The Frank Family She was born in Frankfurt, Germany; her family emigrated to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. When Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, the Frank family immediately realized that it was time to flee. Otto later said, "Though this did hurt me deeply, I realized that Germany was not the world, and I left my country forever."

She wrote her first entry, addressed to an imaginary friend named Kitty, that same day: "I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.“ Going into Hiding Weeks later, on July 5, 1942, Margot received an official summons to report to a Nazi work camp in Germany. The very next day, on July 6, 1942 the family went into hiding in makeshift quarters in an empty space at the back of Otto Frank's company building, which they referred to as the Secret Annex. Photos of the Secret Annex They were accompanied in hiding by Otto's business partner Hermann van Pels as well as his wife, Auguste, and son, Peter.

Then, describe the you that is on the inside, that most people do not ever see. Bell work: Friday, Jan. 6 Anne Frank says, "I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are really good at heart." You know that history books, and the newspapers and television, are full of terrible things. Are people good at heart? Is anyone all evil? Is anyone all good? Feel free to give examples, from your own life, from the news, or from history.

Choose a character, identify his / her weakness, prove it in a CD, and predict how this weakness will affect the goal of the group. List the major conflicts so far developed in the play.

What connections, parallels, or ironies exist between the conflicts inside and the conflicts outside of the Annex. Act I Scene 4-5 Does Anne seem to have typical teenage attitudes toward her parents?
