Anne Frank WebQuest
"I still believe in
spite of everything that people are really good at heart." Anne Frank
Frank was a young girl whose life comes alive when reading her story, The Dairy of
Anne Frank. People all over the world are able to see what life as a persecuted
Jew was like during World War II; thus gaining an appreciation for the sacrifices people
made in the struggle to stay alive. Anne Frank did not become famous until after her
death in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and after the liberation of all
concentration camps. Otto Frank, the only surviving member of the people hiding in
the Secret Annex, later had Anne's dairy published.
