Later Anne Frank dies with her sister of typhus. Otto her dad, the only survivor comes back and publishes her diary.
The reason I chose to read about Anne Frank was because I heard it was a great book. I saw a play of Anne Frank and really enjoyed it. The play was very interesting and it made me want to learn more about her. I wanted to learn more about the holocaust and Anne Frank. I expected the book to be about her life since the book is her diary. I also expected it to talk about how life was and the requirements under the rule of the Germans. When the Germans took control all the rules were changed like Jews weren’t allowed to have shops of their own. They were also required to wear a yellow star everywhere they went. After reading her diary, it had every one of my expectations. It was a great and very interesting book.
