Whaddya mean, how's it goin???
I'm still waitin' for you to transport me to 2017!
So, I'm afraid you are going to have to simply blend in with the people of 1945. Talk about mid-century things with them. Adhere to the culture of the time.
Doesn't sound too difficult to me.
Ya, well I've kinda already tried that 'cause they feel sorry for me. They think I'm wonky not knowing where I live, so they gave me a job helpin' out in the kitchen.
Sooo, I tried to talk about somethin' I learned about World War II, and it came into my brain all sudden-like: Anne Frank's diary!
Ya know, how her and her family were hiding behind the bookcase in Amsterdam and all that stuff.
Annelies Marie "Anne" Frank was born in Frankfurt, Germany on June 12th, 1929.
At the age of almost five, she moved with her family to Amsterdam when the Nazis had control over Germany.
Because of the persecution toward the people of the Jewish faith, the Frank family was forced into hiding after a summons was received telling them to report to a Nazi work camp in Germany.
During the two years that Anne and her family lived in hiding from the Nazis, she wrote detailed entries every day, perhaps out of boredom after having to remain silent during the day.
As well as the Frank family, four other people of the Jewish faith lived with them, the van Pels and Fritz Pfeffer.
Anne's father, Otto Frank, was a business man, and the employees of his company helped everyone hiding in the Secret Annex - they supplied them with food as well as the emotional support so badly needed.
On August 4th, 1944, the Secret Annex was invaded by police officers who proceeded to arrest everyone. They were transferred to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland on September 3rd, 1944, after a three day journey.
When Anne and her sister, Margot, both became ill with typhus, it was the spring of 1945. Both died within one day of the other. At the time of her death, Anne Frank was 15 years old.
This is the cover of Anne Frank's diary. A diary that leaves behind an amazing legacy.
Anne dreamed of becoming a journalist, writing in her diary on Wednesday April 5th, 1944 ...
