Anne Frank Portfolio Ailen Enriquez - Period 5

Exploring Amsterdam

The Anne Frank House

Anne Frank and he family moved into the house (located in Amsterdam) in 1933, where Otto started a small business for a gelling substance used in jam. They used the attic (aka The Secret Annex) to hide from the Nazis later on in 1942. They were later on joined by another Jewish family, as well as a Jewish dentist named Fritz Pfeffer. They were all unfortunately found by the Nazis in 1944, but the house is still standing and open as a tourist attraction.

The Nuremberg Law was a list of Anti-Jewish laws. They became official laws in 1935, announced in Nuremberg. These laws were created by Adolph Hitler to separate German and Jewish people. The image above is a chart of what counts and doesn't count as being German. It was made in the format of a family tree—the white represents German blood, while the black represents Jewish blood.


Propaganda is misleading or biased information that is used to promote a certain person's point of view. Propaganda can be used in social media, television, conventions/rallies, etc. In World War 2, Hitler used a lot of propaganda in the media to convince aryali Germans that Jews were evil. In World War 2, America used propaganda to encourage soldiers, nurses, women, etc. to be active during the war. There are various types of propaganda, such as demonization, which is where a piece makes a certain group or opinion look evil, half-truths or lies, which tends to bend the truth, emotional appeal, and patriotic appeal. Emotional appeal uses emotional themes (that may be relatable to an audience), while patriotic appeal uses a country's pride to influence an audience.

Otto Frank

Otto Frank was a German-born Swiss businessman, and Anne Frank's father. Born on May 12, 1889, Otto helped the family ( as well as the van Pels and Fritz Pfeffer ) hide in a secret compartment that was in his business. Anne never wrote anything negative about him in her diary. When they were found, Otto was the only person who survived. He died at age 91 due to lung cancer on August 19, 1980.

Edith Frank

Edith Frank (her maiden name is Edith Holländer) was Otto Frank's wife and Anee Frank's daughter. Born on January 16, 1900, it is unknown what her job was. Anne didn't get along with her mother as well as she did with her father, and wrote negative things about her in her diary. She was sent to Auschwitz when they were found; she died at the age of 44 (ten days before her birthday) due to starvation on January 6, 1945.

Miep Gies

Miep Gies, or Hermine Santruschitz, was one of the persons who helped people, including the Frank family, hide in the Secret Annex. Born on February 15, 1909

Peter van Pels

Act I Summary

After Otto Frank returns to the Annex's aftermath, Miep gives Anne's diary to him, allowing the previous events to be recounted. The story begins with the Franks and the van Daan hiding in the Secret Annex. Anne starts off as a very childish girl. When they move in, she doesn't like Peter very much because of his quiet behavior, while Peter doesn't like her constant nagging. As the story progresses and we learn more about the characters, such as Mr. and Mrs. van Daan's constant bickering and Anne's sour relationship with her mother, Mr. Dussel, a dentist that Anne isn't fond of is introduced. Eventually, they celebrate Hanukkah, where they are interrupted by a burglar that scares that group. The act ends with them singing a Hanukkah song in chorus.
