Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy (Anne Frank)
Anne Frank was an ordinary teenage girl who, nevertheless, didn't have an ordinary life. Although she was originally from Germany, she was living in Holland when II World War broke out in 1939, as her parents had decided to leave their home country for safety reasons in 1933. In July 1942, they had to go into hiding on the top floor of a building in Amsterdam, where they lived for two years, because things were getting really difficult for Jewish families. The Franks were escaping from the Nazis, who were arresting Jews and taking them to concentration camps to do forced labour or to kill them if they weren't strong enough to put up with the difficult living conditions.
Anne is very honest in her diary and she writes about her feelings all of the time.
In the summer of 1944, not long before the British, the Americans and their allies finally won the war and drove the German army away, her diary suddenly stopped. The Nazis killed Anne Frank, but luckily for everybody, they couldn't kill her memory.
OPTION A. In groups of 5 - 6 people, make a giant version of Anne Frank's diary. This diary will be exhibited and read at school during the III Cultural Week at the end of April.
Take a look at these photos of a "giant diary" 1º ESO students wrote last year while studying what life was like for children in the Victorian period:
OPTION B. In groups of 4 . 5 people, shoot a video in which you interview Anna Frank's dad telling his daughter's story and what life was like in The Secret Annexe.
