    I think it had such an impact on the world because they saw what people went through during the Holocaust. Of course, not to the same extent. No one will ever understand the horror unless they live it. They were living their life in fear, not knowing when they were going to be taken next. Or, what was going to happen to them. They were looked down upon for their beliefs, all because a horrible man blamed them. I also think it had such an impact on me. I take so many things for granted. Like having my own room, having an abundance of clothes, and food. They didn’t, and it was a constant struggle for them to live in the secret Annex.

  2. Anne Frank’s diary has a big impact on the world because it is the only evidence about her that they found and it is how she felt so it was very interesting. In the play they tell about how she is always writing in her diary about how she feels, therefore, we know it is true because that is how you use a diary. I think it had an impact on me because she is a teenage girl just like me and I have no clue how that war was. I feel like I would need to write in a diary if I had no one to talk to either. This is how Anne’s diary had an impact on me and how it has an impact on the world.

    Anne Frank’s diary has had a huge impact on the world. I think it has had such a big impact because it is a personal story of things Anne actually went through herself. It allows people to see what it was like for the average teenager during the holocaust. The things she went through were not easy, and her diary has showed the world what trouble she overcame. Her diary has also had a personal impact on me as well. I can not even imagine what it would have felt like durning the time of War. It would be constant fear. The one thing that had the most impact on me was when Anne said “I belive all people are made of good.” This quote shows she is a brave young girl and I admire her for what she overcame.

  5. Ira Stasi on said:

    Anne Frank’s Diary has had such a huge impact on the world because it shows a personal story of just one of the Jews, who are often forgotten to have personal lives. I believe that the world often forgets about the Jews having personal experiences, because of the fat that over 6 million died. The Diary of Anne Frank has not affected me personally very much. I think that because of the other things that I had learned about the holocaust that Anne’s diary had not affected me very much. Especially because I am a very visual learner, and I have seen some very graphic and gruesome things from the Holocaust.

  6. Josie Ault on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary has had a major impact on the world, including me. Anne’s diary has been a secret peek into what it was really like for Jews hiding in the Holocaust. This world has emotionally been changed by this book because it showed them how horrible it was back then and how great it is now. This book gave the world a sense of hope, a sense of knowing that a girl at a young age could keep her head up in the worst of times. This book had a major impact on me for exactly these reasons. “I believe, deep down, everyone has good in their hearts.” This quote takes my breath away because it shows how forgiving and loving Anne is, even when faced with her life … it also shows how selfish I can be. This book showed me how good I have it being able to play outside and speak, unlike Anne. This book taught many how to be forgiving, to hope, to learn to understand. This Diary had a huge impact on the world because it changed so many people’s perspective on life, for the better.

    Anne Frank’s diary had such a huge impact in the world. I think it had a big impact because it told us a lot about her and what was going on in her world and certain days. We wouldn’t ever know what the war would actually fill like. If it wasn’t for Anne diary that story would probably exist. So to me Anne Frank’s Diary is a huge impact on the world

  8. Rachael Keneipp on said:

    I believe that The Diary of Anne Frank has had such a huge impact on the world because Anne’s diary allowed the world to see life from a different point of view. Anne’s diary not only showed people what it was like to live as a Jew in hiding during World War two, but she allowed people to feel what it was like through her writing, instead of just reading about the war. It wasn’t to the same extent of course, but it was still an open door allowing people to experience the hardships and horrors she was facing. I also felt that the dairy had an impact on me. I found the way the people lived together in the annex quite interesting . I enjoyed the fact that I could see the events from her eyes and also get her opinions of all of the events.

  9. Mallory Barron on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary had a huge impact on the world because it told a true story written by a young girl. The diary was Anne’s version of the war. It told the effect of war, and the impact war had on human beings. Anne described the suffering, and persecution many people went through. Anne Frank’s diary has served as encouragement to some who are also undergoing persecution today. It has impacted me to think that a young girl, probably my age, went through something so horrific. Anne’s freedom was taken away from her.

  10. Anne Frank’s diary had such a big impact on the world because she tells what was really going on. In her diary she tells how things work out day by day and how she felt during her time in the annex. Also, the diary impacted the world because it was one of the little pieces of evidence that shows the horribleness of the Holocaust. I believe that her diary didn’t have that big of an impact on me, as terrible as it sounds, because I don’t know what it feels like to be where she was. I am grateful for the freedom I do have, though.

  11. Hannah Garrett on said:

    I believe Anne Frank’s diary had such a large impact on the world because it gave the world an idea of what the Holocaust must have felt like to those it was originally aimed at. After reading the story, “The Dairy of Anne Frank,” I feel like Anne’s diary has not only had a large impact on the world, but also on myself in a personal manner. It makes me grateful that none of the United States has to go through that, but also sad at the same time because I know there are places in the Middle East and in Africa that are trying to start genocides of their own for selfish and unreasonable purposes, though it may seem perfectly reasonable in the perpetrators’ eyes.

  12. Macy Cato on said:

    Anne’s diary has had an amazingly huge impact on the world. Mostly because it was one of the most descriptive pieces of writing that came from a young Jew in hiding. Anne showed a different perspective to the world. How it was like to be in hiding, and what her daily challenges were. Anne’s diary has had a major impact on my life. I now see what I do have not what I do not. I second think my decisions. How hard it must have been for Anne and how easy it makes us seem like we have it now. Anne changed the world with her Diary. Although I will never feel what she went through on a daily basis, I am grateful for what I have.

  13. Ryan Lockard on said:

    Anne’s diary has such a huge impact on the world because it’s the only book written actually by a Jew in hiding. This book also had a major effect on me. It made me fully realize what these people had to go through. In the book it says you never know what tomorrow is going to bring which is so true. I am so glad I live the life I live.

  14. Lindsay on said:

    Anne’s diary had a huge impact on the world. This is because most people know about the devastation inside the camps, but Anne told a completely different story. Her diary showed people what is was like to go into hiding while the war was going on outside. I think it made an even bigger impact because it was from a teenage girl. It is a lot different than hearing the story told by an adult. Anne’s diary made an impact on me too because I am the same age. I try to imagine what she would of had to go through for such a long time. In times like today, we really take things for granted and reading her diary has kind of made me think about how tough it would have been back then, especially during the Holocaust.

  15. Sydney Stippler on said:

    I think Anne’s diary had a huge impact on the world because it gave them a better understanding of what the victims of the Holocaust went through. Especially because Anne was just 13 years old (at least when she began her diary), I think people were heartbroken when they read what happened to her and her loved ones. I believe her diary also had a huge impact on me because I never really knew how bad the Holocaust was until reading her diary. I learned about it easier because I got to read through the eyes of someone my age. If anyone has not read Anne Frank’s diary, they definitely should because it changes your view on the whole Holocaust.

  16. Cage Street on said:

    Anne Franks diary had a very big impact on the world for many reasons. It shows the world a first hand account of what a person had to do to survive for as long as they could during the holocaust. It also shows what a teenage girl thought about during such hard times. It was a tough time for the world and she showed us what it was like.

  17. Emily Gulledge on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary has had a big impact in the world because it changed the way we look at the Holocaust. People all over the world are now realizing what it was like to be in a Jew’s position at that time and how it effected them. In the text, Anne always wants to start screaming and running around to lighten the mood in the annex, but everyone tells her she can’t do that which effects how she acts. The text also states that she wanted to be outside playing around with her friend, Jopie. That changes how I feel when I think about not being able to smell fresh air or run outside for two years and looking outside to see others doing things she can’t, but still having hope that the war would soon be over and she would be free. I believe her diary had an extraordinary impact in the world in including me.

  18. Johnny Parker on said:

    Anne’s diary has had a huge impact on the world because you can feel what it was like during the war in hiding. Her diary even had a huge impact on me. She wrote it not knowing it would go world wide. The diary brought a tear in my eye just because of the struggle. He diary has to be one of the saddest books i have read. I believe that the diary has had a big impact on the whole world.

  19. Garrett Eich on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary had such a huge impact because… It had an impact yes because it’s a first hand account of the Holocaust, yes it’s an account of a Jew in hiding, but I think it was her pure character inside of her diary that led to her popularity. Her whole meaner in the diary gives everyone interest not only about the Holocaust, but about her personal story. She is unique for having a diary and writing down everything she felt, even in the version we read Mr. Frank told her that she must make her own character. She made it well and her account was completely unique because of it. The other part of the question asks if it impacted me well, it has. I now know exactly her feeling and how horrific the Holocaust was. I also know that it effected the people in it so vastly that it almost drove them insane and many people were. I can’t imagine how it was actually like stuck in that annex for two years.

  20. Madison Meese on said:

    Anne’s diary had a huge impace on the war because it told her thoughts during the war while she was hiding. Her diary told it all, how she felt, what all was going on, what was happening in the annex, Peter, and just about everything else you could imagine. Anne’s diary had an impact on me. She opened my eyes to how lucky I am. I can hang out with my friends and eat as much as my stomach can hold. Anne made me realize how terrible life was for her!

  21. Chris Laszlo on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary had an outstanding impact on the world. The reason, I think, that the diary was so impacting for people all around the world was because most people can relate to Anne’s feelings. They see themselves as Anne and then realize how horrible it must have been to have to go through her teen years locked up in a small home with seven other people. People see themselves in her position and think, “Wow, I don’t think I would have been able to survive as long as Anne did without going insane.” This is also the reason this diary had such a huge impact on me. I think to myself, “This could have been me.” This is why Anne’s diary had such a huge impact on the world.

  22. Katelyn Le on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary had such a big impact on the world because it was word by word on what was going on in her head when she went into hiding. Her diary tells what they had to do day by day and what was going through her mind during her time in the annex. The diary impacted the world because it is probably one of the few true evidence pieces that tells a childs view of how terrible the Holocaust was. Her diary made a huge impact on me. I learned to take life for granted because it could be taken away in a heartbeat like Anne Frank. I am very thankful that I have a roof over my head, family to take care of me, food, and most importantly my freedom.

  23. chad elmore on said:

    Anne’s diary has had a huge impact on the world because it was her story and experiences through the Holocaust. No body really knows what actually happened and she tells the world. It has also had a big impact on me because at that time if I was a christian I would be worrying about the little things and she is trying to survive.

  24. Riley Holzmeyer on said:

    Anne diary has had a huge impact on the whole world. It is also very popular so you know a lot of people know and are interested in Anne. Also it was a Jew writing this so everything that happened she would write in the diary. So we know all that happened to Anne. Also it tells us how herself and everyone else felt during these times. Because someone writing about Anne know wouldn’t know how she felt when they heard the thief in the basement. Also in our book Mrs. Yates said some of the things were changed. So they aren’t always true, but since Anne was there it is very reliable. It also had a impact on myself. Because all of the things I learned were much different from what I have always heard. I didn’t know about the book case that covered the room until we read Anne Frank. It was also more touching. Because she was there and it is just more serious and interesting than reading a random article. Like a writer would put the thief told on the Frank family. But Anne would put the thief told on us today. Mom was crying and everyone else was packing. The other authors would leave out the sentence on how they feel. That makes it less intense and less touching. So Anne being there and actually describing things correctly and in great details makes the story much much better.

    The world is so deeply impacted by Anne Frank’s diary, is because not just that she lived and experienced what happened in the Holocaust, but hid most of it out in an Annex, but because she still had the innocence that most children still have. She is forgiving and believes that the entire situation will sort itself out because people are truely good at heart. Most accounts of the Holocaust are of people who know the evil of the Nazi’s and what they really do, and are hostile in every aspect to them

  26. Megan Centers on said:

    Anne’s diary has made such a huge impact on the world. I believe this is because the story is told through the eyes of a young child. The text states that Anne wrote her feelings in her diary. Because it was a diary, Anne was honest and said things as they were while she was writing. The text also shows that when Anne was forced out of the annex, she was upset to leave her diary. She wanted someone to find it and keep it safe, but instead it was published and the whole world fell in love with it. It is also important because it is a first-hand account of what the victims of the Holocaust had to go through.

  28. Anne’s diary has made a huge impact on this world because it is a personal story about a teenage girl who lived during this tragic time. It is a first hand story to how miserable and terrifying this was. In her diary, it is more like she is talking to us individually and telling us her personal thoughts and feelings. It had made an impact on me to see how someone actually felt back then. Even if you already knew what happened to the Jews during this time, Anne’s diary gives it more meaning and reality. It shows you how she feels and everything she went through during the time of the Holocaust. It has definitely made a large impact on lives all around the world.

  29. Haley Rich on said:

    I think Anne Frank’s diary had such a huge impact on the world and on me because it helps us understand what she had to go through. It is her own diary so it’s personal, and shows how she felt about everything that was going on. She talked about how she thought everyone is good at heart. I like that is from her perspective, because I feel like understand how it would feel to be in the situation better.

  30. Eric Brinker on said:

    Yes, her diary had a huge impact on the world. It told us how she was living while all this tragic Nazi stuff was happening. Some people really care about all of this stuff! I am not at interested with it as much as others, but I can’t say it didn’t have a impact on me.

  31. Danielle Hoover on said:

    Anne’s diary had a huge impact on the world. It had such a big impact because people can relate to Anne’s way of thinking, and there are very few recordings of what a teenager or child thought of the holocaust. It had a impact me because I can relate to her in certain ways. This shows how great of a writer Anne was.

  32. Jonathan Woodward on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary has had a huge impact on the world. It has made one because it shows what people really experienced during the holocaust. Also it showed the emotions and how the family lived for the few years in the Annex. It also tells people what the holocaust really did and what families went through during the time period. It also shows what Anne and her family had to do on a daily basis to survive.

  33. Eli Reeves on said:

    She is the only written source we have on a family that hid during the Holocaust. Her dairy was very special to her, and she didn’t know that she was going to impact the whole world like she did. She is a very good role model and if she lived a normal life the dairy would not have been the same at all, their would not be a war.

  34. alexis barnett on said:

    I think that the Diary of Anne Frank had a huge impact on everyone that read it. I think that because none of us can even begin to image how hard it would be to go through what she had to go through. It made an impact on me because I now know not to take the things I am blessed to have for granted. The Diary of Anne Frank has impacted the lives of mostly everyone who has read it, and it gives us understanding of what people had to go through at that time.

  35. Sydney Rexing on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary has such a huge impact on the world, because it was a firsthand experience account of what people felt like when hiding from the Nazis in the Holocaust. It told people what challenges Anne and her family had to go through on a daily basis. The text states that Anne had a really rough time in hiding in the beginning. The text also states that Anne never knew if she was going to be found that day or not, for me that would be so scary. Yes, Anne’s diary did have a strong personal impact on me as well, because I know I could not have done what she was able to accomplish. This shows that Anne’s diary has a very big impact on the world and will keep making differences and never, ever let this happen again.

    • Aryanna Fellows on said:

      I think that Anne’s diary has had a huge impact on the world. I think it has because it was her own experience from what its like to be in hiding during WWII. Her diary shows her thoughts, and perspective’s on everything that was happening. Anne’s diary did have an impact on me because she made me realize all of the things I take for granted. I know I could never go through what she went through.

  36. Andrew Myers on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary had a huge impact on the world because its the point of view from a young girl and the struggles she and her family faced while in hiding. Its sad to see young people suffer through pain like that for no reason; she can’t help it if she’s Jewish. The diary had a strong personal impact on me because it showed me how easily life can can change for the worst and how cruel people can be to others. It makes you wonder what would happen if the U.S. didn’t stay out of it for so long; how different it would be. Life is unpredictable so you should always be prepared for the worst.

  37. Cole Elliott on said:

    Anne Frank’s diary had a mojor impact on the world. Now we know what hard times they wentthrough to survive, and long you lived with those people. Anne’s diary also had a huge impact on my life I now know what Anne went through in hiding. Anne’s diary is a huge impact on the world and me.

  38. cole T on said:

    I think that it was very important that we found this diary because it is the only known diary we have found from WW2. And the cool thing is its from a thirteen year old girls point of view. I would say this book made a impact on me because there was more imformation in the book about the Nazis and WW2
