Diary of Anne Frank- Summary

Matthew 24:9  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, as the second child of Otto and Edith Frank.  Anne’s sister, Margot Betti, was three years older. The Franks were a middle-class, liberal Jewish family whose ancestors had lived in Germany for centuries.  The Franks considered Germany their home; thus it was a very difficult decision for them to leave Germany in 1933 and start a new life in the Netherlands, away from the anti-Semitism of the newly empowered Nazis. … The persecution of Jews in Netherlands was very similar to the early persecution of the Jews in Germany.  The Franks could foresee that, just like it had for the Jews in Germany, death and deportation were coming soon to Jews in the Netherlands.  The Franks realized they needed to find a way to escape.  Unable to leave from the Netherlands because the borders were closed, the Franks decided the only way to escape the Nazis was to go into hiding.  So the Franks began organizing a hiding place. For Anne’s 13th birthday (June 12, 1942), she received a red-and-white-checkered autograph album that she decided to use as a diary.  Until she went into hiding, Anne wrote in her diary about everyday life such as her friends, grades she received at school, even about playing ping pong. Anne continued writing her diary until August 1, 1944.  Much of the diary is about the cramped and stifling living conditions as well as the personality conflicts between the eight that lived together in hiding.  Also among the two years and one month that Anne lived in the Secret Annex, she wrote about her fears, her hopes, and her character.  She felt misunderstood by those around her and was constantly trying to better herself. Anne wrote of the horror of what she experienced each day and how she felt. One quote from her diary tells of how her fears were beginning to take control of the situation in which she and the others found themselves. Anne Frank wrote about the evil and cruelty which the Jews had to endure at the hands of the Germans: merciless killings and torture in an attempt to eliminate the entire race.  But rest assured the Jews will never be completely destroyed.  The nation of Israel will once again be a “Nation” of God’s people.  Let us pray for the peace and protection of Jerusalem (Psalm122:6).  Never again will there be such slaughtering of the Jews.
