Astonishing Anne

  1. 1. Anne Frank was born in Germany in the year of 1929 to her mother Edith and her father Otto Frank. In 1933, her father, Otto Frank managed to set up business in Amsterdam. So they left Germany to go with him. A year later Anne began kindergarten at Montessori kindergarten. He father later stated “It was good for Anne to attend a Montessori school, where every pupil is treated as an individual”.
  2. 2. To stay hidden from Hitler’s vicious rule and evil ways, the Frank family and others, hid in a special part of their house called the Secret Annex.
  3. 3. Miep Gies was a lady who was concerned of the Franks needs and hid them in an area of an apartment called the secret annex. She was a Dutch citizen who was sent to live in The Netherlands by her parents, because she could recover from tuberculosis and malnutrition. She enjoyed The Netherlands so much that she later moved there.
  4. 4. “But even an ordinary secretary or a housewife or a teenager can, within their own small ways, turn on a small light in a dark room.” ― Miep Gies
  5. 5. This picture makes us sad because of the looks on their faces.
  6. 6. BEFORE men loosed these iron gods of strife, Before the stars were from the darkness hurled, I loved you in a flower-lit wonder-world, I loved you, and through you I loved all life; Then fell this dolorous night, unnatural, rife With crimes unnumbered and black flag unfurled: I lost you while the writhing phantoms curled About each dream and slew each with a knife. O when the day breaks and the shadows flee, When life moves out of this red masque of death, And all my soul breaks through her prison bars—Then, my lost love, will you return to me, Or will you sleep, all innocent of breath, Beneath a canopy of alien stars? -Claude Houghton
  7. 7. This poem makes me feel an unexplainable variety of emotions. It is very well-worded and descriptive and adds to the sadness and seriousness of this poem. It provoked haunting images in my mind of the tragedy referred to as the Holocaust. But, it has its moments of sweetness like the my favorite
  8. 8. Shema Primo Levi You who live secure In your warm houses, Who return at evening to find Hot food and friendly faces: Consider whether this is a man, Who labors in the mud Who knows no peace Who fights for a crust of bread Who dies at a yes or a no. Consider whether this is a woman, Without hair or name With no more strength to remember Eyes empty and cold As a frog in winter. Consider that this has been: I commend these words to you. Engrave them on your hearts When you are in your house, when you walk on your way, When you go to bed, when you rise. Repeat them to your children. Or may your house crumble, Disease render you powerless, Your offspring avert their faces from you.
  9. 9. This poem caught my attention by showing to not take life for granted. Many people now-adays believe that their lives are horrible and awful, when in reality they are living a fine and worthy life. It presented an image of the holocaust and how awful it was. Then it made me think of all the great sustainable living conditions all of us are living. “I commend these words to you. Engrave them on your hearts.” That verse stood out tome due to the lack of appreciation people have on their lives. If they only noticed that people had had it way worst and came to realization that their lives
  10. 10. Genocide: the extermination of a nation, race, politi cal, or cultural group. There are many different examples of genocide. Some other genocides in history is when the Europeans arrived to America. They wanted to get rid of the Native Americans due to the lack of space on the European‟s „new found land.‟ They wanted to collect all the natural resources that they could find and all the Native Americans who could have helped them find the resources were killed. Millions of Native Americans died and many tries and customs have been lost forever. Another example of genocide is the Armenian Genocide. While everyone was so distracted in 1915 due to WWI, the Ottoman Empire began capturing the Armenians.
