“Nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world” said Anne Frank , survivor hero. A very positive person even though she was hiding from Nazis, born in 1929 and died in 1945, Anne frank never gave up home for herself and others.


My hero Anne Frank was born on June 12, 1929 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In 1933-1945 Anne’s happy home in Europe got invade by Nazi’s. Anne’s parents decided to flea into hiding. And Anne and her family stayed in an addict’s annex for two long years. During these years Anne frank kept a diary (In which her parents gave her on her 13th birthday). Soon Anne frank’s family was found and the only surviving in the family was father Otto Frank. After the Holocaust Otto Frank decided to go back to the annex there he found daughter’s Anne Frank’s diary. He later published the diary and it is the most known international book in the world.


My hero, Anne Frank made a difference (to me) by inspiring people. She did this because she was a very happy, positive person even through horrible times she still always found a ray of light. Anne frank should be considered a hero by never giving of her hope for Judaism and for peace. She survived most of the holocaust. She always wanted to help the world. On of her quotes: “Nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”. Anne frank went to Montessori school and was an excelled student. At the year of 1938 her education at Montessori school ended, this was the year when all Jewish students where asked to leave German schools. Anne Frank’s education was not long.

Anne frank by definition is a survivor hero. I think she is a survivor hero because she really did survive it; she lived in an addict’s annex for two long years (with another family). She always found hope and was always a positive person through the toughest time she always kept a smile on her cheery face.
