pdf ↠ Het Achterhuis à Anne Frank

Het AchterhuisDiscovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has become a world classic a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an elouent testament to the human spirit In 1942 with the Nazis occupying Holland a thirteen year old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went I confess to feeling slightly voyeuristic while reading this It was constantly in the back of my mind that this was no ordinary novel or even a true to life account This was someone’s diary Every page written in confidence each word revealing the thoughts closest to the heart of this young girl As a journal keeper myself I sometimes find myself wondering “What if someone else were to read this?” which causes me to wonder how much to filter my words But then isn’t the purpose of a diary or journal just the opposite? To record one’s honest and unfiltered thoughts? While reading Anne Frank – The Diary of a Young Girl I do not get the sense that there is any such ‘filtering’ going on From the ages of 12 15 Anne lived an extraordinary life and uickly grew far beyond her years in her understanding and handling of a horrendous situationThere are surprises in this book No matter how broad or limited your understanding of the world events that threw Anne and her family into a life in hiding I had – before reading this – held the general assumption that “Well it was wartime They were in hiding for their lives They must have been miserable all the time Who could possibly find anything good or redeeming in the confines of such a life?” In hindsight of course I have had to reconsider I found bits of beauty kindness and even humour popping up in the most unexpected places And why shouldn’t I? Aren’t our lives much the same? Oh – we’re not dodging bombs and trying to sleep to the sound of gunfire at least not in Canada But we each of us are often faced with some sort of tragedy or travesty Sometimes we may have an entire ‘bad year’ or longer And yet doesn’t the buoyancy of the human spirit always shine through? It is really tough work to be miserable 24 hours a day No matter how difficult or challenged our day to day life we all have those little pockets of joy that arise and sometimes it is those tiny occurrences that make the rest of it bearableOn a personal level I found myself comparing Anne’s childhood to that of my parents After all she was only a year younger than my Mom and Dad I think back to stories they’ve told from their teen years and it boggles the mind to think that at the exact moment my Dad and his brothers were tipping a cow Anne was in hiding on the other side of the world At a time when my mother was discovering make up Anne was realizing that life would never again be so youthful so joyous and carefree as before the war A generation was losing its innocence but in very different waysI would recommend Anne Frank – The Diary of a Young Girl to absolutely everyone for I believe that it holds some truth or enlightenment for everyone I do not own this copy – it was borrowed from my daughter’s school library She will be reading it next She is 10 And you can bet that before long I will purchase my own copy for I will be reading it again someday soon

Anne Frank à Het Achterhuis pdf

Into hiding For the next two years until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo the Franks and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annexe” of an old office building Cut off from the outside world they faced hunger boredom the constant cruelties of living in confined uarters and the ever present threat of discovery and If only Anne Frank's diary was the figment of someone's imagination If it meant that this spirited intelligent and articulate girl hadn't died along with so many others in Belsen concentration camp and that the holocaust had never happened that would be a wonderful thing but it did happen and that makes the reading of this diary even heartbreakingFor a 13 year old girl Anne was so articulate the way she expresses her thoughts and feelings about herself and others is remarkable She's able to analyse herself in a particularly honest way her abilities failures weaknessesAs Jews in Nazi occupied Holland Anne and her parents and sister Margot had to flee their home in Amsterdam to escape capture From 1942 1944 they occupy rooms in an old office building which they call 'The Secret Annexe' Anne's diary details daily life within the confines of their safe house They share the rooms with another couple and their teenage son and also with a former dentist As can be expected there were many disagreements living in such close proximity to others and even within their own families Just a few of the office staff knew about The Secret Annexe and these are the people who kept them supplied with food but given the fact that everything was rationed due to the war things became a bit fraught at times The alternative however didn't bear thinking aboutIn August 1944 Anne's diary suddenly becomes silent No words will be written in its pages Someone had betrayed them to the Nazis and they were arrested and transported to various concentration camps The diary was left behind and was found by the office cleaner After being interned in two concentration camps Anne and her sister Margot were finally sent to Bergen Belsen where they both died Anne was just 15 years old Only Otto Frank the girls' father survived and the diary was returned to himThis is one of those books where a silence descends on finishing it How do you write a review? How do you do it justice? I honestly don't know All I can think is what a great contribution Anne would have made to an ugly world if she'd lived her ambition was to be a writer and yet even in death she HAS made a contribution by allowing us to share those two years in hiding with her and giving us a chance to see what a beautiful soul she was Feel so sad right now
