Anne Frank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6502 words)
The diary was given to Anne Frank for her thirteenth birthday and chronicles the events of her life from June 12, 1942 until its final entry of August 1, 1944.
Margot and Anne were excelling in their studies and had a large number of friends, but with the introduction of a decree that Jewish children could only attend Jewish schools, they were enrolled at the Jewish Lyceum.
Otto Frank insisted that the aim of the foundation would be to foster contact and communication between young people of different cultures, religions or racial backgrounds, and to oppose intolerance and racial discrimination.
Anne Frank (1544 words)
Frank's diary is at once a candid self-portrait, a portrayal of domestic life, an account of people threatened with imminent death, a depiction of experiences and problems common to young adults, and an examination of universal moral issues.
The early childhood of Frank and her elder sister, Margot, was secure, loving, and comfortable, but the year of Anne's birth also marked the onset of a worldwide economic depression, a catastrophic event that affected the lives of a great number of Europeans.
Because Frank's diary was not written as creative literature, and because of the extraordinary circumstances of the author's life, critics most commonly discuss the human and historical importance of the work rather than its aesthetic or structural elements.
