Biography of Anne Frank

Exploring the Setting

The Secret Annex

The secret Annex was a place the Franks went into hiding during the holocaust. Anne spent most of her time writing in her diary about the Secret Annex and how she felt. There were 4 total people living in the secret annex at that time. It was located along the Prinsengracht Canal and is now a museum in Amsterdam. You got into the secret annex by moving a bookshelf that led to stairs up into the annex.

This picture shows the entrance to the secret annex, it is behind a bookshelf and it leads to the secret set of stairs of the annex.

The Westerkerk Church

The Westerkerk was a church located close to the Franks secret annex. It was built between 1620 and 1631. Anne Frank wrote in her diary about this church, she liked to hear the bells chiming from the church. From the window of the Sevret Annex you could see the clock faced part of the church.

The Westerkerk church attracts many people to see it and how important it was to history.

Nuremberg Law

This chart showed the Nazis who had Jewish genes.

1. Marriage between Jews and subjects of the state of German or related blood are forbidden. Marriages nevertheless concluded are invalid, even if concluded abroad to circumvent the law. Annulment proceedings can be initiated only by the State Prosecutor.

2. Extramarital intercourse between Jews and subjects of the state of German or related blood is forbidden.

3. Jews may not employ in their household female subjects of the state of German o related blood who are under 45 years old.

4. Jews are forbidden to fly the Reich or National flag or to display the Reich colors. They are, on the other hand, permitted to display the Jewish colors. The exercise of this right is protected by the State.

5. Any person who violates the prohibition under I will be punished by a prison sentence with hard labor. A male who violates the prohibition under I will be punished with a prison sentence with or without hard labor. Any person violating the provisions under III or IV will be punished with a prison sentence of up to one year and a fine, or with one or the other of these penalties. The Reich Minister of the Interior, in coordination with the Deputy of the Führer and the Reich Minister of Justice, will issue the Legal and Administrative regulations required to implement and complete the Law. 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.

This law is important to learn because it shows us how the Nazis treated the Jewish. This law wants the Jewish to be separated from the Germans. The leader of this group wanted them to be different and separated from them. He like pure blood and I don't think that he should of treated the Jewish in a different just because of their family genes. I think it's important to learn about this because it shows us that everybody should be treated the same.
