Anne Frank lived in the Secret Annex of her father's company for 2 years. She went inside hiding there at age 13 and was betrayed by a family member and came out at age 15. Anne wrote in her diary everyday and she usually looked out at the oak tree right next to her family's tinted window.

The Nuremberg Law is about how the Germans were able to tell people apart. I feel that these laws were unfair to the Jewish people, because they did nothing wrong, to me, was like slaughtering them. What Hitler did was wrong to erase generations of Jewish people that could have made a difference to the world. He even made Jewish love wrong to not allow the Jewish people to marry who they want. They were not even allowed to show any signs of religion to the public. Before their deaths, stamping them on their arm like sheep going to be killed and not hearing any sadness to the people screaming in the oven rooms.
Propaganda is misleading information that is used to promote or publicize politics and other things. Propaganda can be used for politics, school clubs, and in history Hitler used this. It is used for a person to get more people for their clubs so they can gain more popularity. Politics has propaganda so a elected person could get the majority vote and become president. Hitler used propaganda to build an army to kill the Jews.
Margot was Anne's older sister by 3 years. She was a quiet, serious girl. Her favorite thing to do was to study. She too, kept a diary, but it was never found. Anne wrote that Margot wanted to become a maternity nurse. She never became a maternity nurse because she died in a connotation camp with high yellow fever, just like her sister, she too suffered the same fate.
Anne Frank was the opposite of Margot. She was like the clown in the annex. She always brought the laughable moments. But, she also has a serious side to her. She shows more of her personality in her diary. After the war, she wanted to become an author. Her dream didn't come true when she was alive, but it did when she died. All thanks to her father.
Peter Van Pels
Peter was born an only child. He was a stubborn one too. He had a lot of odd jobs during his stay in the annex. He chopped wood, carried up vegetables and potatoes from downstairs, cleaned the attic, took care of the cats and even washed his own overalls. Unfortunately, nobody knows what he wanted to do after the war. He sadly died in Auschwitz due to a march through the town and died of exhaustion and starvation.
When the families went into the Secret Annex, all eyes were focused on Otto because they viewed him as the leader in the Annex. And he was. He was also the teacher for his daughters. He was always calm and even in the difficult situations, he planned it out and stayed calm and intelligent too. After the war, he went back into the Annex and found Anne's diary. He focused on publishing it because he thought what Anne wrote was important and what people needed to hear.

Margot is becomes a quiet person and is always doing her studies. The Van Daan's always bicker against each other, but Peter is stubborn and always in his room with Mouschi.

On Hanukkah night, they have their feast and are happy. Anne gives each character presents she finds around the house, and they sing the Hanukkah song. They start to sing when a thief breaks in and steals a cash box and a radio. The families were thankfully alive.
