In "The Diary of Anne Frank" Frances Goodrich shows that sometimes in order to help others you may have to sacrifice something of yours.
Throughout this play, many people sacrifice themselves in order to help others in need, and here are some examples.
Miep sacrifices herself for the people living in the annex, such as the Franks. Miep may have not done something outrageous, but she still helped out. Miep helped the Franks find a place where they could hide during the war, and she would always come and check in on them. Miep sacrificed her life to go and help them out, but if she was caught she would have been taken to a camp.
When Mr. Dussel came to live with the Franks, Anne agreed to share a room with Mr. Dussel. She sacrificed her room and her belongings for someone else.
Not only does Miep give them a place to stay at, but she also brings them food since it is not safe for them to leave their hiding spot. Miep sacrifices her food for the Franks.
There were many little sacrifices made throughout the play, but the Franks made a big sacrifice. The Franks gave every single one of the new people a welcomed invite to the annex, even though tough times were still going. They sacrificed one of the only things they had and shared it with the others.
