Anne Frank's Kind Heart
By Erin Horner
  

1     Anne Frank lived during one of history's most horrific times. She lived in Germany and Amsterdam while Hitler was in power. Anne and her family eventually went into hiding because they feared all that the Nazis were doing to Jewish families like theirs. Sadly, Anne and her family were found. They were arrested and sent to concentration camps. They became prisoners, not because of something they had done, but simply for who they were. Regardless of the horrors around her, Anne Frank remained a kind-hearted and caring young lady. When she was living at Westerbork, a transit camp for Jews, Anne spent many of her evenings visiting a sick young boy in the infirmary. The two spent many hours talking about religion and God.
 
2     When she was later moved to Auschwitz, Anne was given the responsibility of passing out bread to the women who lived in her barrack. Food was scarce and there was normally only one piece of bread and one cup of coffee for every five people. Once, when a friend of Anne's mother, Rosa de Winter, was ill, Anne did the impossible. She obtained an extra cup of coffee just for Rosa. Rosa never forgot this act of kindness.
