Anne Frank was a normal Jewish girl who unfortunately happened to live during WWII. For Anne’s 11th birthday she received a red and white checked diary. While she was hiding from the nazis, she wrote all about her life. Anne went into hiding in July 1942, after her older sister Margot received a letter ordering her to a work camp. Anne’s family hid in the Annex for over 2 years and were later joined by various other people. In 1944, everyone was found and sent to a concentration camp. In February 1945, Anne died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
The Anne Frank Trust is a charity that works to protect our world from prejudice and discrimination. Anne Frank was discriminated against for being Jewish. People suffer from prejudice and discrimination for lots of different reasons. It can be because of how they look, what they do or what they believe. By running educational programs, they give children insight into the harm that prejudice and discrimination can cause.
To mark my Bat Mitzvah, I would like to help this trust do their work. I am asking you to help me by donating to the Anne Frank Trust.
Thank you. Maya D. Tammam
