  • Resolution

    In the last several diary entries, Anne goes back to her self-reflection. It was a very tough time.

  • Character Sketches

    Though Anne wrote the diary from her perspective, she had a talent for sketching the people she lived within resounding detail.

  • Daily Life in Hiding from the Nazis

    Anne Frank was a teenage girl during the Holocaust who went into hiding with her family for 2 years.
