Anne Frank, unusual hero :)

Discussion in 'General Discussions' started by autumn oddity, Sep 8, 2014.

  1. post, what you like/admire about her.


    For me, I love her hope, her positivity.... its one thing to be happy slappy when things are going okay
    but she knew she was going to die and saw death regularly...

    I often,esp now, wonder how she was able, well it seems she didn't harbour I'll will or hate

    toward the Nazi soldiers...


    From her diary's excerpts, it didn't make it plain she believed in Jesus Christ..god yes but not Him specifically, she just amazes me :)

    “I feel wicked sleeping in a warm bed, while my dearest friends have been knocked down or have fallen into a gutter somewhere out in the cold night. I get frightened when I think of close friends who have now been delivered into the hands of the cruelest brutes that walk the earth. And all because they are Jews!”

    “I can shake off everything if I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. But, and that is the greatest question, will I ever be able to write anything great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, for I can recapture everything when I write, my thoughts, my ideas and my fantasies.”
    ― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

    “It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because inspite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will distroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if i look up into the heavans, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again. In the mean time, I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the day will come when I shall be able to carry them out." ~Anne Frank”

  3. These are the quotes I really like by her, and I found,through her quotes, it seems she really did trust in God.
     
    Where is the Messiah and KingJ say Amen and like this.
  4. I went to that house last year. So very touching and to think she died just months from the war's end.

  5. They estimate it was three weeks before the British freed the camp.
     
  6. She did know God and will be in heaven because she was a child. Her experience is a crystal clear reminder of why there is a hell waiting for some people.
     
    God is Love and autumn oddity say Amen and like this.

  7. yes, one quote she said she just looked up in the sky and trusted God... amazing.
     

  8. what touched you specifically?
     
  9. I thought it was weeks, but I couldn't remember... thanks :)
     
  10. A simple life, a simple family, a simple house, a simple girl, and unimaginable horror of events. :( I've always studied wars, but that was the first landmark I have ever visited.

    Last Spring we went to London and visited Churchill's bunkers.
     
  11. Read the book years ago. Thank you for the quotations. :)
