Today in technology we read the story of Anne Frank with Mr. Jump. Anne’s dream was to become an author and have her stories read by others around the world. Her dream came true but only after she died at the hands of the Nazis in a concentration camp called Bergen-Belsen in Germany during World War II.
Anne kept a diary that she called “Kitty” and documented the time she spent in hiding with her family and another family and a dentist while living in Amsterdam, where they fled to for safety from the Nazis. But the Nazi German army took over the Netherlands shortly after they got to Amsterdam. They were hiding because it was dangerous for Jewish people to walk freely in the Netherlands since the Germans were sending them to be exterminated from all parts of Europe. This was called the Holocaust.
Adolf Hitler rose to power in 1933 and promised to make Germany great again. Hitler needed a scapegoat to be the cause of all of Germany’s economic and social problems and he chose Jewish people. We can not let this happen ever again. Since the end of WWII, other genocides have occurred around the world and some even before WWII.
We can not allow any more scapegoating, especially in the United States of America. How can we prevent another Holocaust from happening again?
