Reader Het Achterhuis
Book ☆ Het Achterhuis É 283 pages · Hannahredhead ↠ Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an elouent testament to the human spirit In 1942 with the Nazis occupying HollaDeath In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period By turns thoughtful moving and surprisingly humorous her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short back cover Maybe the first thing that most people would get shocked is that I rate with only 3 stars one of the best selling books of the 20th century and now 21st century too and even a book about the HolocaustFirst thing that I learned about this book is honestyAnne Frank teaches us all about honesty about telling what you really think and so I am doing the sameFor starters I wonder how many people really I mean REALLY read the book because to rate with 5 stars a famous book that everybody tells you that it's a book that all people should read and then they got in this commnunity for readers and maybe they feel the compromise to make the rest to think that you really read the bookIf not the case hey I don't see why anyone can be offended by this comment and it's true I don't see either anyone who will complain since to me it would be only a defense mechanism behind their own guilt of really not reading the book but making the rest that they did I didn't think about this scenario but commenting about other thing with a reader friend that thought stuck in my mindI invested so much time in that because one has to be honest the book is tedious since it's not really a novel it's a collection of diary writings without a coherent line of constructing a story even you need editors' further notes to know what happened to the people in the Secret Annex since obviously Anne was unable to tell the final eventsSo since it's so tedious I wouldn't be surprised that some reader tried to read it but at the end they just rated with 5 stars to denote that they are cultured readers that they appreciate the book as one of the most important books of the 20th centuryBetween the passages you learn a lot of things The first thing that surprised me it's how this diary collection that it was written in the 40's in Holland by a teenage girl almost anybody can relate to the comments and you don't feel them as outdatedSometimes if you read an old book you sensed the outdated of the prose selection of words etc but here I didn't feel it This diary could be easily being written in present time and I don't think that it would change at all I think that it was one of its strengths since I am sure that it will be as relevant for many timeOther thing that surprised me a lot was how much Anne Frank and by association the rest of the group in the Secret Annex were informed about the events in the war I know they had a radio but from stuff that I had read about WWII there were certain elements of the information that people weren't awareI mean at many moments they denote a certainty that Jewish people were murdered in the extermination camps of course if you call them extermination camps of course you know that people got killed there but that's a term used by me now they called them labor camps and so far I read Jewish people really thought that they will receive baths when they were really gassed or burned to death and it's kinda logical thing since if they were so certained about their deaths there would be riots on the ghettos to flee in mass and they wouldn't march without protest to the gas chambers and the ovens Even Allied forces used espionage methods to know from Nazi prisoners what was happening to the Jewish people on the campsAnyway also there are elements like the assasination attempt to Hitler that they were aware that it was made by their own generals I don't think that kind of stuff would be informed so easily since it was a clear fact of how divided was the opinions of the high ranking staff of the Third ReichI am not saying that the diary is not authentic as some dumb people commented that the Holocaust didn't happenThe Holocaust happenedIt was real and we never forget that to avoid that it would happen again I am just commenting that surprised me how well they were informed about key sensitive info of war events taking in account that they were a bunch of people living hidden for like 3 years in an isolated annex of a building I know they got visits by the people that helped them but even so I am not uestioning its authenticity just expressing my surprise when I read it There were other things here and there that I was surprised by the use of terms like diet low fat geez I didn't know that in the 1940's they used terms like that in the 1980's were like the rush of healthy food but again I supposed it's the effect that stuff that we think are new they are just recycled and labeled as newI am amazed that this book is banned in some schools okay there are comments relating to sex and sexual preferences but so what? If a teenage girl from the 1940's can think about stuff like that while she was isolated with a war outside don't you think that teenagers of today can think just the same? I think that books like this one can help them to know that they are not alone that they are not weird for thinking things like that that was normal in the 1940s and it's normal now tooI was amazed that the group tried to live normal I mean kids making school work and so I think that in such extraordinary circumstances they needed to do extraordinary things like to make circles and to talk in group and hearing all about topics I mean they were like trapped and living together really too close in the sense of physical space and yet nobody cares about what Anne thinks or what she has to offer? Geez Sure they need to be really still and in silence usually at day but they should like making a tribe I don't know I am babbling but to try to live like regular families was evidently wrong for the sanity of their interrelationshipsWhat didn't surprised me were behaviors like trying to hide food or keeping money from the group In times where the group work were essential to survive the human selfishness risen as a second natureResumming I just want to explain that my rating is based on my entertaining experience while reading the book and the format of the book itselfAnd this didn't have to do with my respect for the subject of the Holocaust and its terrible events

Into hiding For the next two years until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo the Franks and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annexe” of an old office building Cut off from the outside world they faced hunger boredom the constant cruelties of living in confined uarters and the ever present threat of discovery and If only Anne Frank's diary was the figment of someone's imagination If it meant that this spirited intelligent and articulate girl hadn't died along with so many others in Belsen concentration camp and that the holocaust had never happened that would be a wonderful thing but it did happen and that makes the reading of this diary even heartbreakingFor a 13 year old girl Anne was so articulate the way she expresses her thoughts and feelings about herself and others is remarkable She's able to analyse herself in a particularly honest way her abilities failures weaknessesAs Jews in Nazi occupied Holland Anne and her parents and sister Margot had to flee their home in Amsterdam to escape capture From 1942 1944 they occupy rooms in an old office building which they call 'The Secret Annexe' Anne's diary details daily life within the confines of their safe house They share the rooms with another couple and their teenage son and also with a former dentist As can be expected there were many disagreements living in such close proximity to others and even within their own families Just a few of the office staff knew about The Secret Annexe and these are the people who kept them supplied with food but given the fact that everything was rationed due to the war things became a bit fraught at times The alternative however didn't bear thinking aboutIn August 1944 Anne's diary suddenly becomes silent No words will be written in its pages Someone had betrayed them to the Nazis and they were arrested and transported to various concentration camps The diary was left behind and was found by the office cleaner After being interned in two concentration camps Anne and her sister Margot were finally sent to Bergen Belsen where they both died Anne was just 15 years old Only Otto Frank the girls' father survived and the diary was returned to himThis is one of those books where a silence descends on finishing it How do you write a review? How do you do it justice? I honestly don't know All I can think is what a great contribution Anne would have made to an ugly world if she'd lived her ambition was to be a writer and yet even in death she HAS made a contribution by allowing us to share those two years in hiding with her and giving us a chance to see what a beautiful soul she was Feel so sad right now
