Two Families Who Never Lost Hope During the Holocaust

             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.
