Inside the Secret Annexe
"Mrs. Frank died in the imfirmary barracks at the Auschwitz on January 6, 1945... Otto Frank survived to be liberated by the Russians... Margot died at the end of February or beginning of March 1945... 'and soon afterwards she [Anne] died, peacefully, feeling that nothing bad happened to her' She was not yet sixteen." (Afterword - Page 279-280)
Miep Gies, a lady who helped hide the Frank family
Many people helped hide Anne Frank's family.
"But to continue the story - you see, I've not finished yet - when we arrived at the Prinsengracht, Miep took us quickly upstairs and into the "Secret Annexe." She closed the door behind us and we were alone." (Page 19)
Air raids regularly happened near the "Secret Annexe."
"We've just had our third air raid; I clench my teeth together just to make myself feel courageous." (Page 95)
Anne's family and the other Jews hiding in the "Secret Annexe" had to be very quiet at times to avoid being caught.
Entrance to the "Secret Annexe"
"The three of us waited in suspense. A minute or two later Mrs. Van Daan came upstairs; She'd been listening to the wireless in the private office. She told us that Pim had asked her to turn off the wireless and go softly upstairs. But you know what that's like, if you want to be extra quiet, the each step of the old stairs creaks twice as loudly." (page 73)
"But on August 4, 1944, following information provided by a Dutch informer, the Gestapo penetrated into the Franks' hiding place. (Afterword - Page 278)
"On the platform men and women were separated. It was the last Otto Frank saw of his family." (Afterword - Page 278)
