The Girl in Hiding
By Erin Horner
1 "Anne, we must go now! Grab your treasures; take only the things you can't bear to leave behind. We're not safe here anymore." Anne Frank heard those words from her father one day in the summer of 1942. The Franks were a Jewish family. They were living in Amsterdam, trying to avoid Hitler and his horrible army. Hitler hated all Jews. He told lies about them. He sent them to prison camps and made them work very hard. Many Jewish people died. It was a sad and scary time.
2 Anne's family had already moved once. They had moved from Germany to the Netherlands to avoid Hitler and his regime. Now they were being forced to move once more. This time they wouldn't leave the country, but they would leave the life they had known. They were moving to a secret annex. Mr. Frank had prepared a small hiding place for his family in the building where he worked.
3 Living in hiding was very hard! People worked in the office building during the day, so Anne and her family could not make any noise. They had to remain very still. They could not flush the toilet. They could only talk in hushed whispers. While Anne was not allowed to talk much during the day, she could write all day long. That is exactly what she did. Anne kept a diary of her time in hiding. She wrote about her hopes, fears, and dreams.
