The Secret Annex
The secret annex was found behind a bookcase, leading up stairs to the place they stayed. It was next door to Otto Frank's office where he worked, and they lived with others besides the Frank family.

After researching the Nuremberg Laws, I learned that they were kind of like the start to the process of Hitler's plan. After the Nuremberg Laws, it was like the people didn't even know what freedom was or felt like. The brutal laws separated the different races, which was exactly what Hitler wanted. People were limited on who they love due to the laws, having no control of even their family. Most of all, the laws pretty much killed all hopes of Gews escaping or surviving, or even living happily.
Propaganda is information that is biased purposely to persuade people to do whatever they want. Also it can be misleading and false, so people will believe it and follow along with the information and facts. One way propaganda was used was with biased info. During the war Hitler put up posters saying if you save 5 marks a week you would get a car, people ended up believing that. Hitler used propaganda to recruit soldiers. He made recruitment posters and hung them all around, making it seem positive and awesome to be in the military, but people fell for signing up for guaranteed death. It was mostly used so one person could get anything they'd want and so one person could have all the power.
