The Diary of Anne Frank

Post by Adnama » Sun Dec 15, 2002 6:29 pm

Why must i always put homework off untill the last min?



For english we have to do a report type thing on the Diary of Anne Frank, its due tomorrow [and i havent even read it yet! Thank God for sparknotes o.o], i think i have the report its self covered, but we also need pictures around the border. I cant think of much. I figure a nazi flag and a diaryish-looking book, but i need more then that. If anyone has any ideas please let me know! Thanks!

did you know in modern day germany it is illegal to draw a Swastica.


Yes I did know that...After WorldWar II, Germany couldn't wait to show off to the entire world how much they'd reformed.

We had to do a project on a play on that. Then everyone kept on calling her a hero. Yes, it's sad she died and it's wonderful she wrote the diary, but she's not a hero. She wasn't any braver than any other person involved in the Holicaust, the only thing that sets her apart is that they found her diary.



But I digress.



-A kitten, because she found that kitten once and wanted to keep it.

-Broken glass, for The Night of Broken Glass and whatever it was in German.. Krystalnacht?

-A boarded-up window, since all the windows were boarded up and the Annex looked all abandoned.

-A bookcase, because they were hidden in the annex behind the door hidden by the bookcase.

-An attic window looking out to a tree outside, I think she once wrote about seeing that tree and longing to be outside.

-An old radio, because they used to sneak out, gather around and listen to the radio at night.



Hm, that's all I can think of for now, I haven't read it in a while. Actually, I don't think I actually ever read the entire book. Just the play they had in our English book.
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace."

The most accurate portrayal I've seen is usage as a Peace symbol in Finland. Twas' blue.

When I hear somebody sigh that Life is hard, I am always tempted to ask, Compared to what?

If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.


You see things; and you say Why? But I dream things that never were; and I say Why not?

It is a hard matter, my fellow citizens, to argue with the belly, since it has no ears.

one of these days u should read it just for yourself... it can get really boring but at the end it's worth it. it's the only book that's ever made me cry and boy was i bawling! i cried myself to sleep the night i finished it. maybe it's becuz i have Jewish family that was killed, but even if i didn't i still think it's a good book.

yeah i read number the stars. ive read a lot of WW2 books, i really recommend "alicia" becuz it's nonfiction and it's nonstop action.
