These "Annex” people could live with hope by remembering all of the good times.
they had together, before they had to go into hiding. They had hope because they knew .
one day this would all have to end. Although the "Annex” people were probably stronger .
than most other people would be, this is because some people just can't live knowing that .
there can be some people in the world who have such hatred in them, that they would just .
want to see you die! The families of Mr. and Mrs. Frank and Mr. and Mrs. Van Daan did .
this by staying together as a family and of all the things going on outside, still being able to .
be happy and have some fun in the Annex. It was a very hard accomplishment for them, .
but they did it for their family. Mr. and Mrs. Frank had to be strong to show Anne and .
Margot that they still had faith and hope. This was as well for Mr. and Mrs. Van Daan .
and for Peter. After all they've gone through, they weren't about to give up just right .
These two families were very faithful. They strongly believed in their Jewish .
religion. This is another main reason they still had hope. They believed in God and knew .
that he was watching over them, and he would take care of them. As each day went by, .
the families hope grew, they knew that they were one day stronger and they survived one .
more day. They thanked God for this. These families found out the true meaning of life, .
how precious life was. With all of the violence outside and the people dying it was hard .
for them to have hope. Yes they were afraid, who wouldn't be. These Germans were .
waiting to kill them. If someone was waiting to kill you, you would be terrified! This was .
the way they felt, and above all this they still had hope! .
The two families of "Annex” people can still live with hope, because the world has.
some peace inside of it. They see the world as a beautiful place that is unfortunately .
being shattered in the wrong way with the Germans.
