Storyboard Description

A young Jewish girl named Anne Frank lived through several hardships in a lifetime. Starting with the year of 1942, Anne and the rest of her family went into hiding from the Nazi’s, just like many other Jewish families at the time. German dictatorships, such as the Nazi’s, captured or executed anyone who was Jewish, or had a family member who was. Anne Frank’s family went into hiding in an attic apartment behind the Otto Frank’s business, located in Amsterdam. Whilst her mother, Edith Frank, took care of children at home; Anne Frank’s father, Otto Frank, was a German businessman. Although Anne Frank died in February 1945, in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, Germany, she was well-known for writing a whole-hearted diary, full of feelings and thoughts she had during the perilous time. The young girl and her elder sister, Margot Frank, died of Typhus fever when captured by the Nazi’s, among with several other Jewish hiding groups. Anne Frank was known as a legend, as well as her wholesome and heart-melting diary, written during the Holocaust.

  • OPEN UP!!
  • The Nazi's came. Take Anne and go to hiding spot right now.
  • Do you have a Jewish background? How about any kids?
  • No kids sir. We are just having dinner. We are not Jewish.
  • Where is the kitchen/ Are you the only people eating here? Was there anyone else for visit?
  • Yes sir. We are the only ones.
  • In the middle of dinner, there was a firm knock on the door, and Mama quickly hid both mine and my sister’s plates. We already knew what this meant. The Nazi’s were here. Papa anxiously whispered something to Margot and she quickly grabbed my hand as we went to our usual hiding spot, the attic apartment behind my fathers’ business.
  • We want to examine this house. Are you sure that no Jews are hiding?
  • Yes we are positive. There is no one else in the house.
  • Me and my sister froze in our spots, one little whisper or even one little sound could bring the Nazi’s here. We gingerly sat down, careful not to step on the old creaks or loose spots in the wood that would make a sound. 
  • Thank god they left. I'm so happy that hiding was successful.
  • Even here, I could here the tense voices of my parents as the Nazi’s examined our kitchen and rooms.
  • We were lucky that the Nazi's didn't notice us this time. But we can't hide forever...
  • *The girls are still hiding in the attic*This is the scene of Nazi's examining the house.
  • After examining the whole house, the Nazi's finally left. The girls are safe to come out of their hiding spot.
  • At the end of the day, me and my sister crawled in our bed, happy that another day of hiding was a success.
