Anne Frank – The pain and optimism of humans!

Anne Frank Diary

Anne Frank’s Diary – As the name implies, this is the diary of the little Anne Frank – who is forever likened to a Jewish angel. Having to live in a secret outhouse with her family, hiding from Hitler’s clutches, little Anne poured out her thoughts, daily stories where she lived, cherished the diary like an intimate friend.

“Anne Frank Diary” is not only the pages of a mere 14-year-old girl, but it is filled with authentic historical values, human personality and beliefs that sparkle like candles in the night.

“Writing in a diary is a really strange experience for someone like me. Not only because I’ve never written anything before, but also because it seems to me that later on neither I nor anyone else will be interested in the musings of a thirteen-year old school girl. Oh well, it doesn’t matter. I feel like writing”.

How endurance the charity of Anne Frank!

A budding, passionate young woman aged 13, 14 years old, with countless fans like Anne, would one day be dumbfounded and frightened behind the silent walls of the Annex. Unpredictable adversity challenges Anne’s life-filled heart, fortunately, she still has a ‘friend’ to talk to – is the diary named beautiful Kitty.

Cherished by Anne as a dear friend, the diary is filled with ambitions, beliefs, disappointments and flickering joys of its owner. Each page and slender handwriting marked the turning point of Anne’s psychological transformation over time. From an impulsive stubborn child to a real adult with a strange sharp head compared to her 14 years old after only two years in the Annex. Her human philosophies self-conceived and conceived herself, her sarcastic and sincere judgments about her family members, and most of all, her beliefs and kind hearts all strengthened through the troubles.

The constant worrying of the heart, the sulking of her body, the nightmares of several nights and, above all, the overwhelming hatred towards the Germans, all forged Anne a lofty, aspirational heart and burning optimism.

“As long as this exists, this sunshine and this cloudless sky, and as long as I can enjoy it, how can I be sad?”

The strip of nightmares embrace humanity

Nazi Germany – Jews worldly nightmare. Just by reading through Anne Frank’s diary, the sight of innocent Jews with droopy shoulders and chains of siege suddenly came to mind. These chains bind not only the body but also the soul.

Thrown into death camps, collapsed in gas chambers and horrifying experiments by the Germans. Children separated from their parents, dormant bodies in the foreign land, and blood and flesh spilled with pebbles – is that how humans treat each other!

A people sensible and proud with their transcendent brains – now hunted like sheep under the clutches and barrel of a fascist’s hunting rifle and suffers great pain. All because they are Jews!

“Who has made us Jews different from all other people? Who has allowed us to suffer so terribly up until now? It is God who has made us as we are, but it will be God, too, who will raise us up again. Who knows? It might even be our religion from which the world and all peoples learn good, and for that reason and only that reason do we suffer. We can never become just Netherlanders, or just English or representatives of any country for that matter. We will always remain Jews, but we want to, too.” 

But not the joy is dead …

Despite adversity, but hope and laughter never cease. The people who provided for the Frank family were like messengers of the smile. They do not manage fatigue, do not manage the time and do not hesitate to let the Lord of Death stalk each minute, they still try to save their own lives. Short moments of conversation, bright gazes when potato bushes are gradually filled and quiet lessons all continue in the out-house area, still resilient every day. again the fear of the soul that was covering the land of Germany.

In it, through Anne’s fleeting accounts, somewhere there were honest people who were willing to protect fleeing Jewish families, defending the German soldiers – demons in human guise!

“It’s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.”
