Anne Frank describes her living situation as a Jewish family hiding in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust. She explains how she is hidden in a family friend's house and must live with people from different families.
Anne Frank and her family, along with other Jews, are forced from their homes and onto trains that bring them to the concentration camps. On the trains, they are exposed to subhuman conditions, and these conditions only intensify once they get to Auschwitz.
Miep Gies gives a firsthand account of the capture of Anne Frank. She is regarded as heroic by the students of Ms. Gruwell's class because she and her family hid the Franks in their house during Nazi occupation. Miep refuses to take the title of "hero" and states it was the right thing to do.
