Through my studies of the Holocaust and your life I came across
this book. Little did I know, sitting on my bookshelf was the
best book in the world, and it was written by a thirteen year
old girlwho was not afraid of telling the truthhad
a zest for life; a person who deserves to be admired. Your diary
made me realize something: Everyone is the same. Black, White,
Jewish, Christian, Chinese, Arabian, no one deserves to be treated
like you and six million others were. If you look past the skin
color, you can see a person just like yourself. You made me remember
that, what I have been told so many times.
After I read your diary
, I felt such a sense of tragedy, not only for you, but also for
six million others. It taught me many things, such as to care
a little about mankind. If you care and are willing to stand up
for what you believe in, you can save someone's life, or even
help them live one day longer .Your diary also made me remember
not to take things for granted, like freedom to be able to go
as you please, because you never know when someone might take
it away from you.
You and I are alike in
many ways. We both want to be writers, we are both typical teenagers,
we are mature for our age and we both wish we could confide more
in our friends. We both deal with the same everyday problems of
growing up. Strangely enough, you and I have the same ideas and
opinions, although, you were louder and more outgoing than me.
When you wrote your diary,
it gave me something from the Holocaust I can connect to. It also
gave me a role model. I admire you tremendously. I think that,
through your diary, I have made a very special friend. I know
more about you, than I do of my best friend of four years. Had
you lived in my generation, we could have been great friends.
Whenever I see or hear
prejudice of one sort or another, I can see your face, and think
of the six million innocent people who have been murdered by the
Nazis. Your legend is a symbol to me. A symbol of humanity .Your
legend stands for the "triumph of the spirit over evil and
death." The Nazis tried to cover up what they did, and others
chose to forget. Thanks to you that cannot happen.
