What is a hero?
When you think of a hero, you probably think of a super hero however, that is
not a hero. A hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage,
outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. A hero may do something like
calling the police when a child is being kidnapped or something as little as
helping an old women with her groceries cross the street. Overall, a hero is an
outstanding citizen and leader to everyone around them.
About My Hero
My hero is Anne Frank. She
has curly brown hair and
chocolate brown eyes. Anne
Frank is from Frankfurt
Germany, a small friendly
town. Unfortunately, Anne
was born during the holocaust
as a Jew, so life was especially
hard for her. Due to being a
Jew, Anne had to go into
hiding or the German’s
military group would send her
and her family to a
concentration camp where
you’d be killed.
Anne Frank wants to be free
more than anything in the
world. She wants to be free
because when you are free
you have choices, privileges,
and freedom of rights. You
are able to say and do as you
please. Anne Frank also
dreams of being a writer.
Anne loves to write. She
writes down all her thoughts
and feelings in a daily
journal. Anne believes
without writing, she’d
Anne Frank faced many
trials in her life. One trial
she faced was the
Germans, who disliked
them because they
disapproved of their
beliefs. Because of this,
Anne faced another trial.
This trial would be being
quiet so the Germans
would not find and kill
them. Anne did her best to
stay quiet and stay out of
the Germans way. These
trials helped Anne Frank
become stronger as a
During the holocaust, Anne and her family were found due to an
anonymous Dutch caller, who made noises near their hiding place. They
were transported to a concentration camp, a place where Germans kill the
Jews. There, Anne would’ve starved to death if it hadn’t been for the help
of her friend. This friend threw food in a blanket over a barbed wire fence
that separated the two. Her friend also gave her blankets for warmth on
Anne Frank reminds us to never give up and to try hard to get to a desired
goal. With a strong spirit and hard work, you can get through any and all
tough moments. Anne Frank makes us think that anything is possible if you
believe in yourself.
The Heroism in Anne Frank
Anne Frank is a hero in many ways. One of the ways Anne functions as a hero is
that her journal entries help us in our struggle to understand how to deal with the
violence and cruelty we find in our world today. Anne also has qualities of great
hope and spirit in the face of danger and cruelty.
Some examples of what Anne Frank did are when Anne wrote an incredibly
descriptive journal which tells about Anne’s terrifying life in hiding. Anne is famous
for this journal and her story continues to spread throughout the world. Another
example of what Anne did was she went to school in the Netherlands. Anne loved
school and learning about new things. Anne made lots of friends at her school and
Anne always had a good time. Anne didn’t stay there long though. She went into
hiding a few years after she had started school, and had to leave all her friends and
her favorite place, the Netherlands.
Characteristics Anne doesn’t
Anne is not rude, disrespectful, boisterous, or mean.
She is just the opposite. Anne is smart, kind, respectful, and honest.
Anne is brave just like Jason in “The Lost Hero”. Anne is brave
when she goes to the concentration camps, and knows she will die.
Still, Anne goes forward. In comparison, Jason is brave when he
fought the most powerful giant in the world, Enceladus, by
Anne is kind just like Jason in “The Lost Hero”. Anne is kind
because she loves to help others and always looks on the bright
side of things. Jason is kind because he tries to help his friends
when they have problems. An example is when Jason helped Piper
rescue her dad from Enceladus’s grasp.
Anne is smart like Jason in “The Lost Hero”. Anne enjoys school
and loves to write and learn. Anne absorbs new things like a
sponge. Jason is also smart. Some things he knows are about
myths, legends, and a new language, latin.
