How Did Anne Frank's Diary Affect Our Opinions On The Holocaust?
Transcript of How Did Anne Frank's Diary Affect Our Opinions On The Holocaust?
By Olivia Wendel
Anne Frank's diary contained many entries about war, including:
Her diary greatly affected our views on the Holocaust. Anne made us realize what it was like to a Jew during World War II. I believe that people should not be treated differently and inhumanely because of their religion and beliefs.
Anne Frank and her family went into hiding July 6, 1942. Anne was 12 years old when this happened, and when she was found by Nazis August 4, 1944. Anne was in hiding for over two years. She was taken to a concentration camp, Bergen-Belsen, where she died at the age of 15.
While she was in hiding, Anne kept a diary. She got this diary for her 12th birthday, which was only a few days before she and her family went into hiding. She wrote about her personal life, love, peace, World War II and the Holocaust.
Quotes About War From Anne Frank's Diary
“I don't believe that the big men, the politicians and the capitalists alone are guilty of the war. Oh, no, the little man is just as keen, otherwise the people of the world would have risen in revolt long ago! There is an urge and rage in people to destroy, to kill, to murder, and until all mankind, without exception, undergoes a great change, wars will be waged, everything that has been built up, cultivated and grown, will be destroyed and disfigured, after which mankind will have to begin all over again.”
“What's the point of the war? Why, oh why can't people live together peacefully? Why all this destruction?”
“You only really get to know a person after a fight. Only then can you judge their true characters!”
“Why is England manufacturing bigger and better airplanes and bombs and at the same time churning out new houses for reconstruction? Why are millions spent on the war each day, while not a penny available for medical science, artists or the poor? Why do people have to starve when mountains of food are rotting away in other parts of the world? Oh, why are people so crazy?”
