Exploring the Setting

The Secret Annex

The secret annex was located above the fathers bakery. Here, Anne and her family lived in two rooms and a kitchen. They were scared of being caught so much, that they had to flush the toilet only at night to avoid being caught.

The Westerkerk Church

The Westerkerk Church is the oldest church in the city of Amsterdam. This church was built in the 1600's by a Dutch Protestant Group. Here, Anne would listen to the bells ring and this would be her one and only sense of time

The Nuremburg Laws

This chat would determine if you are a Jew and would be prosecuted as one.

The Law takes effect on the day following promulgations except for III, which goes into force on January 1, 1936. Nuremberg, September 15, 1935 at the Reich Party Congress of Freedom.

The Nuremburg Laws were the first step in trying to get rid of the Jews. These laws prohibited Jews from doing basic rights such as marriage. Nerumberg laws in my opinion were horrible and were not right. The laws were not fair and were made to just point out Jews. Jews could not wear German colors so that it would make them stand out.


Propoganda is making people believe something that is not completely true or not true at all. Although propoganda is usually to demoralize people, some propognada I to encourage people. One example of this is patriotic propoganda, which the country uses flashy powers to make the citizens help in the war effort. Propoganda can be name calling, where people use derogatory terms to call people things, half true or lies, which half of the statement being made is true, but not completely true. Other type of propaganda is emotional appeal, which makes you feel a certain way depending on the picture, and catchy slogans. Catchy slogans are used all the time in order for things to stick in people's head.
